Charles, I currently own very little newer craftsman stuff but am continually impressed that they are probably better tools than most people think they are. Not great but better than they are made out to be.

I weld a lot and cut metal with a 4” grinder. I’d burn out about one a year, Millwaukee, Hitachi, dewalt…. The gear head would fry after several months. Lots of use though, I run them a lot and run them hot. I decided to buy a craftsman one with the $7 three year warranty. I figured, I’d burn it out within 12 months and just go get a new one. I’d never have to by a grinder again. That was five years ago and I’m still using this thing. It’s beat up and the brushes must be almost gone but it’s still cutting. I wonder what they do that the others don’t?

-- The smell of wood, coffee in the cup, the wife let's me do my thing, the lake is peaceful.
