Same here---I have a set from the later 80's, Snap On USA made brand. Garage/yard and flea markets would be a great resource when looking for the older better made stuff like tools, especially when Craftsman was a fantastic brand name.
I'm glad this is being so well received so far---would hate to see anyone injured not knowing of this recall.
As as much as I criticize HF its good they recalled these stands, could be CYA move though. None the less if they're off the market that's a good thing.
