    Ok boys and girls... I know eveyone that has one, is pretty proud of their box of steel... let's see some pics from you guys?

    I have about 100 or so stickers I have to apply from PRI last year to my boxes before I post pics

    Mine is nothing special. When I bought the 924s I bought a 15 piece 3/8 socket set and between that and a handful of wrenches I could take the whole car apart.

    Bought this two years ago.



    Usually when I’m doing something that requires tools, just about all of them end up scattered all over the place and the tool box is empty. so the box is irrelevant.

    I do need a larger one to put some of my specialized tools into though. Someday i'll have a giant chest, just can't justify that right now.

    I had that same craftsman box for years... outgrew it and ended up with multiple toolboxes and milk crates full of jackstands and other stuff. I had to be able to carry the stuff out into the driveway. I was so happy when I finally got a chest a few years ago. I'll snap a pic when I get home.

    Pete, make with the pic! Use it as a before.

    My main box:



    Also still have the original Craftsman roller I started with, both in use. I'm looking to sell this one and upgrade to a Snappy real soon. This doesn't hold a lot of my special tools and supplies, which are distributed around the garage and some of the better ones are in the house (like my corner balance scales)

    1964 craftsman was my dads every drawer is full of tools from about the same vintage from SK craftsman snap on and some newer stuff that ive added over the years. To be honest I would never buy a new Craftsman tool today if I had to.

    Is that the Kobalt box w the Pioneer deck & the fridge?? Out of curiousity, when will you be looking to sell, and how much will you want? I want that box, but it was just overpriced to me for what it was. I'm hoping to be able to finally purchase a new box with tax dollars... Currently I have two of these...



    One of which has a 4 drawer topper... And its just not big enough / strong enough... I'm also debating the US General setup from Harbor Freight... With coupons, this entire setup pictured here can be had for under a grand, and garagejournal.com has threads of guys that can't get over the quality for the price...

    Ideally id liketo see $1200the for it and yes, that's the one. The fridge is brand new never even plugged in. The big problem with ALL the cheaper boxes is the depth. This is the first and only 24in deep in that market.

    Some of the boxes at Harbor Freight seem well-built, especially at the price. If I were a pro and spent all day slamming the drawers I'd probably look for something a little higher-spec, but I can't imagine it won't survive home use just fine.

    This. Holy shit how do you sit there in the corner like that for hours?? You can't even rotate your chair or move your legs around. That would drive me nuts.
