That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke

Bruce, that's a nice dimensionally-appealing box, from the online price it seems a pretty good deal.  Could you measure the depth of the drawers?  My Craftsman stacks are 19" deep.

The box is 24" and the drawers are 22".
I think if they were any deeper, I wouldn't be able to open them because I have the welding table in front of it.  I gotta do some rearranging in the garage to fit the old box somewhere and still have room to park two cars at night.


I added an aluminum strip to separate the drawers a little better.  IMHO the box should have came with this strip and the angles on the ends.
I also debadged it.  I see a lot of people put on a Snap On emblem but my box is now a BATBOX! NANA NAN NANA NANANANA BATBOX!
No shoe rack... yet...

Thanks.  It should hold up well enough for me.  Not so sure how it would do in a shop where it would see every day use and abuse.

The grays will stay until I die.  I drove two hours each way to puck them up.  My wife bought them for me for my birthday several years ago.

Well that settles it then. You can't very well paint a Batbox red.

Well, I sold the Frankenbox.  The guy picked them up yesterday for $600.
I've had them for so long I kinda feel bad about letting them go.  If I had any place to put them I'd have kept them.
They're going to a good home though.  He was a guy about my age that appreciates older tool boxes.

To be honest I prefer the old set-up you had, although I understand it can be inconvenient having your tools spread out over several boxes. I especially like the blue Gray's and the Mastercraft (striped handled) top box. $600 was probably a fair price for both you and the buyer.

I agree and would have kept them if I had the room.  The blue Grays aren't going anywhere soon.  Those and the Craftsman bottom box were gifts from my wife.
The new box is much easier to work out of now that I'm doing a lot of side work at home.
