Good Deal on Craftsman Tool Chest?

I've been looking for a Tool Chest for awhile. I found this set being sold for $300 or best offer. It includes drawer liners and has only been used for a few months.

Does this seem like a good deal? What would be reasonable to offer?

Looks like an okay deal, if its in near-new condition. But, ONLY if you have that Community College tuition already paid!!!!!!! How's that education coming? What have you decided regarding your tech classes?

That is a good starter box, but it's a bit too narrow IMHO, and may be a bit too high to see into the drawers of the top box.

Didn't sign-up for classes yet! I'm trying to find work in the field, and see if I like it first. I haven't been to impressed with the teacher or instruction.

I thought it was narrow too! It's difficult to find good used Tool Chests.

All right starter box, but VERY limited in storage. I had a similar box set I used to use for specialty tools, and it fills up FAST. You may be happier with something like this.

A little bit largert, but not too huge, and is upgradeable with stuff like side cabinates and lockers, ect.

Sorry, look on pg 11 at the PRT3410RD and PRB3408RD. The link doesn't take you right to it.

I don't have that exact box, but I have the CFB4215/CFB4211 combo on the next page or so. Great boxes, as this company also makes the Craftsman boxes, and some others, as well. It will be more than $300, though.

I looked it up online and came up with $669 for the top, and $943.33 for the bottom. Maybe a little steep for start up.....

Oh! Tool storage is expensive! I might need this unit for a job. I don't know if it would be adequate.

I guess I could keep looking. There are always garage sales and estate sales.
