looking for something of decent size. Perhaps a two piece setup (bottom box with wheels and deeper drawers with a top stacking box). Don't really care what brand, just as long as the locks work on it and the drawers operate smooth enough.

More than you can afford Pal, Snap-On. Pretty sure he's into the low thousands.. Knowing you, you're thinkin' low hundreds...

yeah more then I want to spend. craftsman has some deals going on their boxes. a bottom roller and a top stacker together for anywhere ranging from $400-$1000 depending on model and options....etc

Look at the kobalt toolboxes at lowes. I got the 42" roller top and bottem for under $900. It's good quality, ofcourse not up there with the $5000 brand name boxes, but I think it's better then the boxes at sears.

I had my kobalt box for about 2 years now. Not a single problem. The only thing I wasn't happy about was needing to go to two different lowes to buy it. One lowes had the top and one had the bottom.

I'm sorry but i really don't see the point of buying a 5k tool box. As long as the box can take the weight of the tools whats the point?

what about the sets they sell at fleetfarm... stack-on...

the set that ive got is pretty heavy duty... picked up both upper and lower for just over $500...

i can snap some pictures if you want...

It's like the difference between a Cadillac & Mercedes, both will perform great but some people want the best......

I was at sears today looking at boxes and I gotta say... im not impressed. Even their ball bearing grip latch boxes seem "ok" at best. For the quality, I think they are way over priced, and their lower end boxes seem like Harbor Freight quality.... drawers seem flimsy and don't roll very well.

I'm thinking about either the Kobalt toolboxes mentioned earlier, the Husky boxes at home depot, or the Clarke boxes offered at Menards. The Clark stack-able boxes seem to have quite a bit of storage for a decent price. Bottom roller box (Clarke HD like this one: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CLK-CBB215/ ) for about $279.

I'm not looking to buy something top of the line, just something that is decent and will last awhile

Nothern tool has a really heavy duty box for the money, but's it's pretty ugly and doesen't have drawer dividers. Heavy duty for cheep though. I think the 42" top/lower are around $800 for both.

For the money the master force tool boxes at menards seem damn good. Only bad part is they only come in green.
