Craftsman USA Punch and Chisel Set in Tool Roll

Over at Harry Epstein Co, I was checking out their NOS (new old stock) Craftsman tools when I came across this 20pc punch and chisel set.

I have a couple of Craftsman punches in my tool box, and maybe a chisel or two, and regret not buying more of them when I had the chance. I don’t recall who the OEM was, but they’re made in the USA, and they’ve held up well for me.

Even with shipping, the set is less expensive than the other USA-made punch sets I can find online at the moment. Seems like a very good buy, if you can use most of the punches or chisels in your work.

A word of warning – Harry Epstein’s tool catalog is a fantastic collection of new and older tools. If you don’t have time to browse around, go back when you do. For instance, who knew that you could buy Korean War-era punches?
