Craftsman Power Box

Did a quick run through the tool department at Sears Friday night. I always check out the clearance aisle and they had a few boxes I looked at. One was a 7 drawer top box they had marked at $158. Didn't do anything about it as we were on our way out to meet friends for dinner.
Saturday the better half is headed back in for groceries and to look at a furniture place that's going out of business. I went with, with plans to go back to Sears and pick up that box.
Anyway we do our running and end up at Sears. I am looking over the top box when my wife says, "what about this one?" "It's a lot bigger and is just a bit more". I had looked at the Power Box but hadn't really considered what it was. It was lightly used and has the power strip in the top. I got to thinking about it and I could set it on top of my big horizontal filing cabinet and get all of my drills, chargers, drill bits and a few wrenches in one spot. It was marked $220. With 10% off and tax I got it for 211 and change. Original price was 350.

Came with 4 drill hangers

Wheels around easily on the modified HF furniture dolly I bolted to the filing cabinet.

Thanks Brian, I use a lot of the HF furniture dollies!

I have gotten the power box set up with all of my battery chargers and a good start on getting the drawers organized.
I plugged a house timer into the power strip on the inside of the box and then plugged a power strip into that to run the chargers.
The house timer is the white box on the right. I have it programmed to run for 7 hours when I turn it on. It shuts off automatically so I can charge batteries any time and not worry about any of them overcharging.

Right now there are six batteries being charged in the box.

There are four drills hanging the cabinet. I need to pick up a couple more of the hangers.

Here it is all closed up, not a clue as to what is going on in there.
