That make sense?
Like buying a shirt that has the red square next to the white square, and the initials T.H. The T.H. stands for Thomas Hillinger instead of Tommy Hilfiger.
The HF CP stands for central Pneumatic. Chicago tools is a supplier of Cummings industrial tools ( The cummings truck load sales ), which also does some work with HF. this is what I was told anyway. They are all identicle in designe/ style also.
