I found this at an estate sale in the spring of 2012. The thing that struck me about it is that the Craftsman name is cast into the base in raised letters and highlighted with silver paint. There are no other tags and no serial or model number.After posting picyures on OWWM.org, it was identified as being manufactured by Herberts in the early 1930'S. It can be found in a 1933 catalog here.
