My son is kinda a "tool snob", only buys USA made, known brands, mostly flea market and garage sale finds. He needed a larger tool box and reluctantly researched the Harbor Freight ones. Lots of great reviews on tool forums, so he bought one. He's had it for several years and is very pleased with it. Yours should serve your needs for a long time!

I still have the Craftsman base and top chest I have had for over 40 years. When my son got interested in mechanics I started adding to my tools. Needing more space I bought an intermediate Craftsman cabinet, which filled my needs, for a while.
I was again in need of a larger cabinet and Tractor Supply had a pretty good price on a 52" cabinet and top chest. So I went to look it over and was going to buy it and the person helping me said they offered additional% off (think it was 15 or 20%) if you open a TSC charge account, so why not? Upon inspection of the cabinets I noticed a small wrinkle in the back corner. Asked for another one that didn't have that issue, was told it was the only one they had, do he got the manager. She apologized and offered an additional 25% off for that cabinet. Well, again, why not?? When I was checking out the cashier asked if the 25% was for both pieces, the guy helping me said she didn't say, so sure. Forgot where I ended up in but was very happy! Paid off TSC card the first bill and haven't even noticed the imperfection. Been a great box and I retired the Craftsman set to the garage with basic tools so I don't have to go to the barn shop..

David,
Flea markets, Swap Meets, etc are all great places to pick up good deals on older well made tools.
Unfortunately this year was a total bust around here, all of them were cancelled.
Tag Sales are hit or miss. I did pick up two (2) Snap-On phillips screw drivers and four (4) Blue Point tappet wrenches at a tag sale a few years ago - all for $10!

My son Aron - the mechanic - is looking at a Snap-On box that the rolling dealer sold new to a guy, took it back a week later in trade for a bigger box, and is now selling for half original price. Still expensive, but $3,500 vs $7,000 is not bad for a brand new box. Prior to graduating from UTI, he took advantage of the 50% discount at the Snap-On store on campus along with 12 mo. no interest financing to get his starter set of tools.

I had a 26" craftsman tool boxes top & bottom. I out grew it. So I went to HF got a 44" top & bottom. Organized to drawers plus labeled each drawer. Then I bought a tall box to put all my battery tools in plus all my blade. All red. Like everyone has said its a personnel preference. I gave the old tool box to may son.

And 4 or 5 more the size of the smaller gray tool box. They all have rollers, but we don't move them.

Pays to have a son who like to buy tools. The large red tool box is a replacement. Life time warranty. Son wore the first one out at work.

It's really nice having a decent sized shop and a lot of tools. Current project is replacing the catalytic converters on an 03 Expedition. The do it yourself savings is not quite $1000- for 4 or 5 hours work. The auto mechanic's shop quoted a bit over $1400- to replace both sides.

Being in the right place at the right time always helps. Most of the time, those little imperfections you haggle with the manager in the store are long forgotten when you’re back home.

Snagged these (top and bottom) from Harbor Freight around Thanksgiving for $400 total.
I had been watching the prices for a while and jumped when the sales happened.
16 total drawers. Now I need someone to organize and label them.

Wonder where they got the photo.

That is one very nice tool chest. Would expect the listed price to be over $5999.-

All they have to do is get 1000 rich Americans to send them $59.99 and they'll have a very nice Christmas! What tool box?
