Today’s Craftsman wrenches are certainly not the Craftsman wrenches of years ago. They may have the same warranty, but the quality is not there. Not saying they will break, but they are about twice as heavy and clunky now. I have some old Craftsman wrenches I bought as a teenager and they fine quality tools, thin and light and strong. The thickness is consistent, the openings are centered, well finished. Today they look just like the crap wrenches from HF. In fact, while Craftsman seems to be in a race for the bottom in quality the HF stuff seems to be improving.
