Tool box help.. Quiet Glide Vs. Ballbearing...

So I am in the market for a top chest to match my Craftsman Ball Bearing bottom chest... I'm looking at this one I found at a badass deal, but not sure if I want it due to it being Quiet Glide...

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...r+quiet+glide#

What's your guys' experience with Quiet Glide? I know I won't have my heavy tools in there, and having the 9 small drawers will be nice, so Ball Bearing may not make that big of a difference.

Help me out guys...

The quite glide is actually a pretty smooth system, and if you aren't going to load it down it will be perfectly fine. They actually are still pretty easy to use even when loaded.

I love craftsman tools but their boxes have always been rediculesly priced. It may be a cheapo, but I bought the top chest just like that one and the bottom roller one for a total of $100-150.

BTW the bearing version is a moneymaker for them. Dosen't cost much more to make and both types will rust and cause problems at the same time.

Ball Bearing and Quiet Glide both have the same weight capacity per drawer (50 lbs) and have the same overall box construction. The only real difference construction wise is the glide. If you use it daily for work then I'd recommend the BB over the QG. If its just for your house and your a weekend warrior the QG will work just fine.

But for $150, is the top one worth it? It's just for the house, and I don't plan on putting much weight in it.

Tell you the truth none of those boxes hold enough! I really don't use it anyway. I got into the habbit of using those roller tubs. Not this one but close to it.

It's faster and easier to me. Otherwise I would need like 5 of those bench style ones to be orginized. I don't have the money or room for that!

You can always get one of these for $20-50 and they hold almost as much as those you posted.

Take a day and drive to Van Wert, home of Kennedy Tool Boxes. They have a showroom and sell scratch and dent boxes for cheap. Quite often, it is nothing more than a small scratch in the brown wrinkle finish. they sell touch up paint there too. You can get them for 25% off there.

Also...get the ball bearing slides.......much better under load.

Kennedy makes some nice boxes. I have a kennedy machinists chest as well as a Gershner wooden machinist chest.

If you want a nice box, spend the coin and buy a nice box. I have a 3-peice set of Kennedy boxes for work, ball bearing roller base (my uppers aren't available in bearing). It's super nice, I'm glad I spent the coin.

That said, my tool box at home is a Sears special. Bought it black friday a couple years ago, $200 for a 3-peice set. It's cheap, but it's sturdy enough for anything I need at home.

What it boils down to is, what do you need/want in a tool box. At home, I take value over the features. For work/everyday use, you want something that will hold up and have the neat and/or convenient features that make life easier.

It's not for everyday use, but I do want it to last..

For $140 I'll be happy if it holds what I have until I build up my collection..

My bro has a craftsman box mainly, all BB and his boxes are older then me..
