Just a note about Sears Service Centers....There is one here that I sometimes
frequent.  When my Craftsman reciprocating saw that I bought on sale for $80
quit working, (must have been all that angle iron I cut) I took it to the
service center for repair.  The lady said there is a "standard charge for all
repairs to reciprocating saws of ...(guess how much?) $80."

She then said they had some "reconditioned" saws for $69!  I bought a heavy
duty replacement for $69...took my old one home and opened it up to find a
loose wire...so now I hve two.

She let me look through a bin in the back of the store where they piled the
"reconditioned" tools....I also picked up a 2 7/8 HP skilsaw for $39.00!

Cool place the Service Center.
