Stanley’s new sweetheart isn’t just its block plane, but a Maryland-based maker of power tools. Yesterday, Stanley Works announced that it would buy Black & Decker. This deal will create “the largest U.S. tool maker.” Stanley Works includes such brands as FatMax, Bostitch and Mac Tools.

Black & Decker includes a whole slew of names such as Porter-Cable, Delta, DeWalt and Kwikset. Does this mean there’s a FatMax Xtreme Unisaw around the corner? What other bizarre progeny can come out of this union? Post your comments below and the commenter with the funniest combination wins a set of Porter-Cable trading cards and a Porter-Cable pen with USB stick. These things could be collectors items someday.

The new FatMax Xtreme Unisaw?
