    My FIRST Tool Chest - Which color? pics...

    My first tool box was a little plastic blue thing when i was like 7 years old... i got my set of screw drivers, hammer, a socket set... well dad took over my toolbox and turned it into his plumbing and soldering box

    But anyways, over the past few years i've obviously gotten into mechanics alot and whenever I dont have a tool I make a point of going to buy it. my dad is a constractor so his tools are more oriented towards that and power tools, not so much mechanics tools... I've got no tool box... all my tools go back in the trays/bags they came in when purchased so i can keep track of them and they just go on a shelf somewhere... now my tools are really starting to stack up so i want a rolling tool chest. I'd love a Snap-on box or Mac Tools box but i don't have a couple grand to spend on one

    so this seems like the ticket for me.... it should last me for awhile and it's expandable with a side box and top chest down the road... and priced right and has ball bearing drawer slides and drawer liners in it... far from top of the line, but it's gonna do the job for me.
    • Industrial quality all steel construction
    • Internally welded joints for durability
    • 11,528 cubic inch storage capacity
    • Heavy duty ball bearing slides on all drawers
    • Lockable drawers (key included)
    • Four 5'' casters (2 fixed and 2 swivel with brake)
    • Includes no-slip rubber mats in each drawer and on top
    • Rustproof powder coat finish
    WHAT COLOR!? I'm just getting the main section, not the shaded areas

    i know i can imagine... i have two friends that are mechanics for a living... i drule over their tool boxes all the time but like you said, it set them back 10 grand for the box alone after they got all the accessories and the steel top and draw edge protectors and all the other pretty crap.

    the ones i pictured will suffice me for my recreational wrenching in the confines of my garage... for $399 i can't go wrong i figure... seems like a decent box with ball bearing draw slides, 5" casters, powdercoated... anything comparable with a brand name on it is like 3k+

    i think i'm leaning towards either yellow or black.... only because Red is so generic and popular. You think toolbox or tools of craftsman in ur mind and you think RED... i think the black or yellow is a good variation.

    The worst thing about cheap tool boxes that I have seen is that when the drawers have a lot of weight in them they don't slide easily.

    I would assume ball bearings cure this, but if you can take something heavy and stick it in a drawer, or lean on it....see how it slides in and out (haha, my mind is in the gutter)

    I opted for a peg board system and small tool chest that sits on the shelf. Floor space is precious in my garage. The tool chest holds sockets, punches, and the peg board has everything else.

    WHAT COLOR!?
    Red is the classic tool box color for us old farts.

    The younger generations goes for the other colors in the rainbow. I have seen purple, green, blues, white (stupid), pinstripes, air brushed, painted murals, even a pink one that belonged to a chick at an auto electric shop.

    The black wont show fingerprints like the others.
