For some reason most of my stuff has always been Craftsman . When I first started out in the machining world I went to the local Sears and bought a edge finder a mic a dial caliper, ruler and stuff it was all Craftsman , I was not aware of any other place to go . It was good stuff , I was happy . And even before that I would always go to that same Sears to buy wrenches and screw drivers . Come to think of it I got my clothes there too haha . So when I started my shop in the early 80's I had progressed to other stuff , but I still had my Craftsman stuff too . I closed down my shop about 10yrs. ago , everything went the only thing I kept was a 6" Mitutoyo vernier caliper . About 3yrs. ago a friend gave me a 6" Craftsman lathe , so I thought I need a drill press too I looked around at a lot of makes but wound up with a Craftsman . Then my wife bought me a Craftsman shop vac for my birthday . I started buying stuff I needed to tool up and it keeps coming up Craftsman . I bought a Kennedy box , it was beat to shi* the brown wrinkle that Kennedy sells was not in the budget so I bought this red wrinkle paint and stuck on a Craftsman badge (I don't know why) , it just happened . I think it's a Freudian thing , no wait it could just be a quinkidink .
