Could this be the end of Sears as we know it? Every year 24/4 Wall St. puts together a list of 10 brands that they predict will not survive the next year. Unfortunately, number 5 on their list to go bye bye in 2012, is Sears. But don't start crying just yet, there might be some hope for Craftsman.

We didn't make it to the National Hardware Show, but the good thing about the tool blogging community is that we all share with each other.

Craftsman has just entered the laser measuring market, which would normally be good news, but in this case, Craftsman has me wondering why they even bothered. It is not as though the new laser measurer is a bad tool, it is just a tool that has too little to offer for its price in today's market. A mispriced tool, as it were.

Craftsman has a pretty cool YouTube channel where they showcase their tools being put though all kinds of torture and destruction. These videos are not only fun to watch, but they do a good job of demonstrating that the tools can handle a good amount of abuse. In their latest video, Craftsman shows their artistic side by making the destruction you hear everyday into music. They teamed up with music producer Kutiman to compose all that beating, sawing, cutting, grinding, hammering, chopping, etc. into music to our ears. No musical instruments were used in...

You heard me correctly; this is some truly socking news coming from both companies. The Craftsman name is so linked to Sears, it almost hard to picture it inside of another store. It is almost like pouring Coke into a Pepsi cup, it is just wrong. Starting in May of this year, 100 select Ace stores will begin selling Craftsman products. My guess would be stores not near current Sears stores. The Ace stores will carry Craftsman hand tools, portable power tools, compressors, vacs, and tool storage; so pretty much everything. Then starting in...
