    I received this tool for a father's day gift this year 2008
    This tool will NOT shut OFF! The switch is stuck in the on position!
    Very dangerous and very unsafe.
    I called CTC for help and they said call the number in my owners manual!!!
    I threw that crap out with the box it came in!
    After on hold for 7 minutes I got a number from the store clerk 1800 689 9928 CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS he gave me a number for a NON WORKING MERCHANT SERVICES? Now I'm back on hold trying to get the number again!!!
    Finally I got JOBMATE number 1 866 562 6283
    Upon speaking with the customer service rep (BARB) I was told no receipt no
    warranty!
    And after 1 year too bad!!
    Wait a minute this is a safety issue.! This is no difference than purchasing a vehicle long after the warranty is over and having a seat belt that wont disengage !
    Sorry even if it catches on fire and burns your house down your out of luck!
    Now I have a number for JIN DING the manufacturer 1866 349 8665 ext 203
    which is now looking into the matter
    What a bunch of crap!
    Soooooooooooooooo, must be nice for a person like you to have the f@#%$ time to write a novel about a broken tool. And you must be the type of person that writes about all his/her life problems on line and actually doesn't have a life.
    So are ya whining to Walmart? Costco? Damn, get a life..... maybe your a crappy father... My son loves me, I got a Dewalt................ boob

    Re: Jobmate

    Yes I would sue them both. I drove a tow truck for years and that guy that towed your car was an idiot with no respect. wouldnt matter if your car went to Kingston that is the job he chose to do and he get paid to do it!!! . And as for Canadian Tire I have been dealing with them many many years and everytime I into a store it just makes me sick the bull I go through with warranty and parts. As for the mechanic shops they have I would not let them fix my Granddaughters tricycle. Good luck keep us posted with the ABC Towing we can bash them next.

    Cool Re: Jobmate

    I only buy jobmate when I know its a tool I have a one time use for, or for something that I expect a normal Mastercraft/DeWalt product to fail on. Good Example : I make a living with heatguns. I do window tint on cars, and I'm constantly burning them out. It really doesn't matter the brand, if you use a device 5+ hours a day, it WILL die. I don't expect warranty service from DeWalt or anyone really.... I abuse them.

    But a DeWalt or Mastercraft model is 99+. If you wait for the sales, the similar JobMate is 9.99-19.99 depending. Last time they were on for 9.99 I bought 15 of them. On average, a JobMate will last about half as long as a MasterCraft, no denying it. But for the price, no one cares. You dont expect your Chevy Aveo to last as long as a BMW 330, and you shouldn't be expecting the same thing from your tools.

    Be reasonable people

    Re: Jobmate

    a couple years ago I bought a Jobmate rotary tool (Like a dremel) for i think 9 bucks on sale at the tire. the next week i bought an accessory kit with every blade, wheel, stone etc.. you can imagine, i think it's like 600 pcs and cost about 14 bucks, regular 90. So for less then 25 bucks about 1/10th the cost of a dremel i have five times the accessories and the tool. Has never failed. I've cut abs, copper, various metals and plastics, polished things, sanded things, cut off wheel, grinder it was a great buy

    can't be all bad at the tire

    JobMate is ok it is a cheap tool some good some not.
    My kids gave me a JobMate 18V cordless drill about 8 years ago and for the first two years I used it all day every day. no problem except the lube smells from the brushes arcing. I still use it now and then when my Porter Cable which is about 15 years old is in need of charging. and the JobMate still works, So does the JobMate Skill saw they gave me years ago. But when my wife bought a JM 120 piece tool set I threw them out right away. they look cheep. feel cheep and the case was even a piece of crap.
    On the other hand CTC pro or Maxxum wrenches and tools are great and I have never had a problem. And when they are on sale which is every week the deal is even better than sears.
    CTC auto service sucks and they are stretching it to even call it that. But there again ..... find decent honest reliable auto service anywhere anymor and your lucky.

    He was stating that the oil filters were Chinese, not North American.

    generally Chinese items lack in the quality department. And for something so vital to your car, it's a little important to use a good quality part.

    And if you are in fact a CT manager. . . I thought managers for a large store needed something more than "grade 3 in McDonald's academy" to work there. apparently I was wrong.

    Re: Jobmate

    My brother took his car in to get the brakes bled, basic 10-minute procedure right? wrong.

    They had him wait 4 hours, and in the end, they snipped his lines! and charged him $400!
