There was a nice snap on unit for a 400 dollar starting bid.Probably a come on for a higher price.Probably had a reserve. Ther is a few craftsman boxes pretty decent price.
I just hate to see people buy that chinese made stuff,it usually breaks soon after purchase. Buying american, you could say, is futile, but at least your not giving your money straight to the chinese.
It pays to shop around. A box like he pictured doesnt offer any space on top for any kind of use. A bottom box is good as it gives an extra workspace on top which is pretty nice, as well as plenty of room for tool storage.
There are plenty of good brands that are quality american made like matco, mac,craftsman,waterloo is also a good box.I have a matco (waterloo) and it has roller drawers. I bought it cash 15 years ago for 1200 bucks.It looked like new then.There are deals out there.
