So I’m new to LumberJocks, as I’m starting into woodworking and wanted to expand my knowledge by joining a woodworking community of some sort. There is something I would like to reveal about myself that I would like to get out of the way first. I am very loyal to Craftsman tools. It began when I was setting up my shop and discovered an old wood vise that my Dad inherited from his Dad – something about knowing that that impressed me of how solid a brand can be and what it can represent, and since I have committed to it, I have never regretted it. Some might say it’s obsessive, as I have lots of Craftsman tools, Craftsman promotional items, and even Craftsman clothes and shoes. Yeaaaaa. I hope you can all put up with that. This place seems Craftsman-friendly, too. For those who are anti-Craftsman however, it’s useless to point out to me that some of the tools are made in China or are of poor quality. If you want to dislike me for that, I have no issues, but please don’t provoke or harass me about it, as I will defend the brand until I am red in the face!
