No Menards near me. How is the quality? I'm pretty good on wrenches and sockets until I break one. Replacement screwdrivers from Craftsman are worthless. The Wiha and Wera screwdrivers I have are very good. May just get a set and be done. Lowe's and Home Depot have their on brands with lifetime warranty as well. Quality isn't there for me.
Excellent quality. All best grade steel made on craftsmans industrial line supposedly. I can send a link to sets I bought
Off-topic, but how have you found warranty replacements? My concern with Snap-On is that it seems to rolling-tool-truck driver dependent.
No problems with Snap-On warranty here. I've called and had a couple very old items replaced no questions asked. Sent me a ratchet rebuild kit and a brand new screw driver that I broke the tip off. Just call them from the website. Obviously they have to mail it, but still hassle free. They didn't even want any old parts sent back.
I used to love craftsman. The stuff I have from 20 years ago is great. Any hand tools I've bought in the last 5 years have been junk. My wife got me a nice tool box with ball bearing slides, and it's held up well. I probably buy a matching top before they're gone. Especially after this was announced: Stanley Black and Decker Buys Craftsman
Most of the tools that I need sparingly, or are some sort of one-time-use specialty item come from HF or Northern tool. Both sell decent stuff, that gets the job done. I'm sure the same can be said about their tool boxes.
I just went and looked at the US General toolbox at Harbor Freight this evening. The drawers are not quite as smooth as the more expensive ones but the cabinets feel heavy and good quality. I will probably pick one of the $329 boxes up. Didn't have my truck tonight.
