Default Snap On Roll Cab

I came across a Snap On KRA3027 Roll cab for NZ$100, only thing is it has a problem with the top drawer slide.

It is fitted with the friction slides and has worn the bottom out of the slide channel attached to the roll cab body, so when you pull the drawer over 1/2 way out the drawer drops.

Would this be covered under warranty? If not I'm wondering if it could be converted to roller slides, if this can be done does anyone know which roller slides would fit the box?

Cannot be easily converted, but I have had friction slides warranted.

Talk to your snap on dealer to see what they say. Since you bought the box 2nd and this is going to be such an expensive warranty, kinda doubt they will cover it.

Your options are to:

a.) Weld up the current runners
b.) Have a runner channel made by a sheetmetal shop, remove the old and weld* the new one on (requires accurate placement)
c.) Convert that drawer to ball bearing which may not be to difficult*, but again accurate placement is critical to prevent binding.

*Are those slide channels/runners welded to the chassis or do they snap in the multitude of cutouts on the inner panel?

This is a different and much more serious problem. While I heard about them replacing a box that this has happened to, it is a much different problem than just a pair of <$10 sheet metal slides.

The drawer needs to be welded or replaced (replaced is more like it). The slides are warrantied for life, However, technically you have to be the original owner. It's really up to your Snap On dealer, if he's cool, he'll get you new ones for free (if they're still made). I doubt they would be able to replace the drawer, you'll probably have to find another box and cannibalize it.
