    Anyone ever order a tool box without really thinking it over.
    I bought one last month, needed a bigger one.
    Pictures didnt look like the one I got.
    So,
    Let's see your toolbox.
    Other nice boxes are accepted also.

    Here's mine. The color is Land Rover green, these were originally made for a chain of Land Rover dealerships and Cornwell sold some through their distributors. Yes, my garage is really messy!

    That L/R green looks very close to the factory color called Epson green.

    Thanks. I keep hammers, punches, and prybars in the wide middle drawer. I keep all my sockets in the very top which opens up. These boxes were made by Kennedy and are very good quality. The only box I would trade it for is the Snap-On Ford Mustang edition from the 90's.

    I’m going to buying a new box in the near future. I bought a 56” second hand no name chest last spring because I needed more space and it’s already broken. Talk about irritating. I’m going to try a harbor freight “US General” box. They seem very well built for the money. I’d like a nice snap on or matco box but even at the deeply discounted used prices they are well out of my budget.

    My wife bought me a general. I wasnt very much about it until I put it together. For the price it was worth it and it doesnt feel like cheap crap. It'll probably last my lifetime.

    Appreciate the feedback on them. I’m going to get their 72” chest, should hold all my tools with a little space to spare.

    I have had a HF box for a long time. I'm really impressed in how it's held up. The drawers are still nice yet.
    And I have a ton of weight in some of them.

    I wondered how they would hold up to the weight. Especially the wide drawers that are nice to load with hundreds of sockets. Thanks for sharing, sounding like I’m making a good choice for my budget.
