Thanks yall, feel free to continue sending me these, I have yet to find a deal. Will check out HarborFreight and the Craftsman sale they are having this weekend.

Ya know how it is especially this time of year and I just put out around $1200.00 for all the parts for my motor. The parts are rolling in and would like to be a little better organized before I begin the assembly.

Again, thanks and I will continue checking back often to keep up with the posts from yall.

Think outside the box. A friend of mine found a used file cabinet for storing blueprints. It has wide ball bearing drawers, about 3 feet, and approx 3" deep. All he did was add a set of casters. This thing works great and was cheap.

If you can wait until after Christmas, you would be surprised at how cheap they can get. I bought a Sears roller bottom to put under my Snap-on box and a Home Despot 3 drawer box to put some more tools in - I think the total was just over $100. BUT, they are no where near the quality of the Snap-on box. I paid 'big bucks' for that about 1960 - $150 but it still looks good and hold a lot of tools. And I still have lots more tools on peg boards, in drawers and cabinets. Soooooo, after Christmas.........

Aw, face it Dave, you are really looking forward to buying another box. That'll give you another excuse to buy more tools.


In a while, Chet.

Sears - rolling cab with a top box - $168/cheap for a home shop box. Hmmmm, if I count that jug of pennies, sell the extra kerosene heater on Craigslist........

Ideas Posted

I have been checking out the ideas posted, I am not ignoring them. Please feel free to continue.

Ireland's child suggests waiting until after Xmas, that is a good idea as well, the after Xmas sells are usually pretty good. If I find something in the meantime, that would be good as well. And hey, the $168 sound pretty good too.

Milo sent a link, thanks am checking this out.

55BigBlock, good idea. The only problem with file cabinets, the last one we picked up was a great deal. Found after a weekend yard sale, they were throwing it away. It was sooo nice, it was taken for keeping legal paperwork in.

I just bought one also and the best deal I found was by Sears on eBay. I bought two exactly like Brian B's minus the middle cabinet, still in the boxes, for like $280. Thats less than half of what Sears normally has them on sale for, which was $299 each

Menards had a sale on the "homeowner" type cheaper top chest/bottom roller combo for $50. I passed because I'm holding out for the 52" ball bearing jobber.


In a while, Chet.
