Tool Cabinets

I'm in the market for a roller cabinet. I'm sick of not having an organized place for my tools. 10 small boxes isn't cutting it. Anyone know a good source for a good sized cabinet set up? I only want to buy this once.

It depends a lot on how much money you want to spend.
Low cost: Harbor Freight, Tool King etc.
Mid cost: Home Depot, Lowes, Sears.
High cost: Snap-on, Mac, Matco.
When I originally bought I went with Snap-on because I was wrenching for a living and needed quality equipment.

I'm looking at the special here...

www.tnttoys.com

special

A bit pricy, but sounds good. Stainless, 150# per drawer, but I wish I know where they where made, US or foregn. Also wonder how much shipping is.

I still have the KRA 300B roll cab and the tools I bought then, April 1970.

Tool boxes are like garages. The more space you have, the more you put in them. That is good and bad. Gives you a reason to buy more tools. Can't let all of that room go to waste! Also they always get full. I have seen guys that turn wrenches for a living buy every kind of box you can think of. They fill them up, then buy a bigger one or add on to the one that they have.

The main thing to keep in mind is strength. Get one with rollers in the drawers so they will always open, even when filled with heavy tools. I currently have 3 different top/bottom box combinations. The main box that I use is from Sears, and has the rollers. The difference in how the drawers open is like night and day. You can always add on another box later if you need to.
