It's quite possible you can get parts for the next 1000 years, but:
1. Home Depot is not Sears.
2. True, Emerson is still in business, but not in the business of making
machines under contract for Home Depot. What sort of contract did they
have? Are the machines supported by Emerson or Home Depot? If HD, who will
make the parts in the future?
3. Home Depot is not Sears. (I think I already said that ;-))
All I'm saying is, don't be surprised...
Sears is no better than anyone else.
Went to get a new control for garage door opener. Sorry no longer carry that
went to get a new chain and bar for my chain saw Sorry no longer carry parts
for that saw.
All they want to do is sell new stuff so now I go elsewhere
I dunno. How about the replacement parts warranty on the Craftsman radial arm
saws? How old are some of those, the ones getting free guards, tables, etc.?
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the
people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent
and sudden usurpations."
