People are always saying “they don’t make them like that anymore”. Off course that is 100% true, but that goes both ways. When tool manufacturers started making and selling tools around 100 years ago, they made a tool that was designed to last a lifetime and many of those tools have survived to this day. Back then, companies competed against each other to produce long lasting quality tools, because that was what the public demnaded. Today they don’t compete on the basis of quality, but on price. When price is a factor, quality always suffers. The days of the lifetime tool is gone forever. Companies no longer can nor do they want to make anything that lasts a lifetime; bad for business.
