I purchased a 1/2 drive torque wrench back in the mid 70's and was replaced by sears maybe 2 times up to 1980. In the early 80's i bought another one for a back up. Well my back up wrench broke and my other wrench wouldn't click no more so off to sears i went to get me 2 new wrenches. they first said that they would order me in 2 new units at no charge. i get a call from them about a week later and was told that they couldn't do the deal. i went into sears to talk face to face with them. they told me that sears had no record that i owned the wrenches. i said "what does that matter" he then said that sears can't search back that far to see if they even had a lifetime warranty in the mid 70's (i know they did because they replaced it twice) then he asked me to read the package on the NEW torque wrenches where it said 1 year warranty. i said - you don't get it do you? when i bought them they had the warranty now sears is changing the rules. I said so if you buy a new car with a 5 year warranty and your tranny fails in 1 year and then the manufacturer says they changed it to a 90 day warranty you would be fine with that? he said sure.... i knew i wasn't getting anywhere with him and i was getting hot. so i left. now i'm on a web rampage to get sears to replace my torque wrenches. you guys probably think i'm crazy. maybe i am?
