Thread: Roll-around tool chests?

    My Craftsman sounds like Jim's but it is 30 years old and going strong. Jim is right about the lower storage area. In my case this box is primarily a mechanics tool box rather than a wood workers box.

    I have an older Craftsman top and bottom. Decent box. And an old Master Mechanic (cant remember where it came from). Cheap box and the handles pull off. And another one I have is a off brand cheap box. And have owned some others.

    But my recommendation is the Harbor Freight/US General box. At least the two larger boxes I have are very well made. Loaded up they will be heavy! But large castors although one of them I took the casters off to lower it because it is installed in a permanent location and I put a woodworking top over it.

    Personally I could never see the justification of the Snap on or Matco prices. They come up all the time on CL used, but still expensive - which makes me think a lot of people buy into them then get out of them later when they realize the value really was there for the $.
