Just got my shipment this afternoon. Everything was made in USA except the anvil bypass pruners I bought (which weren't from this thread). I got the Craftsman professional slip and arc joint pliers, aviation snips, linesman pliers, large metric combination wrench set, & adjustable wrench in an insanely large box (3' x 1'). For some reason all the item numbers on the outer plastic or cardboard packaging were taped over with a white sticker... I guess because they are closeout, clearance or discontinued.
Despite the taped over item numbers all tools were brand new, no scratches, in original packaging...All the pliers & snips (as well as the lock latch) said made in USA on the hinge/pivot point, the adjustable wrench said USA on the lower edge of the jaw, each wrench had made in USA stamped along w/ the item number & was fully polished.
On what makes them professional. The finishes are really nice and the tools are really smooth. The handles are slightly cushioned for better comfort than the standard slip on thin rubber or worse bare metal knurled grip tools.
Honestly I have a Husky branded (home depot house brand) adjustable plier that has the same cushioned handle design as the craftsman professional adjustable arc joint plier, but the finish on the metal on the craftsman professional & the opening and closing/pivoting is slightly smoother. With this deal the Craftsman professional was cheaper.. but at regular prices the Husky was less.
For $100 after $15/100 tools coupon & some SYWRewards I had overall a great deal. I'm going to need a bigger tool chest with all these Craftsman, GearWrench & Kobalt deals. I just spent another $100+ tonight on tools in the GearWrench thread. to feed my tool addiction
