There has just been a discussion of this over in
rec.crafts.metalworking. I could be wrong, but after a quick look
through the Sears website I found no mention of the Craftsman tool
lifetime warranty anywhere. They used to hype it quite a bit...
Guess I may to have to start buying tools again, haven't done that since
the 70's. I've just been returning the broken/worn ones over and over,
it was a good deal!
Kinda of sad in a way, for years now that was the last remaining reason
to go near their stores.
You didn't look very hard, it is most certainly still there though their
site isn't promoting it very well. Go to the Sears and/or Craftsman
sites and browse to an actual Craftsman hand tool listing. Select the
product specifications tab and look at the "General warranty" line and
you'll see "Full Unlimited", "Lifetime", "Guaranteed Forever" or similar
