I'm going to pass on this Tool Box purchase since the expenditure is to much. I wanted one that would be durable enough that I could pass it on to Mick. At the present I have a Beach Tool Box, that I absolutely hate the sliders since the tend to stick even after I've lubricated them 10 times, and yes with white lub.

Even used Snap On Boxes are expensive.

The biggest thing on a box is the roller ball bearing drawers. That'* what keeps them from sticking. I picked up my box for around $600 at Costco and would quickly empty it and sell for a lower price if you had an interest. (I have kinda outgrown it and need the next bigger one).

I noticed the other day and made a few comments at work about how much tool box'* cost today?
Sears is having a sale but even still they cost more than double than just a few years ago

Was thumbing through the snap on cataloge to see what you might be interested in, There are some nice rollaways there.....some big enough to have an engine and a seat belt

And I'm having the exact same problem, my tool box is just to small. I loose interesnt when:
- the drawers are to full that they jam when you try to open them cause the tools are stuck
- the lack of roller bearing makes the drawers stick and you have to use force to open them
- tools are laying all over the place and you can't find then cause you don't have enough room in your box to store them
- you loose tools since you don't bother returning them to your tool box.........because it to small.

In conclusion, frustration is setting in just talking about it. I would post a picture of my tool room, but that would only embarass me and Boosty would only make some sarcastic remark about being Canadian and that'* just a way of life for us here........eh?

Just kiiding Boostmaster Flex........sir!
