Several readers wrote in, informing me that CPO Tools is not selling Milwaukee tools right now.
CPO Tools, an online retailer, has a message on their website where there used to be Milwaukee Tool product listings:
Please note: We are not carrying Milwaukee products at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Every reader who wrote in about this expressed interest and curiosity as to what happened and why. I too am curious, but there’s no public story.
There are any number of possible reasons and explanations as to what happened, but the “at this time” language suggests at least the hope of this being a temporary situation.
