    Maybe for a homeowner.
    For a professional that uses his tools to make a living, they're not worth the powder to blow them to hell.

    The shop I used to work at used to use "Crapsman" tools for everything, until the boss needed a tool that had been broken for a month. He then asked if he could use mine (4 times the price). I said no.
    He bitched and moaned, but I said that since he wouldn't listen when someone who should know the difference speaks, that it was a good life lesson for him. And I made him go get the replacement (which sears didn't have in stock at the time - needed to make THREE trips) because I didn't use or break that tool, and refused to be a party to more stupidity.

    I don't really like any craftsman power tools or mowers etc, but I think they have some decent hand tools, not top of the line like snapon, but they are not bad JMO
