Anyway, I just purchased a bottom chest from Sears on the Internet and I will pick it up today. This is going to be the tool you used the most and if it is not comfortable in your hand when you are putting a lot of force on it, it will let you know for the next 3 days. Twice the box my almost 30yo MAC box is (top of the line at the time) and cost 1/3 of what it did back then. I moved all my sockets & wrenches to the cart when I got it to clear out my Craftsman box a lot, and I have no complaints. The last Craftsman tool chest we acquired was the Rolling Project Center from their QuietGlide line.
A telescopic handle is fitted and the wheels measure at 7”, molded from rubber and exhibiting their lost lasting quality from the get-go. Wheels are available to handle concrete shop floors with debris, chemicals, oil, or any special needs you may have. Remember if it has a lifetime warranty it can always be traded in as long as they still make it. But, before you do this I would suggest attempting to clean the tool up and if it needs minor repairs to do that. The Craftsman Modular Tool Chest Storage System has many features and benefits:Deep drawer with included removable dividers – ideal for power tools and bulky hand tools.
We were looking at bigger boxes and the hf was the only one to use double slides on bigger drawers, had bigger wheels and some other stuff. I’ve heard of some crooks stealing an entire tool chest with all the tools still inside of it. The drawers should have some kind of liner in them to help protect the tools and the storage unit from getting too banged up. I have had my Craftsman top and bottom box for 30 years, used them professionally for 6 years. You can also find tool chests with features that include built-in power strips and lighting. After the draws have been removed lay the unit on it’s back I found it easier to reach all four wheels that way.
I’ve got the Bottom box with two side boxes attached to it. (TractorSupply top box, same dimentions) 3 years old, solid as the Pound. You have tools for all types of tasks, and the Craftsman toolboxes help keep your tools protected and organized. Offered was an organized structure with socket holders, trays for parts, wrench racks, and special tool holders. Another feature that cannot be lacking is a lock, ensure your prospective new tool chest can lock-down your tools. The big boxes from the tool trucks are nice but 5-10k for one is way too much at this point in my career.
Whether you go with a large rolling steel chest to a compact plastic tote, there is no excuse for not keeping your tools safe, secure, and ready for use.

On the flip side while my harbor freight box may be the cheapest box in the shop (lots of cornwell/matco/snapon/mac and 2 craftsmen) Ive yet to have a problem with it. When the time came to move from our last loft, the day the movers arrived, we felt a shimmy and then a shake and all of a sudden wheels were falling off and screws were all over the ground. The Husky heavy duty 10 drawer cabinet, is a very good organizational tool chest. Sorry, but I have nothin but good to say about their tool boxes, wish it was true with all the other stuff.
Read the directions when you get the tool they are your best bet to keeping it proper and working. These items were shown at the Craftsmanship Museum in February, 2015 when Mr. Robertson was here to accept his award as craftsman of the year. At a prior job we needed to keep everything in its exact place so we cut foam shapes for each tool. Now, instead of searching for a particular tool, I know that everything is stored in my Kobalt stainless steel tool cabinet that I bought at Lowes home improvement store.

Some additional photos of the toolboxes taken at the February 28th, 2015 presentation of Bill’s Craftsman of the Year award in Carlsbad, CA. The second photo shows the 1/8 scale toolbox on the right and a 1/12 scale gentleman’s tool chest on the left along with some of the tools from the box. I checked out that tool box at the local HF store yesteday and I was impressed with it. It is sturdy and I liked how smooth and strong the drawer slides are. This great tool center is backed by a three-year limited warranty, although given the quality, little is likely to go wrong.
If you get a weird sized filter plastic cap ask another mechanic and assess how many are going to be showing up if it is a Datsun unless he is a regular don’t buy the tool just figure it out. Everything about the box was great except they cheap out on the wheel hardware. And with a Sears oil change from their auto center you’ll drive off good as new! Doing this is a great way to keep any tools that are going into storage in good/like new condition.
