This is true. Depending on the level, it may or may not have ball bearing slides, and may or may not have channeled frames. The only Craftsman sets worth buying are the HD Ball Bearing sets which are both ball bearing slides and channeled frames.

I meant the black HF stuff.

I bought the 8 drawer 50th Anniversary Roller Bearing model in Black and Grey. I'm happy with that one on clearance for $199. The non-bearings ones didn't seem too sturdy.

I just put together all of my Christmas Costco gift cards and bought the kirkland tool chest costco sells. It's 42" wide and 63" tall. For some strange reason I thought it would fit in my wife's prius but that didn't happen. Had to call my in laws to bring their Escape and it barely fit. I'll take some pictures tomorrow when I get home. My local Costco didn't have any so I had to buy it here in ft wayne.

I got the red 44" HF chest and top box for Christmas. It is much bigger than I expected, so all of my tools fit with room to grow! My only complaint is that the top doesn't like to stay closed without locking it, but I don't want to lock it all the time. I'll lose the key, and for some reason it won't stay in. I may have to rig up a magnetic catch or something to hold it down.

I thought I'd throw this idea out here. As you know Radio Shack is down sizing, so there are a number of stores that will be closing. I was in one the other day and noticed that their small parts drawers have snap-on quality glides. This may be an opportunity to pick up some of these super cheap. The insides come out so that means all kinds of options for storage for a fraction of what a lower tool cabinet would cost.
There are three stores in my area, two of them are closing. I went in and asked about the drawers and who would be the person to make the decision on selling them. I offered to take all of them at about $25 a cabinet and maybe we could work out a deal on all of them. Then left my contact info to see what happens.
Good luck, maybe we can score some of these!
Cheers,

- Jeff
