Recently I had a hankering to get a new toolbox for work. I have/had a bunch of cheaper, dented in shipping, boxes and service cart.
I previously had a Blue Point service cart. I purchased it as a damaged item from Snap-On. It was dented on the bottom pan. Cart still rolled fine, stood fine. I sold the cart this past Sunday. Put it on CL Sunday morning, was sold by 1pm the same day.
I still currently have the basic craftsman 2 tier setup, the big bottom drawer has gotten jacked up from to much weight in it.
I also still currently have a Snap-On side cabinet that is very old, no working lock that I bought off CL quite awhile ago now. I just throw junk it it. I like it and will be keeping it.
So...I began to look at Snap-On boxes.
Was looking at a $2300.00 Heritage Roll Cab
Then I got to looking at other stores and what they had. Lowes, Horror Frieght, etc...nothing exciting.
Then I looked around on CL. Came upon an ad for a box exactly like a tech had at the first shop I worked at. Guy wanted $300 for it and I remembered that the tech mentioned earlier had said he picked his box from Sam's Club, went to the website to price compare.
A new one? $399.98
Thats right...$400.00 (half the price of the big box from Horror Feight)
Here is a pic of the totally assembled box/bench. It is not mine.
I feel like I can review a bit since I've seen this box in action previously. Will go into more detail after a bit of use.
-You must put the box together yourself. I'm still in the process of getting mine put together. I have the big part done, I'm down getting the drawers together. Everything has gone together well so far. Many little screws, but no fitment issues. Bolts/screws are a little cheap, but ehh.
-Purchase of box/bench comes with drawer liners included (a nice feature I found as I blew all my $$ on the box, nothing left for liners)
-Highly enjoy the hardwood top. I will end up covering it somehow. Maybe a large sheet of that clear plastic to proctect the top.
-Very sturdy box/bench. Have it upright on the casters and it has a good solid feel to it.
