Not that I ever knew of either, but they started carrying Husky tools about
10 years ago with a lifetime guarantee.   All I remember was Sears/Craftsman
and the Snap-On man that came by the shop.

There was a Home Depot over 40 years ago ??

Back then all we had here in the Chicago area were real hardware stores and
lumber yards.  You know - places that actually had good-quality American
products to sell and knowledgeable employees.

Now Homey and the like have driven most of those places out of business.
