And you thought Stanley was for Just Homeowners


When you think Stanley you usually think hammers or pliers that you can get at a local hardware store.  Well turns out Stanley makes some specialty industrial tools also. Like the ones on the Ford Taurus assembly line here in Chicago.  Check out this video where Mike Rowe shows you the tools in action.


    • Stanley/Black & Decker owns Proto, Mac Tools, Blackhawk, Expert, Facom, Virax, and though they don’t use it currently, the rights to the New Britain name. They own Dewalt, Porter Cable, and Bostich too. They also owned the Husky brand before it was sold to Home Depot and many Husky tools are still produced by Stanley under contract.

      Stanley makes great tools and not so great tools, just depends on what you’re looking to use them for and how much you’re willing to pay.

  1. I live a few miles from the Torrence facility here at Chi-Town. Good to see good American company using US tools. Laters TIA
