    Sears has a cheap but some what large box for about $250ish. Its a top, bottem, and middle chest. Ive got a smallish box that is full now, and I plan on buying a roll cart in the next month or 2 so I can unload it a little bit.

    Do you drive fork trucks into your toolbox often?

    Do you push your toolbox around an immense shop, approx 5 miles or more every day?

    Do you participate in activities that tend to scratch your toolbox often?

    How important to you is the ability to use magnets to adhere pictures of your family to your toolbox?

    If hanging those pictures is important to you, would you ever consider using another technology besides magnets, such as tape?

    Lastly, do you own a calipers?

    CSPS stainless box.....

    Get one for yourself, and if you work in a shop...one for everyone else.

    That way.... they can't stick their retarded pictures all over their box of some butt fugly brod with her rolls spilling out of her nightie, that he thinks is just the hottest....:haha:


    Regardless, make sure you mic the sides and be carefull with it, the casters might go crashing through the bottom of it if you just look at it funny....

    Oh and I work for Nasa and built the Appolo 17 shuttle with a hang over and I'm just awesome.... so I know a crap load about tool boxes....:haha:

    make sure you mic the sides... and definately reinforce the bottom

    and if you want a box for 600 bucks, your best bet is craftsman
