You have to contact Craftsman directly now for warranty claims.

I see their power tools as a Ryobi competitor as the price points are similar. Decent for homeowners and weekend warriors. Maybe some pros like the crews that assemble and install office furniture?
I don’t know about the warranty on their power tools. My father in law has a cordless drill that is a turd. It’s heavy, has no power, the chuck is funky. I won’t use it unless I’m stuck at his house and unexpectedly wind up fixing something; I wound up fixing the pull out on their kitchen sink faucet one time in a tuxedo. I think they regard me as the guy who fixes stuff and nothing more.

If you read the fine print, the warranty on their toolboxes is effectively null. I went after them about one of their toolboxes once but they weaseled their way out of it.

I’d really love to go with a different box. But this one meets my needs really well. It’s just also a turd.

It seems like a lot of you guys like to go with bags. I wouldn’t be so opposed to them, except for I have found that when I have tools poking out of the side pockets or even the top, makes it easy for me to catch the tools on something and possibly scrape or break something. This is not ideal for me. I think someone mentioned that above. This probably also serves to out myself as a little bit of a doofus. But I know what my limits are, and I don’t want to break stuff inside of peoples houses. Hence the plastic box with a color other than black on the bottom.

Kobalt tote. Some or all of you may be laughing. 16-ish bye eight-ish inside, flat bottom, slots and pockets inside and out. Started as a three compartment inside, folded the dividers back and got one big hole for parts and trash and two extra hard pockets.
Shockingly well-built, handle folds clear. One big drawback is that the tools on the outside snag pulling it in and out of the van if I'm not careful.
Water heater service tools fit in a 10 inch ditty.
What is a 10 inch ditty?

A 'Ditty Bag" is just an old term for a small bag you use for trips. My grandparents used to say that. Color me surprised to see that term on here.

Why are they called ditty bags?


A Ditty Bag (or box) was originally called “ditto bag” because it contained at least two of everything: two needles, two spools of thread, two buttons, etc. With the passing of years, the “ditto” was dropped in favor of “ditty” and remains so today.May 5, 2019

Yeah like he said
