They sure don't make them like they used to. First off I'm a craftsman fan, I don't care where they are made or how shitty the quality control is, I'm staying with them. However, I'm seeing exactly why they are not what they used to be. On black Friday i went to lowes and bought a 33 gallon compressor. My old craftsman compressor was bought on black Friday in 2003 so all those years out of a compressor was excellent but the old thing is tired and it's time for a new one. So they load up the new one on Friday and I get it home and unpack it and run it and I hear a pretty mean air leak. Turns out there is a 1 and quarter inch plug on the bottom that houses the drain plug. The plug lug is supposed to have an O ring. The o ring was broke and only pieces of the o ring remained. I couldn't find an o ring and didn't have time for it so back to lowes it went to get another compressor. So I get another one, get it home and unpacked, start running it and huge air leak again but this time the leak sounds like it's coming from near the motor. So I look around and find a loose fitting . All I had to do was tighten the fitting and problem solved. All ended well but gee whiz is it so hard for them to take care of the issues like they are supposed to. There's no more plug and play, there's only buy, quality check it yourself, service it, and maybe play. Once I pulled teeth and got it going, it's beautiful.... much quieter and faster than the old one.
