Technically, it's not a Craftsman if it wasn't made in the US, or at least that's how I see it. I do still buy lots of tools at sears and they're great, but I only get the ones made here as all the other crap sucks.

When you buy tools specifically for a ZJ only to do one job that you know you're going to have to do again at some point.

When you permanently modify tools to "fix" something.
