I have a King Seeley / Craftsman drill press, a Parks made Craftsman planer and a 1950’s Craftsman table saw (backup for smaller work) I am happy with all of them and believe (especially with the planer) that they are better then what is available today. Also, I purchased them for next to nothing. $40 for the Drill Press, $40 for the table saw and $150 for the planer. With a little work, they are great tools. I don’t think I would buy anything new from Craftsman unless I was really cautious. The last tool I bought from Sears was a two base 2HP router when it was on sale for $79.99 a few years ago. It is a good router that I used for hand work. I don’t count on it as a workhorse in my shop, but I am happy with it.
