Like all Craftsman are made in the USA? I have two MasterForce from Menards and they are heavier built than my buddy's Craftsman Griplatch. The metal is thicker, the box is heavier, and all the drawers are ball bearing. Torin is a good box for the money as some of the others. Sure they aren't SO, Mac, and such, but some people today are on a limited budget. I have less than a grand in a 46" roller, top cabinet, and 6 drawer side box.
