I have been researching CNC Router Kits lately, trying to see if it would be worth it for me to automate some of the work I have been doing. One thing that bothers me with what I have been seeing is the way the drive mechanisms are exposed to dust and debris.

Craftsman has been in trouble for a number of years, I think mostly due to the fact that Sears itself has been having problems. Today, though, Stanley Black & Decker completed their purchase of the Craftsman brand from Sears Holdings Corporation, and Craftsman will have a second chance as a maker of American tools.
