Reader and frequent commentor IndyEngineer tipped us off to a great deal currently at Sears. The above shown ball bearing storage combo is now $700, which is 50% off its regular price of $1400. That’s a great deal indeed! Craftsman 22 Drawer 40-inch Ball Bearing Storage Combo
Via their Facebook page, Snap-on recently discussed how one could skin and customize their Snap-on tool storage. While we understand and can appreciate the desire to customize and personalize a tool box, designs like this seem to be a bit too ostentatious.
We have a lot of small tools and parts laying around, and have been actively searching for good storage solutions to help get everything in order. Some of the better products that we’ve been trying out are these plastic trays by Itso.
A few weeks ago, we ordered a few Tanos Systainer storage trays from Lee Valley. These polystyrene compartmentalized storage trays are designed to fit into Systainer boxes, but we intend to use these trays in a few drawers to hold loose parts and tools.
Over at ProToolReviews, Tom Gaige has reviewed Husky’s 6-drawer tool chest (26PCHTHD), and rated its quality and performance as 9/10, and its value as 10/10. We recently posted about Husky’s new tool storage units, but Tom’s is the first independent review that we’ve seen. The review is quite detailed, and lauds the chest’s build quality and user-friendly […]

Purchased were: two 2-drawer ball bearing intermediate chests, and one 6-drawer Griplatch ball bearing chest. Thus far, I’m less than fully satisfied with all three units.
I’m a huge fan of IKEA’s ALEX series of drawer units, with my favorite style being the above-pictured 6-drawer unit. While the drawers are not fully extending, they’re quite spacious, and can handle a reasonable amount of weight for their size and construction. As with most IKEA products, assembly is DIY, but everything fits together […]

Actually, this unit is better described as massive, with phenomenal capacity. The regular […]
We scoured Sears’ website and data feeds, and found quite a few hot clearance deals on tools and tool storage products. Given the incredible savings, we felt that these deals were far too good to only mention in a single short-lived post, so we assembled them into a Sears & Craftsman Clearance Deal Page. This […]
