Lets see…I use a all metal Skil Home Shop 6” circular saw about as much as the all metal Sears Craftsman 7-1/4” one

I have a sears VINTAGE dual wheel 6” grinder, still going strong
I have two sears Crftsman bandsaws, both working good
A Sears Craftsman 13” Scrollsaw, paid $10 at a yard sale, still going good.

A Craftsman 22” miter box and saw are used. My late father would only buy Craftsman handtools. He retired as head of mechanics at the Oh Depatment of Transportation Garage, DIV 7

A few years back, notice Sears had come out with a new, all metal router. I bought the router kit, fixed and plunge base. Other then the Craftsman markings…same as a Bosch.

I do not buy any Sears drills, had too many die on me. Cordless were the worse.

Handplanes? Stanley made for Wards No. 3 (WWII era) and a No.78 Both work just fine.

Trying to sell my Craftsman 113.xxxx because of lack of shop space. Still runs great. Bought it new in the Sears store.
