    thay came in today at work and had a giant penske rental truck full of boxes and all were half off the list price plus 10% free tools of the value of the box.

    the one i was looking at was 8032.99 and 45.11 a week for 5 years.

    nice box but just couldnt swing it. i like to not half to plan to buy underware when thay are needed. as if i got this box i would have been streached so thin it would have killed me .

    oh well we can dream cant we. :rolleyes:

    Dang! My wife would kill me. She gets mad when I ring up tools on the $300 sears card! I couldn't imagine what would happen if I had a $10k tool card. Everything I bought with it would end up for sale... and the authorities would never find my remains. It would be nice to have a new, good roll away tool box though.:rolleyes:

    BIG toolbox!!

    A guy I know was looking for a "BIG" toolbox to replace his aging Snap-On one,that would hold ALL his tools in one roll around box..the Snap-On guy brought 3 larger used toolboxes over a months time,and he sent all of them back--"too small" he said!..(they were 6' long,and about 3' high!)..:eek1:

    Last saturday I stopped at his shop..he says "check out my new toolbox"...my eyes almost popped!:eek1: ..

    It's a "Cornwall Patriot"...frigging thing is about 8' long,and its as tall as I am,and I'm 6'4"!...it looks big enough to park a Geo in it!..AWESOME toolbox,but I'm glad its not ME paying for it!..he didn't say what he paid,but the ones he sent back were "good used" Snap-On ones,and they were in the 5000 dollar range!:yikes: ..yipe!..hope he got a good "trade in" on his old one!..:crazy:

    yeah, if I had to do it all over, I woulda went with the biggest triple-bank roll cab Snappy makes... the 29" deep one...

    As it is, the only thing I can expand with at this point is another side locker for the other side... Can't forsee needing that for quite some time tho.. I'm full, but don't really need much else (says the tool-addict mechanic :wink1: )...

    Really dig the cubes you get with the side lockers, just not liking working ONLY out of that at the moment... :doah: :( :crazy: :haha:
