In the early 70s when you had to turn the distributor on a Chevy small block to set the timing, you needed a 9/16 angled wrench to loosen the bolt. My dad took a 9/16 wrench from a Japanese set he had, put it in a vise, and whacked it with a hammer a few times and made his own. So there is a market for this crap.

Both Sears and JC Penny are on the edge.....they got there with people buying the off shore stuff at Walmart....can't blame any politician for that.

You get what you pay for.....in this case more Walmarts and fewer choices.

Hot topic. I for one will not buy craftsman any longer (at least the products confirmed to NOT be made in the US). It's hard. This country has fallen far from its design. However, global economics is real and will continue to expand and evolve.

Just wait until the combustion engine is taxed so heavily for it's use that we watch NASCAR with Prius and Volt. ..it IS coming.
