    So I was looking for a tool chest on craigslist and came across the harbor freight US general red roll around one for $200. I can't find this certain model on their web site but I'm sure its relatively close to $200. It was a short one line description and said

    so I texted him and confirmed it came with the tools and he said yes.

    It had two sets of the craftsman ratchet wrenches! I looked them up and they're nearly 50 for each set. That plus all the other tools, some harbor freight and other random ones...even got another torque wrench

    I think I got a good deal

    Sounds like a good deal, but I wouldn't expect them to last as long as the more expensive tools. My brother (whose a mechanic) has some HF specials and loves them but he mostly has snap-on stuff that is practically bulletproof. If your not a mechanic and just a weekend moding type person I say jump on that!!

    I thought craftsman was a good brand :notsure: (the ratchet wrenches are all craftsman, not HF. Those are what I was most excited about)

    That's a good deal for all those tools. Not sure about the tool box but hey, it's almost free with those wrenches and other tools.

    I agree..I wasn't planning on getting a HF tool chest, but the tools made it a done deal..I could always resell the chest and get a better one if I need more room

    There is nothing wrong with the heavy duty tool boxes that HF sells. The ones that I've looked at had drawers with roller bearing.

    Compare them to the ones that are sold at Sears, Lowes, Home Depot and I think that you will like the value that they represent.
