Agreed on using it for all possible times as Bill, so far my Craftsman one is showing no signs of wear.

While it may not be the highest quality or best product, the Craftsman offers the standard Sears lifetime warranty. Free replacement on any craftsman tool if you are unsatisfied.

It breaks, they replace it at your local Sears. And there'* nothing better than free replacement when you need the tool the most and can't finish the job with out it.

I can't argue with "The Bills", but should note that the two of you are hardly casual/occasional mechanics. Average joe might use this tool maybe a dozen times in his lifetime.

BTW, so nobody gets the wrong idea, I'm all for buying the best tool I can afford. Particularly since I'm a tool addict. But I'm not above buying a cheapo if that'* what I can afford at the time and I don't expect to use it very often.

Don't buy the chinese counterfits; they may look similar, but their quality is junk. If there'* one thing us Americans do right, is build excellent tools.

Google MAYHEW 28650 or go here:

Wow, looking back I wonder who wrote my last response.

Lash - I completely agree. Why spend extra money if it'* not necessary.

Not sure if I can agree with the Mayhew since Bill Buttermores is starting to fray on the cable, this isn't the place for a discussion on quality of the Mayhew though. (That'* another thread).

That Ebay one should work for the job, and once you use one of these spring clamp tools, you'll like it. It takes all the challenge out of spring clamps, easy to get at or hidden behind a strut tower.

Well I know one thing for certain, their punches and chisels are first rate.
