thats why I have craftsman screwdrivers.........the guys at sears said they would take back ANY broken craftsman tool for any reason, except if they see teethmarks in them.

I find broken pliers, etc, that the plumbers leave around on some sites, go and return the tool to them ( cause tool thieves are the scum of the earth) and they tell me not to bother. I tell them it can be replaced, and the tell me to keep em. Sweet deal, free tools and all I gotta do is take it back.

I like craftsman screwdrivers also. I started carring them once they made the handle's like kleins.

Craftsmen are good? I am looking into finding a new brand because I am sick of the Klein phillips screwdrivers twisting from a cross into almost a swastika looking shape.

I have the Klein conduit pliers and swear by them, I think they are very handy and not a problem to have in your back pocket.

The reamer only works on EMT, and call it lazy, but I dont want to use a file - except when I am installing a mast. FOr branch circuits, the channellocks get the rough edges out good enough.

Settle down - I was joking about the reamer.

I cut pipe with a fine tooth 24TPI sawzall blade. Channellocks work well for the job. Company is too cheap to buy a threader, so I only use compression connectors.

DOnt know who that is, but we just do residential.... no real 'need' for a threader. Would be handy at times though.

they're a particularly notorious commercial contractor out of the Oakland area.

they have a reputation for working apprentices for more hours than paid...but I didn't get into 595 so screw it anyways...got a much better deal up here.

A good file doesn't take but a couple passes to get the burrs out and I generally hit the threads to dull them slightly while im at it. If I dont I always have a hundred tiny cuts all filled with oil by the end of the day.

Before someone says "just wear gloves" I've never been able to work with gloves, it's about like taking a bath with your socks on.

It works great and I often have the hammer drill near me when running pipe.

I was kind of planing around doing this with a 4" steel lock nut on a steel connector. I am 100% certain I could have kept going until the lock nut cut entirely through the box.
