Warranty= 30 feet or 30 seconds. Whichever comes first.

Most warranties are not worth the paper they are printed on even if they are in 6 languages.

Most have to have the receipt, proof of purchase label, original box etc. and if any of these is missing they wont take them. and will only give credit on another sale etc. if they do.
\I never buy anything based on the warrentee.

Long ago I found that most things you buy has a manufacturer's warranty, good for a year. Anything still working after a year is likely to keep on working. So, basically, buying a warranty means you're wasting money.

An electronics store in Calgary Alberta went belly up years ago, and took 9 million worth of extended warranties with it

I agree Herb. Home Depot has a life time warranty on some of their tools. The problem is all the stuff you have to do to make the warranty good.

I have the M.U.L.E. brand fence on my old Craftsman table saw. When cutting boards for a blanket chest, I noticed that I was not getting both sides parallel. After going through a complete table saw tune-up, I checked the fence and determined that it had a .015” bow toward the blade. Does not sound like much until you place several boards together for glue up. Purchased the fence in 2001 at a wood show. Called the company and they are sending me a new rail. Policy is lifetime warranty and customer service was excellent.

When you have CS like that, who needs a warranty? Unfortunately, those companies are few and far between. OTOH, Amazon's return policy is very good. Of course, not everything we use is available through Amazon....yet.
