Default Tool storage question; What is better: Cheap Craftsman, or Cheap Waterloo

I have a guy tha tcan get me waterloo at 60% off, or I can get craftsman. I'm not talking highen shop stuff, just something to get my tools off the floor. It would be the lowest end of both manufacturers.

Any comments or suggestions?

Hmmm... I've never used waterloo products, so I couldn't say. Mine is a craftsman, but certainly not their higher end stuff. Mine is what they call "homeowner grade" or something like that. The drawers are not the ball bearing type, but operate quite smoothly and I've never had to lube them or anything. I'd recommend this grade of craftsman tool chest any day. Of course, they also sell all kinds of dividers and racks for your wrenches and stuff that fit into the drawers, and drawer liners and whatnot, which are inexpensive items but can make a big difference in how accessible your tools are when you need them.

Hope that's helpful.

It is thanks Charlie. I hear you Jaxx, (username form the shanara series?) But I can't justify the price of ball bearing.

OK, here's a shocker....

Craftsman Tool Boxes are made by Waterloo

As are Husky Boxes & Kobalt boxes...the only difference is that they are built to each stores specifications.
