cornwell tools
« on: October 2, 2016, 03:27:54 AM »
I bought these about 35 years ago , 15/16 deep was broken and welded up, 1/2 chrome was wore out , 3/8ths stubby and 1/4 ratshit were wore out , wobble 3/4x1/2 drive was broken . I worked as a heavy equipment mechanic , tools got ABUSED every day . Cornwell replaced these , some thing I never expected . They are a USA manufacturer ( ohio ) and have very good quality stuff , and hard to find items that make the job possible. support them if you can .

    Do you think the replacements are of the same quality as the originals? Sears had/has the lifetime replacement policy. In the past i have taken some worn out broken sears tools (Made in USA) and got replacements with a CHINA linage.

    yes , they appear to be about the same as the old ones , except for the shitty new style size lettering on the 15/16ths that looks like a sears/china . one of those TV auto shows , gears , maybe its called , had a show on Cornwell , showing the foundry , looks like something from the '30s still , alot of hand work , I think they are still USA .They were/are a tool truck kind of tool like snap on but better quality / and 35 years ago , cheaper than snap on was . Been a long time since I've seen the blue/white tool trucks tho , I think they are/were about like Williams and Proto , great stuff , but unheard of .  and I agree with ya about sears , had a sears roebuck torque wrench , ratchet bad , sears wouldn't even give me a kit for it . waited another 20 years , went to a hardware store selling sears tools , guy was so amazed sears ROEBUCK ?! he put it on his antique show display , and gave me a new one , yeah the old one WAS better !
