You gotta love Craigslist. We drove for an hour South to Attleboro yesterday to Harbor Freight Tools to check out a tool cabinet. Unfortunately, it did not work out. Today, we drove an hour and a half up North and found exactly what we were looking for and at almost 80% off! Getting it back to the office was an adventure, but that is a story for another time.
This Steel Glide tool cabinet was purchased new by the seller at Sam's Club. The seller had purchased it, put some tools in it, and never opened it again. He was doing some clean up and realized that he would rather have the room and the extra cash. We saw his ad on Saturday and had the deal completed by Sunday.
We were not disappointed. The unit was so new that most of the protective plastic wraps were still on unexposed surfaces. The materials used were heavy guage stainless steel. The glides were the extensible kinds which can support the drawers even when fully extended.
This twelve drawer unit came in two separate pieces. There are heavy-duty handles on the side, a gas-shock hinged lid on top, and locking casters on the bottom.
All of the drawers have non-slip tool liners and both units are lockable. This toolchest is a welcomed addition to our workshop. We'll need to do some reorganization before we can find a spot for it. [Permalink] - Steel Glide Tool Cabinet
