Craftsman Woodworking Tools
(Sears, Roebuck Co.)

Craftsman Table Saw 1952For years the Craftsman brand of woodworking tools, sold by the Sears, Roebuck and Co., have been used by amateur and professional woodworkers alike and had a reputation as a good quality American made tool.

Craftsman is the top of the line brand name for Sears tools. They've had other lesser quality brands including Champion, Dunlap, and Fulton. These were less expensive tools and not the quality of the tools sold under the Craftsman brand.

Sears has had many other companies manufacture tools and machines under the Craftsman Brand. Once when I was working on a Craftsman router, I discovered that it was actually made by the Singer Sewing Machine Company. This was back in the day when Craftsman routers were all metal, not plastic. It was a great little router and I've still got it.

Other companies that have manufactured Craftsman tools include American Machine & Tool Co., Atlas Press, Belsaw Machinery, Central Specialtiy (akd King Sealy), Emerson Electric, Parks Woodworking Co., Walker Turner Co. just to name a few. The companies that manufactured tools for Craftsman can be indentified by the first three digits of the tools model number. Most Craftsman table saws with model numbers that begin with 113.xxx for example, were made by the Emerson Electric Company.

This Craftsman Woodworking Tools section features many of the vintage Craftsman tools from the 1930's through those sold in Sears stores today.
