    Goatcabin's thread made me think of my love for crusty old tools so I'ma post pics of some of my Jew gold (crusty old tools).

    Finding crusty old Craftsmen tools are the best. Especially if they are broken.

    You can take them back to Sears and they give you new ones. Total win!

    When I was younger, my much older brother gave me a craftsman ratchet that had been used as a hammer. Didn't work at all and had beat marks all over it. I took it into sears and without questioning why it was beat to hell, they gave me a new one, which I still have.

    Yea, wish they did it with power tools too. But I guess that would be asking a lot. :p

    They used to make Craftsman tape measures. They stopped because tradesmen broke the tape all the time and could just exchange them. I still have a couple broken ones from when I was in the trades
