Many of the Sears tools are also made by B&D. As are a number of Snap-On power
and pneumatic tools.

Tools source update:
Many of Sears stationary power tools are now made by Ryobi. This includes
the Craftsman table saws, and other woodworking tools. Formerly, the Sears
power tools were made by Emerson Electric Company, St. Louis, MO., but they
lost their Sears contract.
So, Emerson went to Home Depot and offered updated versions of the old Sears
tools as the new "Ridgid" line of stationary power tools. Of course, Ridgid
is an old-line name, formerly know for their professional pipe threading
equipment. Emerson has owned Ridgid for a long time now.
BTW, Emerson Electric once also owned Skil, then sold first part of it to
Bosch, finally all of it to Bosch.
