Yep The carpenters wood glue is Elmer's colored yellow, why I dunno because it dries clear - go figure.<br><br>Skill, Black & Decker and Craftsman - all same for the consumer market - industrial line is Kodiak I believe which is into the real heavy tools. Plus I think Porter Cable is in that soup as-well ?<br><br>Panasonic well I used a few of them drills kinda decent but for some reason my mind went looking for the speakers or a radio feature. Just to funky<br><br>Porter Cable routers are really nice, in fact I have 2. A plunge Router and a Laminate Trimer and yes thats about the best that Porter Cable has to offer - Makita comes second and Dewalt come in 3rd only because the design is to light and causes "chatter" <br><br>
Yeah..in the end, it just depends what you're doing. <br><br>The cheapies all work good for home use. A lot of power tools are overrated, and one brand name doesn't even come close to covering all the bases. <br><br>It's like air nailers..so much junk out there. <br><br>
Right<br>A good tradesman should have a variety of different branded tools - the best ones for a particular job.<br><br>Now I let a guy talk me into hireling him because he was a "Journeyman" yada yada. The first day on the job he shows up with all Craftsmans tools - LOL. I gave the guy a break and payed him journeyman's wage for a week before I busted him back to labor wages. The Craftmans tools lasted only for 4 months in industrial use.<br><br><br>
Yeah...Craftsman power tools taint for job sites. Those are for Grandma to hang picture frames with. <br><br>Sears does sell some decent stuff under the Craftsman name (they don't make any of it, of course.) Decent compressors, decent mechanics tools, passable hand tools and some of the bench power tools are okay. We've got a Crafstman Radial Arm saw that's been around 20 years. <br><br>Oh..nice tool chests too. <br><br>
Right Sears don't make shiit they are re-branded <br>The mechanics tools are really the only best thing that Sears have and very close to Snap-On quality and I think they are the same ??<br><br>I think that tool technology blew by many and Craftsman/Skill/Black&Decker as a whole are just playing catch up<br><br>
I believe SK makes Craftsman mechanics tools. Once upon a time, I think Sears had a tool plant near Chicago, but I think they sold it. <br><br>Apparently Sears bids out all their contracts once a year to different manufacturers. It could be one company one year, somebody else the next. <br><br>

I think B&D makes the low-end power tools for Sears. I also think some of the Craftsman pro line is rebranded DeWalt. <br><br>By the way, don't tell anybody, but Black And Decker is the parent company of DeWalt <br><br>
