It is a little old, but likely coming of age! :-)
Seems that Sears is tired of hunting down companies that would make a line of tools for them. Every few years the product line would be changed as the manufacturer would win a new contract.
I suspect they ran out of low end bidders other than overseas. So the Craftsman brand was sold to "Stanley Black & Decker". Might be interesting to watch and see the quality level of different tools in coming years. Will the Craftsman name continue or on a few items.
The broad lines of Stanley Black & Decker should be able to handle the number of products.
