    Toolboxes? what is best what is not

    Hi guys, my dad wants to get me a late birthday present, and get me a nice toolbox.. because I have tools all over the place.

    we went to sears today, and were looking at the toolboxes, and I want to know if the ball bearing ones are really that much better than the quiet glide, or if there is no real difference.

    What kinda toolboxes do you guys have?

    pics?

    Do you like it, what features are better than others what are some things to look for when buying one?

    any help would be great!

    Thank you

    -Grass

    Get the ball bearing slides, they last a lot longer and easier to pull when loaded up tools. I think Craftman's toolbox are getting cheaper in quality, ie the drawers seem to flex a lot when pulling on them. I saw a toolbox at Tractor Supply with ball bearing slides and drawers felt solid.

    When loaded with heavy tools, and a little age, you will want the one with the bearings!!!!!!!!

    The first time I heard was from an Assistant Manager of Lowes, oh some 8 years ago. There sockets look identical.

    I really don't want to spend like 1000 plus like on the snap on website..

    I don't really need something jino like some of you have...

    but like the 3 setup...
