    Wouldn't say theyve gone to shit but quality has dropped off noticably. At least in their corded tools. I don't do cordless.

    Most of all my tools are Craftsman and most over 40+ years old. Had a rachet break one time and they replaced it no problems
    Gettin old is for pussies! AND MY NEW TRUE people say like Capt. Tom >>>>>>>>>/
    "Wow, often imitated but never duplicated. No one can do it like the master. My hat is off to you DRDUCK!"

    I would go find an old set made with good American metal from before the recycling junk metal we have now. Someone on here said they went to a pawn shop and they told him to pick out whatever he needed and take it home for free they had so much of it. Doesn't sound like my pawn shop experience when the guy tried to charge me double for a used (stolen) Ambassaduer reel once, but might be worth a try.

    Just bitch, pitch a fit, and swear you bought it from Lowe's and they'll give you an in-store credit on a similar item. Get your gift card, and go buy whatever you want, or just sell it on Ebay for 3% off.

    What kind of ghetto were you raised in?
    Be proactive about improving public waterfowl habitat in South Carolina. It's not going to happen by itself, and our help is needed. We have the potential to winter thousands of waterfowl on public grounds if we fight for it.

    A question many have pondered, but on this one, trust him. He has the inside track...

    It surely is.

    Sometimes it is people being worthless pieces of shit. Sometimes it is just a customer service issue.

    Example: little old lady with a broken Goldstar microwave. She was probably over 85, and SWORE up and down she got it there, how she could not afford another one, nearly in tears, etc.

    Long story short, I got her a comparable microwave and sent her on her way.

    The ones that suck are the ones with other stores' crap, or stolen merchandise.

    Anyway...people suck! Retail made me lose even more faith in humanity.
