Stanley to buy Black & Decker


I would think they would be better off not associating the two names together. It is my humble opinion that while both names are associated with lower end homeowner based products, I believe Stanley has a slight edge over Black&Decker as far as reputation goes.

As I said, that is just my opinion and do not purchase either product with the Stanley or Black&Decker brand.

I do like some of the other lines such as Delta, Porter Cable and DeWalt, just to name a few.

and to be honest, they have always made a decent plane.

From looking at Stanley's website, it would appear Stanley wanted B&D for their name brands, specifically the power tools, I would think. That appears to be their shortfall in their product line.
