Question: Whatever happened to Record Tools?

I know that Irwin bought Record tools, but if you go to the website, you can't find Record stuff anywhere. Did they sell the tooling to someone else, or just kill it altogether, anybody know? Thanks.

You need to write Rubbermaid and ask them why they aren't allowing Record to be brought into this country now that they own American Tool Co. (Vise-grip (tm) and picked up the distributorship rights that they aren't exercising. They now have Marples as well so there are more problems coming.

For the most part, it's the same products etc from the old labels but the labels have been changed and consolidated and focused for different market areas etc. It's just that the products and brands are all mixed up in a jumble so you don't know what to look for (and won't recognize it when you find it. -- it's just the same magical whiz-bang MBA horse**** that's led to so many other companies going belly up in the name of uh, ... yeah, that thing ... no, the one over there behind the ...).
