    I thought that Sears and Craftsman were barely hanging on financially?

    Imported wrenches not good for business when I can get lifetime guaranteed, made in USA, elsewhere.

    Crapsman got sold to Stanley black and decker. If sears fails before the end of the deal, sbd walks away. If you want good USA tools, buy sk, Wright, or the tool truck brands. If country of origin isn't important, buy carlyle from napa or sunex, both those brands hold their own against us tools.

    I have a trolling motor that would go great with that set.

    Wouldn't be much help for your trolling motor, Ted Williams reel is electric and uses all 36 volts, if you don't believe
    it, ask Wong.

    He could still hook the trolling motor up to one battery and use it while running that reel.

    We don't use battries down on the coast, we use 110v motors with long drop cords

    Dang. I haven't been in a Sears store in approximately 10 years, but have a garage full of their Craftsman tools.
    Not looking good for Sears and their future.

    I don't have a lot, but I liked their automotive specialty tool aisle. No more. They shipped most of it out, and are down to 1 4 foot section that's mostly bare. My bent USA made brake piston pusher got replaced by a taiwanese one.

    Judging by their bare shelves, it looks like my local sears will be on the chopping block next. What a shame. Growing up by Flint, you could walk into the genessee valley mall sears, and outfit an entire shop. They sold everything. Only thing the shelves are full of are the gimmick tools, that they have been cranking out.
