I have a question: does anyone remember when J.C. Penney used to put its name on power tools, during the ‘60s, ‘70s and early ‘80s? Most of the ‘70s and early ‘80s tools were made by Skil.
A few image twins:
There were others I’ve seen with the JCP branding that were related to Skil’s model 497 variable-speed jig saw and the model 457 3/8” variable-speed-reversing drill.

And, the big question is, would any of you happen to have any of these rare image-twin power tools?
