Where are the air compressors made??????

Bill says...

Pat, if the question is, where are the Craftsman air compressors made, I believe that they are made for Craftsman by one of the major compressor suppliers in North America.

And, that major compressor supplier will likely have parts and assembly of those air compressors farmed out to a lower cost producing country.

To be specific as to the actual manufacturer of your Craftsman air compressor, you will have to start with the year it was made. I believe, as years go buy, Craftsman, like other compressor sellers, get their compressors from the lowest cost source, and that compressor manufacturer will change over time depending on who bids the lowest when they go out for tender.

Where Sears compressers are made?
by: Anonymous

Sears like too many company's use China.

Sears has used China for Craftmans tool and the list goes one.

They all so use South Korea, Mexico!!!

I just etc...a new Dell computer, took the cover off, had China tags on components...

General Motors....has most all their engines made in China!!!

In the early 80's to 90's The people in Mexico was only making $.75 cents per hour.

Bill you can edit this if you want to. But all true facts....I hosted students from all over the world,

A product may say made in the USA, yet not made here.

Was looking for one made in the US but it looks like Sears has disappointed me...will keep looking.

Thank you for your help.



I have a page on this site on which I invite all manufacturers of air compressors in North America to list the models that are made here, not just assembled from imported parts, but actually made here. So far, some months later, not one manufacturer has posted their products. I think this says it all.

Help replacing tank fill tube craftsman 15 gal

by Mark
(Oakley ca.)


My upright craftsman 15 gallon compressor was not filling and I found the filler tube was broken at the tank coupler where it connects to the check valve. - I ordered a new filler tube and coupler but I do not understand how proper mating is done with this design. I expected the tube would have a flange at the end which the coupler would catch and create a good mate as it is threaded into the check valve - like a gas fitting. Instead, the filler tube is straight and just fits throught the coupler where it just can slide in and out. Do I apply a sealand - or do the 2 dissimilar metals form a bond when heat is generated during operation - I know it sound a bit far fetched...?? Appreciate any help -
