Re: What's a fair price for this mid box, cleaned up?

OK, thought it might be something special. I think I'll just clean it up and stick it between my top and bottom boxes. Thanks for the replies!

Cool What's a fair price for this mid box, cleaned up?

I've had this laying around forever. Thought about giving it a light restoration. Basically, blast and paint. It doesn't have a lock but the drawers slide great. What do you think I could get for...

Cool Re: Craftsman 150 drill press head unit disassembly (pic heavy).

Outstanding! Looks to be in great shape! Just make sure there's not any wobble in the spindle. You can probably just give it a light restoration, like I did. Doesn't look abused, at all. Now...

Cool Re: Vintage Snap On to Restore or just Junk it?

Personally, I think you should just junk the original top box and the bottom box, as well. They're garbage! You've caught me on a good day and I'm feeling in a generous mood. I'm just over the...

Cool Re: A couple of decent CL ads in SF Bay Area, CA.

Cool Looking to get a Matco MT2836 air ratchet. Opinions please.

Need opinions on a Matco MT2836 3/8" air ratchet. Apparently, they retail in the high $200's. I can get this one for $100 and that's good 'cause I don't want to spend any more than that on an air...
