Nice box for the price.

I have the black one and have been suggesting it in the harbor freight tools that don't suck. It's on sale with coupon for 99.00 awesome tool box.

My dad has one of their large boxes, and it seems fine.

Another option if you have time is to watch Craislist...I bought both my Craftsman that way.

I was pretty surprised by the quality of them. The drawers work pretty well when loaded with tools.

I have, and have owned the cheapos from elsewhere, and they suck dingo's kidneys.
To me this doesn'tlook any better.

I'd really like an old school Kennedy.

My dad's has probably 50#s of wrenches in some of the drawers (think a 3/4" drive set) and they roll just fine...

Did you get those fancy drawer liners for it? Stops the stuff from sliding around inside...

They come with the liners hellion. And Joe it's not the same as others. I hate my craftsman box if I was to compare between the two. They are really well built. Worth the full price even.

I followed my dad's example and use carpet for the drawer liner. A few month and the tools make themselves a dent in the nap and it's easy to see where they go afterwards.

It is awesome.
I'll add a review to these.
http://www.harborfreight.com/five-dr...art-95272.html

The bottom fits my welder perfect. I got my helmet, gloves, files, brushes, apron,... down on the bottom.

The HF 18" Magnet Tool Holders (if screw holes are drilled out, fit the bolts on the sides of the cart. No drilling into the cart, just open up the holes on the magnet back channel thing.
The bolt hole spacing is the same. Didn't buy yet, but I will get two of them.

HF has these little translucent tackle box looking things that fit nicely into the two small drawers on the left. These hold my little sockets. One for Metric, One for SAE. Wrenches fit around the sides of the boxes.

The rest will get sorted out, it is kinda stuffed right now. Definitely glad I got the bigger one.

If in doubt, listen to this guy. What could he say? It's a Home Run!!! He loves it!!!


---------- Post added at 03:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:52 PM ----------

I think I want to take the interlock off. I think I would like to be able to open the drawers with the top closed. I image I will have stuff on top of the cart most of the time.

Oh ya, it needs this too.

Assembled Easily. Loosely put together. Square, tighten, repeat. Start at the bottom and tighten the top last.

Most of this stuff won't stay here. I want a semi clear work space here.
I want some markers, pencils, paper, caliper, square, protractor, battery charger,.... We'll see what this ends up as?
