I suppose a hammer is among the last things one would write a review about. Once you get past stuff like balance and material (cast? Forged?), there's not a lot to talk about unless the thing falls apart in normal use - yes, it's happened. And, other than little design tweaks here and there, there's not much new under the sun with a tool that normally has no moving parts. Except for this one. The timing couldn't have been better, either: I've been tasked with removing molding from a few storage closets that shouldn't have had them installed in the first place, and, amazingly, I didn't have a single pry bar to my name. since I recently bought a Craftsman air compressor and air tank from Sears, I figured I'd check them first before the usual online suspects. And I came across this. Brilliant...and *no one's* come up with this idea before? I like the fact that, in addition to both the degree and ease of adjustability, there's very little play in the mechanism, which initially was a concern. Haven't used the magnetic nail-starter, but it looks pretty well thought-out as well. After what seems to me like a long time in the wilderness, it's nice to see Craftsman/Sears starting to get its mojo back with products like this. Recommended.
Ordered online craftsman hammer to pick up@kmrt store. At register worker scaned pick up as fast as possible denying me to overlooking product in bag prior to scanning. i then opened bag and instead of craftsman claw hammer they gave me a USED stanley claw hammer. Girl at register offered $ back. Requested to speak to kmart manager in avenel location. Instead of coming in.person they called girl at register and told to give refund. Requested back order & was denied. Requested to pick up at sears@livingston mall. Manger denied. Requested to call another kmart location. They called said was located in west orange nj. Asked if they can bring item.nope told me drive there to.pick up. Refunded me $$ but lost 34 dollars earnedin.points earned after transaction refunded. Do not shopkmrtavenelnj
Bought this to go with the larger one I purchased recently, nice concept!
The G R E A T E S T hammer ever invented. I have two (in different weights) and have purchased two more as gifts for my son-in- laws. Craftsman tools have been a part of my life for over 60 years. you can never go wrong with Craftsman tools.
