Craftsman makes a wide variety of tools and equipment for everyday use. After a while, these tools can wear down. Rather than tossing your tools out, you can often restore them to like-new condition with a basic part replacement.

In some cases, a carburetor repair kit can do the trick. If the head won't stop spinning on your line trimmer when you release the trigger, the problem is probably a bad clutch.
Circular saw—Craftsman is known for their circular saws. If yours won't run, check the motor brushes for visible signs of damage. These can wear out, inhibiting the operation of the saw.
