Unless you want to spend a bunch, get a Harbor Freight, the reviews on their "cheap" stuff have been top notch for years. I know several folks that buy nothing but quality tools and they use the boxes from HF.

Sucks to buy something new to only have to bring it straight back. I bought a dryer a couple of years back and the damn timer was wired backwards and had to bring it back

I'm seriously considering doing that. The box itself seems nice and quality. The locking mechanism is chit. I'll probably give it one more shot, but will test all the drawers before assembling.

I bought this one from Harbor freight about 4 years ago and it has been a great tool cabinet so far... And it's survived 2 house moves. I plan on getting the additional side cabinet for it one day soon

I took the cabinet height in to consideration when I built that work bench in the shop. The cabinet will just barely roll under the bench
