Question: When did Craftsman start to use model numbers?

Craftsman tools began carrying model number markings sometime between 1968 and 1970, based on observations of ratchets with patent pending markings. For simplicity we will use dates up to 1969 for tools without model numbers, and dates 1970 or later for tools with model numbers.

Is Craftsman being discontinued?

Its not Sears anymore, Stanley says in lawsuit. Stanley Black & Decker bought the Craftsman brand from Sears Holdings Corp. in 2017. The deal, valued at $900 million, let both brands continue making and selling products under the Craftsman label.
