International Tool boxes??

Has anyone seen or used International chest and cabinets. All my tools got swiped a week or so ago, I don't mechanic everyday anymore and just can't swallow $3000 worth of Snap On boxes again. Any brand suggestions?

I was down at the So-Cal Speedshop in Vegas a few months ago. A guy named Angleo works there. Really nice fellow. He had a Roll-away that was all Stainless Steel, with ball bearing slides and was very well made I thought. I asked him where he had purchased it, and he told me that he had bought it at Costco for like $500.00. It was about 6' tall, lots of drawers and every bit as nice as my Snap-on-

Rifle, Sorry to hear about what happened that really sucks. I hate a damn thief. I don't have any info on the tool box but I wish you luck in finding something.

I know how that feels..Hope the thief is found..I found some chests on sale at my local parts store that seem to be working just fine and they were not any where near the cost of a snap on..Recently I was at an auction of an estate and a big snap-on roll away went for cheap..wish I had room for it so if you have some auctions in you area you may wish to check them out..

I dont know if they have a store where you live or not but grizzly makes a good box for the price, don't forget about good old craftsman too, some of their ball bearing boxes are perfect for home use. Hope that helps, sorry to hear about your 3k of snapon box gone, hope they catch the sorry sob.

Craftsman does indeed make a good box for the money in fact it is a good box period. My craftsman box and rollaway is twenty five years old and has taken a beating but it has held up well and the new ones I have looked at seem to be built just as well.

I started working for an IHC dealer ship when I was 19 and stayed with them for a LONG time, I had a couple of small IH boxes, one 2 drawer and a 3 drawer that I used on my service truck. They were made my Kennedy tool boxes at the time, I was told. Actually they were a stout tool box. My shop cabinet and chest were Waterloos, also a good stout set, as good as the rest of them at the time.

You want quality cheap? Check E-Bay or your local pawn shop.
