What Do You Think? (Lista Style Cabs on CL)
« on: August 24, 2017, 11:47:56 AM »
These are a ways out the distance I'll drive for a small ticket item, so I didn't jump when I saw them listed. I can't believe they're still unsold 2 weeks later. Seems like more than a fair buy at $250 to me, but maybe I'm wrong.

They seem to be heavy duty, full extension lista/vidmar style cabinets, and if they're truly Navy surplus, they're built sparing no expense. People must only want the shallow drawer models.

Go get them, they will hold a crap heavy pile of machine tooling without complaint. An absolute bargain!

Never seen them in aluminum but I would jump on that in a heartbeat.

I know they're quality and all that but I don't like them. They look like file cabinets.
In a machine shop setting they would look fine but not in a garage. JMHO.
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

I think if you can use them, they look like a heck of a deal.  thumbsup2

If they're still available, I'd even offer $200 and see if he bites.
This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

I know several guys that have a number of those cabinets in their machine shops. They never last long on CL around here.

It would be interesting to see those in person. They would be long gone if they had shallower drawers. If he wants $250 for both I would buy them and re-sell the second one.

Lol this place is like holding an AA meeting at the liquor store.

I agree with everything above. Space/time/travel keep me from owning these. Thing about CL is, if you wait long enough, somebody will surely buy anything.

There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

I'm a storage junkie, but those are real space hogs.  I wouldn't be fighting you over them.

Agreed, that said generally it is machinists/machine shops that really like those.

The ad was down to $195 for 3 days before it went away. That's cheaper than a toy box from Mall Wart
