History

Founded in 1927, Craftsman began by producing axes, chisels, files, handsaws, hack saws, hatchets, hammers, planes and tap and die sets. The company continued to expand its offering of hand tools, and in 1966 introduced the first ratchet wrench with a quick and easy push-button socket release. With gear/pawl design, it was a tremendous breakthrough in ratchet design that is commonplace today.

In 1991, Craftsman Professional screwdrivers debuted with high strength, tool-steel blades with grit blasted tips to reduce chipping and tip failure and ergonomically designed handles that generate up to 40% greater torque than conventional screwdrivers. The next year, Craftsman introduced a new plating process for its wrenches, pliers, sockets and screwdrivers that is environmentally friendly and 50% more rust resistant than nickel chrome finished tools.

To this day, Craftsman is constantly developing new, innovative features to help make you more efficient and productive on the job. The company puts every tool through a battery of endurance and mechanical tests.
