Craftsman has teased us about some of the new tool storage products they’ll be coming out with soon. They add that “this is only the beginning.”
If you missed it, here’s a look at some of the new Craftsman mechanics tool sets for 2018.
Shown above, a 26″ Pro tool box with cantilever tray. The “Pro” description is theirs, not mine. That’s interesting, and so is the neat cantilever tray that lifts out of the way when the tool box lid is open.
Hmm. Look at the inner side of the lid. It looks to me like that’s the inside of a transparent flip-out lid that allows users to access small parts, fasteners, tools, or accessories without having to open the whole lid. Do you agree?
Ah, a 20″ wide 3-drawer metal tool box. And it’s made in the USA!
I had one like this, and another with 2 drawers with a deeper top lid compartment, but I gave both away. I gave one of them to my father, and he seems happy with it.
These tool boxes are popular, but for my purposes it was too heavy and the drawers not quite deep enough.
There’s a new customizable parts organizer, and it’ll be packaged as a 2-pack.
Looks like a Stanley Sortmaster or Sortmaster Jr, but in Craftsman red and black color scheme.
As at least one person pointed out to me (thank you!!), there’s a new modular tool box system that looks like the SBD Tstak system.
You can find a similar Stanley FatMax Tstak combo package, and it looks like Dewalt Tstak products should be fully compatible.
If you want a one-piece tool storage solution, here’s the Multi-Level Workshop.
There will be a number of 26″ wide tool storage chests and cabinets.
As well as 41″ products of the same style.
This one’s a little different, with a 27″ form factor and humongous top lid storage compartment.
This style will also be available with 52″ components.
Lastly, Stanley Black & Decker seems to be extending support for the VersaTrack wall-mounted tool storage system.
Will any of these new or returning Craftsman tool storage products make their way onto your shopping list?
