Snap-On Toolbox

I received a very extensive craftsman tool set for christmas (as seen in the MANY PICS below). So, I thought to myself......hmmmmmm.......where will I put all of these tools? I looked at my POS small toolbox and shook my head. I looked at my storage closet and shook my head. It was then I knew that it was time. So the search began for the right toolbox for BooKilla!

And then I saw it. The Snap-On toolbox that would be mother to my tools...(Stock#: KRA5213D) 13 drawer double bank in black.

Without further adu......may I introduce....Tiffany

I'm surprised that tool box hasn't spit out the crapsmen stuff




















Seriously, nice score on both tools and box

Lots of room in there though, you need lots more tools...


and a top box...



and lots more tools.

Very nice! I've been looking into a somewhat-large box to replace our 30-year-old Matco box. It takes 2 hands to open most of the drawers...especially the bottom one with our 3/4" stuff and impacts.

I got approved for a Craftsman Credit Card...so I've been looking...

I agree go used, and find a KRL not a KRA, the KRL is the premium line.

Eh, should be big enough for just home usage. But....why buy a snap on box for home use? I personally wouldnt even buy one for professional use, just way too damn expensive.

+ It's not like you HAVE to use a SEARS card to shop at sears.... this is unless your other cards are maxed which in case you should not be buying tools anyway

Don't worry...I ain't going to make any big purchases. Just a couple hundred dollars at most...something that I can pay off in a month or two.

Sears had a sale on deep-well impact sockets last weekend. $49 for a set of 12mm-27mm, and 1/2" to 1-1/8". Only for club members...and I wasn't one at the time

I won't buy anything crapsman every again, their quality has gone to far down hill. So as I break sockets (the only crapsman tools I have left) I replace them with snap-ons.
