I am predicting a long thread of mock Chinese names,
to follow. There is an old Chinese man who runs a
shop. Can't remember his phone number, but you should
be able to find him in the phone book.
His name is Nofu Kin Wei.
On a more serious note, sometimes other brand of item
can be made to work. Hoover attachments for a Bissel
carpet cleaner, for example. I've been looking for a
new tip for my 1994 Kenmore carpet cleaner, that I
think was made by Bissel. Just impossible to find.
A friend of mine borrowed it, and stepped on the
ancient, brittle plastic tip and broke it beyond
repair. I did find part of such a tip on Ebay, and

The local TruValue store used to get parts for tools. I got parts
for my DeWalt drill and maybe a Makita drill also from them. I have no
idea if they could get stuff that would fit Craftsman.
It's an Ace Hardware now so who knows what they would or could do.
Sears products often have a model number in the form of 123.45678. The
first digits represent the source or manufacturer. See
<http://sears.pammar.net/maker.html or <http://vintagemachinery.org/craftsman/manufacturers.aspx .
If you can find a part number at the Sears PartsDirect website, it is
usually the manufacturer's part number. It is possible a part
discontinued by Sears, is still available from other sources.
I got the part number right off the SALES side of the sears website.
Plugged it into the Parts side and nothing found. The guy at the
store claims the guys at the parts side have a different index and
might be able to look it up.
