Thanks Greg, someone was telling me at work that Craftsman are now being made in the US, but I haven't seen any. I was at Home Depot tonight and although not made in the US, Milwaukee has some tough looking tool chest.

Re: Craftsman tool chest

the store itself gets knocked around a lot for the chinese junk it sells, but the harbor freight tool chests are very hard to beat for the money.

go to www.garagejournal.com and do a search on some of the conversations. Note how a lot of the hard-core Snap On fanboys that wrench for a living use the HF boxes at home. This sounds boastful and it is NOT meant that way, but I have tools with names like milwaukee, miller, bridgeport, starrett, browne & sharp, mitutoyo, lincoln, & snap-on in my home shop. With that being said I also have two of the older 42" HF boxes bolted end to end for storage, and those two boxes are some of the best money I've spent on ANY tool in my shop

Re: Craftsman tool chest

There is a USA toolbox stamping company, I forgot the name ,but they vertualy make all these big box store toolboxes colbolt,dewalt,milwalkee ect,ect they are just made to each companys specs. I agree about Harbor frieght tool boxes , about 2 years ago they came out with there series 2 tool box line up they really upped there game as far as quality and depth of there tool boxes . Really go to all the big box stores in your area and pull the draws, feel the gauge of the sheet metal ,just feel the overall quality ,then hop in your truck and go to harbor frieght and compare there quality in the price range you were looking at, and also compare the add on avalibilty they offer .sheet metal gauge, depth of box, draw action and overall weight is what you want to compare .
