When my father-in-law passed in 2000 my mother-in-law had me sort through his tools. He wanted them to go to family. I threw all the busted Craftsman tools in a box. Mother-in-law asked why I wanted just the broken tools. Told her they will be new tomorrow. I have broken a few breaker bars and ratchets over the years, due to using excess force with an extension pipe on the handles. Sears always replaced them. Worn out screwdrivers too!

Sears around here are no more. But fortunately a few others got their mitts in da Craftman industry. Lowes, and i think Ace Hardware will also warranty them. Just a heads up.

Thanks for that info, glenns towing

Have you been able to take a broken Craftsman part for a replacement?

All my Craftsmen tools were bought at a Sears and Roebuck store. [craftsman.com]

I have replaced Craftsman tools at Lowe's.

Yes. I have replaced broken Craftman at Lowes. Somewhat recently was a ½ inch ratchet and ⅜ and ⁷/¹⁶ sockets. You have togo to da service desk tho, after finding what your after.

I've found that the local Ace and Lowe's carry lots of Craftsman tool sets, but very limited number of individual pieces making it hard to swap out a broken one. My local Ace had to order a small punch...that was two weeks ago and I still haven't heard anything.

I miss my well stocked Sears store...

I was at Lowes the other day and happened to see their stock of Craftsman sockets. They had quite a few individual sockets but had them in drawers with no real organization. The old Sears Store had them hanging on pegboard and easy to find what you wanted. Lowes could take a page from Sear's book on displaying products.
