Yes! I had 4 older Mastercraft dark blue power tools with the "softfeel" coating on them (the craze in the 90's if you remember softfeel pens everywhere) and stored them for several years after I moved. Now they ALL have a sticky feel to them as the surface has obviously broken down. I actually found this thread by searching to see if otherpeople had this issue. It's horrible aFond I can't use a tool that leaves my hands sticky like that. Fortunately I have upgraded to Bosch and Porter Cable and will probably give these old tools away to someone in need.
