Reported this morning: Stanley Black & Decker has agreed to purchase the Iwin and Lenox brands from Newell Rubbermaid for $1.95 billion.http I wonder what this is going to mean for us as woodworkers. With SB&D being the parent company of DeWalt, I can’t imagine that they are going to want to keep multiple brands of similar ite...

One of the b...
