     We only have three or so Sears stores remaining In the Phoenix area.  In 
my shop you can look in any direction or open almost any drawer and find a 
Craftsman machine or tool, and occasionally I'll be wearing a shirt with a 
Craftsman tag on it.  

     Just this past Tuesday I came across a 1950s vintage Craftsman 1/2 HP 
shaper for just $35.  It was the type with the cast iron top with the 
rectangular holes, which was considered to be an accident waiting to happen.  I 
would have bought it but I have a much nicer one from Grizzly.
