Default Let's see your toolbox.

I had outgrown my old toolbox and wanted something a little "different" for my garage remodelling project. I'm a Ford guy so this one fit the bill for me. Show us what you've got.

Default Another Craftsman combo

I could probably justify a bit more capacity, but this one has served me well for many years now...........

The bottom drawer of the top cabinet was autographed by Tim Allen at the Meadowbrook Historic Races several years ago < RRR >

Believe it or not, NAPA. It's been advertised in their last two quarterly wholesale fliers. I've also seen the same box, but with different graphics, on the MAC website. It's really good quality and also comes with a side cabinet that is currently mounted on my other rollaway due to space constraints.

Satatic,

Nothing wrong with what you've got.

I have some Stack-On boxes as well. I have to say that I am very happy with the quality. Everything that I've seen in stores since seems flimsy in comparison. For the record, I'm talking Costco, Canadian Tire, and Sears.

The Stack-On units I have came with nice roller bearings on the drawers and overall have a nice heavy sold feel to them.

I was looking at nice toolboxes on ebay and stumbled onto this... looks amazing and they are in Tampa. My wife would kill me in my sleep if I bought that though.

more of the same style...

They sell very similar stuff at Costco up here in Seattle for not a huge amount of money. I think the equivalent to that model costs about $1200 there.

edit: I hadn't bothered to look at the link. Gee, $1275. I guess Costco's less, but no Harley logo.

They just give you a big harley sticker to put on the toolbox. I think they do that just so people think it is a harley toolbox when it isn't. They also give you a snap-on screwdriver with the toolbox. Smart way of cross advertising to people searching for "snap-on" though.

Sam's club also has a stainless steel one very similar to the first link. Seemed very high quality not to sure of the price.
