IIRC sometime last year, Danaher quit making Craftsmen tools, and now a different company makes them.

For years I have bought Stanley tools. I know they are made by Danaher, which also make Proto and Mac. They work for me and generally are pretty cheap. Last year I was walking thru Walmart's clearence isles when I spotted a 90 peice set of Stanley hand tools. They had 10 sets or so, marked down to $9.99 clearence price and the original price was $29. Bought a set and then discovered when I got it home, why it was $10. Factory left off the latches on the case. little shipping screw was all that held it togther. For $10 it was well worth it. Just organized the tools into my box and set the case aside.

I have not bought much at Sears in 10 years, and nothing Sears/ Craftsmen branded at all in recent years
