Here’s how to win:
I rarely work with retaining snap rings, but when I do they sometimes come at me in waves of different styles and sizes. While my changeable multi-tip internal and external snap ring pliers are great to use, changing those tips out many times in a single project can be quite tedious.
IndyEngineer sent us a heads-up that Craftsman’s SAE Dog Bone wrench is currently on sale (normally priced $25.99). While this style of combination wrench isn’t suitable for heavy duty, delicate, or precise work, it seems to be quite popular. The metric set is also on sale for $19.99 Craftsman SAE Dog Bone Wrench via Sears […]
With their pivoting box ends, Craftsman’s ratcheting elbow wrenches are anything but ordinary. Possibly inspired by similarly styled indexable ratchets, these elbow wrenches are designed for use in tight spaces and situations where a fastener may be obstructed. Curious about whether these new wrenches were innovative, gimmicky, or both, we set out to review them. In the end, […]

As we discussed when the Craftsman-Ace partnership was first announced, Craftsman tools were expected to be stocked by Ace Hardware locations ahead of Father’s Day. Reader Eric sent us a note that he heard a radio advertisement which mentioned Craftsman tools carried by Ace. We have also seen some heavy Craftsman promotion by Ace, especially on […]

Craftsman’s World’s Best Dad socket and ratchet set has dropped in price recently to $10. We’ve been tracking this set for a while, but the price never seemed right at $25-$30.

Those crazy guys at the Craftsman Labs have taken their tool torture to a whole new level. With the help of musician/composer/ producer Kutiman, they created the following music video. Every sound you hear was created with Craftsman tools. There was definitely a lot of creativity involved – some tools were banged together (wrench xylophone) and […]
I’ve had Craftsman’s 2008 Holiday Tool Preview catalog on my desk for a few months now, but have not quite found the right time to talk about it. Actually, I don’t think that there will ever be a good time to talk about it – it’s not exactly a simple or straightforward issue. The thing […]
If you recall, we reviewed the Craftsman Mitermate a few months ago. Afterwards, the question in everyone’s minds was: how well does it perform compared to an ordinary miter saw? For the answer to this, check out my comparative review over at Popular Mechanics! Craftsman Mitermate vs. Dewalt DW713 Miter Saw via Popular Mechanics Craftsman Mitermate […]

The kit is scheduled for release on May 1st 2010, and is available for pre-order at $170. Craftsman Nectec Drill/Driver, Saw, Sander Combo via Sears Preview Post of the New […]
There’s definitely something strange going on between Sears and their Craftsman brand, and I have a feeling that it goes way beyond the recent agreement to sell Craftsman tools at Ace Hardware. Just take a look at the cover of Sears’ 2010-2011 tool catalog – Craftsman tools are missing!
