Do any of you (still) have any Montgomery Ward “Powr Kraft” power tools that were glorified versions of Black & Decker power tools from the 1978-83 period?
Basically, Wards had B&D add a few decorative touches here and other changes there to distinguish the Wards version from a mainstream B&D product.
Here’s one example:
1981 Wards Christmas catalog page with the glorified B&D stuff:
Wards products made by Black & Decker are given the code letters “XBA” before the catalog #.
