    I must admit, I have been looking for a new tool box lately, till I saw the price!!! I'll be sticking to my 30 year old battered one for now.

    Honestly Grey is this tool chest worth getting, I've been saving up to get one for Chrissy but they are like $400 and I don't wanna pay that.

    Its definately get what u pay for ..... the more expensive ones definately have way better draw runners and thicker walls etc .....
    Like the one Kiffsta has linked I would jump at ...if it was at the local store to pickup .... but shipping is the killer.

    Then u have this kinda thing at supercheap .... I looked quickly at these today and they look pretty good quality .... but just too costly for my meagre budget
    http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/on...-27-Blue.aspx?pid=326689&menuFrom=70901#Cross

    Maybe my cheapo will have broken draws or wateva eventually but thats life in the poor lane ... theres a few reviews about it on the ad page

    Then.... theres always this one .....:D

    This is expensive for a no-name brand (imo of Calibre)

    I could buy 3 more bikes for this price!!

    Got the rear wheel off to get the tyres changed. Waiting on a front stand to get the front off. Doing rear disc, chain and sprocket as well. Couldn't get the side plate off the master link. Probably seized on real well. This always has to happen when I only bring enough tools(from work) do the job with no complications. Go figure...

    I haven't seen this product, having said that it does look great and the company have laid everything out very comprehensibly and seem to have nothing to hide. Having a good read of the description it would seem to be well built and certainly wouldn't look out of place in your new MAN CAVE!! I give it the :thumb_ups:
