My drawers work great, I guess you guys are talking about the mechanism (detent) that cause you to have to tug at the drawer to open it. If that is what you are talking about then mine are just right, takes a little tug to move them then they roll out perfectly, Got pics but the file is to large, I will try to reduce them tonight for those that are curios about the box. now we need to start a thread about tools! So I can fill the monster up! I have accumulated a bunch of junk over the years and that is going to the steel recycle folks. I bought the Box from Harbor Freight, but I did not see one hand tool that I would buy. I hope the guy that started this thread, got the word on how good of a box he suggested,

HF tool chest

My wife bought that whole setup for me 3 years ago for xmas, around 1,000 as I recall. It doesn't look like the one pictured above, cause it is jammed with tools, and not neatly. Granted, it hasn't moved from it's spot in 3 years, so no wheel problems, but no other problems either. I'm thrilled with it. I'm not a pro, but I'm retired, so it gets used almost every day.

Since I've had no problems with HF stuff (they're so cheap if I burn up a die grinder etc. I just throw it away) so I have no idea how they handle problems, but I do have experience with Lowe's and Kobalt (air compressor). There is no "Kobalt" they are a division of Lowe's, but customer service is non existant. Replacement parts are unobtainable. Even the store couldn't get any satisfaction. They finally replaced it with one in the store. Same problem 3 months later. I had it fixed at a local shop. Been good ever since.

In all fairness, my compressor gets a workout similar to a pro shop, and for the price I'm happy. Just making a point, find out about the warrany before you buy.

New Link!

Harbor Freight just did a major update on their website. It's much better, but a lot of the old links posted won't work. Here is the new page for the Tool Chest.

Considering

I'm considering the HF box. It gets good reviews here and on other forums.

Harbor Freight

Buy it. It's on sale right now! check around for coupons, hotrod magazine, Harbor Freight website etc. They honored coupons with the sale price, I got mine and I'm glad I did. It is one of the best purchases I have ever made!

I have a flier that says the HF 13-Drawer Cabinet will be on sale for $359.99 between January 14-17. If you can use that 20% Off Coupon that would be $285.99!
