Snap-On KR547 Mid Box

I got this as part of a roller/mid/top chest I bought off Craigslist this past spring. I would love to use it but it just puts the top chest way to high for me. It might be good for a rear tool chest in the back of a rig. A little tall but fits in the back between the fenderwells on a 90/110.

KR-547D - 1991
Dimensions: 32.5" Wide x "18" deep x 12" tall
Probably 80 lbs so might be hard to ship unless I pull the drawers and do 2 boxes.

$250 OBO

I need to organize my travel tools, but have really been looking for something the same width as the wheel well which could be unobtainum...
For years, I just dumped the metric drawer into a heavy canvas bag and poured it back again after the trip until I actually needed to use them and noticed it was too time consuming to hunt for a specific socket and wrench size.

Let me measure my base cabinet and see how this would fit. I can definitely use 3 more drawers

I could take a pic of it inside the back of the 110 Robert. It isn't wheelwell to wheelwell but it's pretty close. I think the bummer about it is that it is a little taller than the wheelwells.

I just buy everything in kits now, gave up on the big tool box long ago (because I was moving so often), if it doesn't come in an ABS plastic carrying case I don't buy it. I also put tools back as I use them... though I might be the only person I know who does.

Damn, I don't know how you cannot use a big box for tool storage. But can see why if you have been moving a lot. The 2 other Snap On pieces I bought was one of the best projects of the summer. Took me a while but I love walking up to it. My Craftsman boxes were fine and all but the Snap On mystic certainly has merit. And I was able to go down to one stack vs the 2 smaller ones I had.

I dunno ... Nothing beats a tool roll. For a number of reasons. Easily thrown in a big bin or locker and keeps it all together and organized.

Bump for a good box though. I have 2 tall and 2 short in my garage

I completely agree they have their place, and I do own a small one, I just keep tools in smaller lighter boxes on account of the moving thing. If/when one of my swimmers actually does something right and a girl grows our spawn/parasite for 9 months in a home we purchase from the bank but won't own for 30 years; then I'll buy the big box

The obvious answer is "all of the above." You need a minimum of three sets of tools - otherwise you're constantly packing and repacking and it's an accountability nightmare.

I'm certain it will get considerably more (ie daily) use with me than it would with you.

Likely true but Don's going to trip over it until 2016 when you find someone to haul it to you .

Haha - yeah, Doug has spoken for it. Wish I had another one for Matt!

Hopefully can get it to someone that will get it down to Doug pretty easily. NJ to VA shouldn't be too bad.

I'll be making several runs to Baltimore so running up to Nj from there isn't hateful. Plus I'll have extreme RURR capacity in the f250.......
There are 2 defenders sitting @ Baltimore waiting for Customs release that are my winter build projects for Nantucket clients and another Swiss 90 inbound from Will @ Defenders Direct.

Maybe we could put together that cigars and bourbon night in Philly @ Roach Obrians ?
