Free Sears tool catalog

Per a posting today from Cooltools, you can get a Sears tool catalog for free:

“On a recent trip to Sears, I was happily surprised to see a thick catalog near the checkout. I hadn’t realized the Sears Tool Catalog is still in print, still available for free, and just about as big as the old Radio Shack catalogs I used to get.

It’s not just Craftsman tools in here. They have all of your professional brands inside, and some wicked tools you can’t find at a brick-and-mortar Sears. Woodworking tools are well-represented. Mechanics tools are, too, as you’d expect, including SK tools and some small specialty brands; also shop equipment, even some boots and clothing. Sears has also recently made major upgrades to what it’s calling its interactive catalog.

One Response to Free Sears tool catalog

  1. Sears has long had a reputation for offering tools that are "modified" from the standard offerings. There might be a single-character difference in the model number, such as an added "R"–and on the inside, you will find, for instance, that metal parts have been replaced by plastic ones.
