    probably seperate the slides... if they're ball bearing, extend them all the way out and look for a simple plastic release lever, if not, you have to take the drawer off the slides

    look for screws on the inside of the drawer. Our old boxes were like that, screwed and hooked in between the rails. Never taken apart a Mac box to say for sure though.

    easiest way to disassemble a mac box is to trade it in on a snap-on

    Mac comes in on Tuesday and Friday, Cornwell on Monday and Thursday and Matco comes in on Wednesday. No Snap On for nearly 2 years. :frown1:
    But when he did he was in twice a week as well.

    How many guys you have that they come in twice a week? or 2 shifts? I go to 2 shops twice a week, and that is first and second shift, that is all.

    We have 3 shifts, Day (queen) shift, swing and weekend shift.
    But as we work 4 10's guys are spread out all over the place.
    Some work mon - thur, then the tue - fri group. Weekend shift is fri- mon, then the guys working sun- wed, some work sat - tue. :doah:

    They all have good sized routes, Portland is a pretty big area.
    I suppose ya could call it good customer service.

    On the inside of the drawer towards the front you will see the slide latch. take a screw driver and pry out on the bottom of the slide and press down on the top. The slide will pop out.
    To get the slide out of the box you pry on the top and push up.
    I hope that makes sence to ya.

    i just dont see how that's "good customer service"... it's insanity.. i work my route about 65-70 hrs a week, it's just not possible, oh and we have 6 s/o trucks here for one mac and two matco, the cornwell guy just quit after 10 months...

    Between the Leasing dept, service dept, and the detail dept there are over 30 techs.
    All working different shifts. And all of them spending money on the trucks.
    So to cover everybody they have to come in twice a week.
    Matco only comes in once a week, he's probably missing out on 15 customers.

    We are not the only shop they double stop at either.
