Exactly what I've been looking for. Site says $69.99, how do I get them for $45?

You guys don't really want a cabinet that cant handle a piece of paper do you? It's only 7 7/8" deep. A piece of paper is 8.5" wide. Waste of money

Fuck the paper, that is why I have a desk
Now drill bit indexes, hole saws, paint cans, those will hold shit tons of those.
Sorta what I was looking for to hang by my drill presses.
Decent price if they are made worth a shit, but I'm not holding my breath on that.
Have a HF across town, may have to drop in and see if they have any I can finger,,,,,,

They have a back in them, they are pretty well made for HF.
I like it for behind a door where a normal depth cabinet would not fit.

If you like a cabinet made out of material that should be used for beer cans, then these are the cabinets for you.

It's not a bad cabinet. We sell one about once a month. I have 2 in my shop that is filled with everything. That's the best price you will get it.

I've looked at it closely, twice when it was the killer low price and still managed to walk away.

HF wasn't proud enough of them to have any out at the Des Moines, Iowa store.
Guess I'll keep looking too.
They didn't have any 8000 or 10,000 lb winches out either.
About the only thing I saw worth a shit was the overhead gantry. For the money it looked worth it.

The gantry's a pretty nice unit, and a very good value for what you get. Heavy as hell (since its got so much tube) and the hardware is so-so (shitty lock-washers), but I had one for a while and it was a good piece. We used it for work on job sites and it worked well, but got rid of it cause we weren't using it all that much, it was heavy as hell to breakdown, move and reassemble, and I needed the warehouse space back I was storing it in. If I had a better place to keep it, I would have.

I have a set of these cabinets. The problem i have with them is that the shelf don't sit flat. So the shit slides out when you open the door. I picked up some Black and Decker cabinets at Lowes on sale a few weeks back. Very nice for the money.

I've had one for almost ten years. It's OK for the price and the size is great for many places.

If you can get metal kitchen cabinets, you'll be happier, but the H-F will certainly free up bench space.

A gantry crane is likely my next purchase from H-F, I can see many uses for one.

The 8000 and 10,000 are discontinued. They have a 9000 and 12,000 out now

Fatboy, I got the ratings wrong, but they used to have them stacked in the store like cord wood, but now the largest they had was the ATV winches.
Those winches are a decent value for the money, a buddy has some in his hauler for his pulling trucks, and they work fine. So I guess I'm up to two items I'd buy at HF. (gantry and winches). Well 3, I have the welding "blanket" and it works OK for the money.

We had the 8's and 10' not 2 months ago. There were some really good coupons out for them. I'm still kicking my ass for not buying a 10,000 lbs this past summer. The new 9's and 12's look really good. Guess I'll have to wait for coupons for the new ones.

Still not seeing the draw to these. I actually always thought they were a place to hang your keys when I glanced over them in the flyers Maybe if you have tiny bins to store in there - might be good reloading cabinet for bullets, and such ?

These HF, the Gladiators, Sevilles', etc. are all tinny IMO.

Go find someplace selling office leftovers or use craigslist to find overhead cabinets from an office cubicle. They are beefy as hell. I bought four of them for $10 from a company auctioning off all of their furniture/fixtures. Cut off the tabs that they hang from a cubicle wall with and welded in a steel back to bolt them onto a wall. Some of them don't require any modification.

An example of a similar build: http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=45000
