1. I bought this set 25 years ago when I bought my house.

2. I’ve on;y got the awl left. Lost everything else. Lol

3. Sold out.

4. Made in China. :(
1. I’ve had mine about the same amount of time.

2. I might have 2 of them left (lost the awl).

3. Sold out.

4. Poor bastards. If they got them 25 years ago, they would have got a decent set of screwdrivers.

5. I bought my last piece of craftsman gear 10 years ago. Will never buy another. Sellouts sold out, I hope their business dies out.

Now that Sears is gone, were do you go to replace a broken socket with their life time warranty? Lowes has craftsman tool kits but they don't stock individual sockets.
You can’t - you have to buy a Stanley Black & Decker set and abide by their warranties now. Or you could do what I did and get a set of WWII Plomb wrenches, and new FACOM & MATCO socket wrenches. My Kobalt screwdrivers were close to the end of their US production run. Now that those are getting a bit long in the tooth, I picked up a set of Wurth screwdrivers.

I scored the ratcheting wrench set in both metric and standard about 10 years ago from a African-American Last-Day-Of-The-Work-Week sale. Thank you tanking local economy. It was probably 2009. Silver City Galleria. Wife and daughter went. I guess there was NO ONE at Sears. I might have paid $20 for each set of 8 or 10 wrenches. I don't use them often, but they are nice to have.

Of course for the same $20 today you could buy the entire Silver City Galleria.

MidwayUSA may be trying to clear their stock of this .308 Winchester upper. I bought one last month when it was "sale" priced at $449 now they have it a $410.
The example I received looks solid, keeping in mind I have not mated it to a lower yet and tested.

We all know you get what you pay for, but it is a DPMS pattern LR-308 upper with BCG for $410 with a 1-year warranty, so great value or wasted cash at that price I can afford to find out.

I did order two. I figure I can store brass and hulls in them and probably the .45 reloads. It'll be neater than the Amazon delivery boxes I currently use
I ordered 3. 2 of them showed up today. I was easily able to fit 1,000 rounds of 9mm, .45 or 223 in each of the cans (still boxes). They stack well, but are very heavy when loaded.
