I am a professional mechanic. I have owned and used a wide variety of toolboxes. This box is on par with the best of them. I have owned it for 6 months now, not a complaint whatsoever… – 05Willys, PA

After looking at several overpriced “big name” boxes, I looked at this 72″ roll cab. I was very impressed with the construction and smoothness of the drawers. The HD casters are very strong also. I would highly recommend this roll cab for a professional as well as a hobbyist. You could easily spend 10X plus on a “big name” box and you’re really just paying for the name plate. This cab is definitely the way to go. – Randy, New York

Had this box for several months, replaced a Snap-On that was too small. I work on heavy truck/equipment and have many large heavy tools and open the drawers 100+ times a day. I don’t baby it, either. Heavy duty ball bearing double slide bars on all drawers. This is one tough box. My co-workers with Snap-on and Cornwell boxes are jealous when they make a box payment every week … –  Redryder, Yelm, WA

Have a smaller industrial/professional roller cabinet and had tools piled on top of each other. Checked out the US General cabinet at the store and was impressed, particularly with the self-securing drawers that can be accessed with one hand. The beefy construction

This is by far the best deal around on a box like this. Well-built and very attractive looking. Works awesome and a great addition to my set. – Dciguy5, Santa Clarita, CA

I work part time as an aircraft mechanic and did not want or need anything too large or too extravagant. With few exceptions, I have always been pleased with my purchases from HF and caught this cabinet on sale just at the time I needed it. I compared it to similar sized cabinets at the “big box stores” and this one definitely felt sturdier than those did, and for a lot less money. I have been using this for about 6 months now and could not be happier with it. It is well constructed and well designed. The drawers slide very nicely with very little play. It has held up well and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a rolling tool chest in this category. – SNL19067, Bucks County, PA

This is perfect for my shop and it holds most every tool I need when I am working on a car on the lift. It beats having to roll my big roll-away around. This would also be great for the home mechanic even if you have a roll-away tool box already. This is a high-quality, extremely well-made box with outstanding fit and finish. Buy it … You will be glad you did!!! – Geezer’s Garage, Torrance, CA

Snap-on truck wanted over $700 for almost the same cart so I went with this one and I love this box. Great buy for a beginner tech. Very happy with it. – VW express tech, NY

–  crash, Rockford, MI

Solid sturdy construction. Load capacity excellent. Drawers work smoothly and are EZ to remove if required. The 2 swiveled wheels have locks that work very well on my slanted drive way with a very full box. The price I got it for was great. This box is very comparable to other major brand units but has a higher capacity rating than most. Comes with drawer liners. – Bip, San Jose, CA

I bought this roller cabinet to combine three different smaller toolboxes. There was plenty of room to put all of my tools together and plenty of drawers to put all of one type of tool in each drawer (e.g. wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, etc.) I like that the top section of drawers are locked when the top lip is closed. I was impressed with the quality of this cabinet for the price I paid. – Leo, Vancouver, WA

Their First Tool Set: A Rite of Passage

tool box 21-inch

Last month, a friend of mine in Utah decided to buy his two teenage sons each their first tool kits for Christmas. Armed with a Harbor Freight 25% Off Friends & Family coupon, he went up and down the aisles, thinking about the chores his boys might come across, at least in their early lives, and he tossed the respective tools in the basket. Needless to say, the kids were excited when they opened their presents. They weren’t expecting anything remotely like it and, let’s face it, getting a first tool set is a profound rite of passage– for a boy or a girl.

Kids may appear to be smaller than they actually are…

It made me think about my own daughter, Miss D, who turns 20 this spring. For the first time in her life, she’s living away from home and starting to make her own way. Having a tool kit in the apartment surely would have its uses. So, what are the essentials for a basic first tool set for her? Here’s what I came up with, and what I plan to put together for her:

Cordless Drill

cordless drill 3-8 with flashlight

This may or may not fit in the tool box of choice, but it’s essential for the home, what with all the holes and screws in their future. Cordless, of course, so she can take it anywhere without having to drag an extension cord along. I chose this 3/8″ 18-Volt Cordless Drill/Driver and Flashlight Kit for a number of reasons. 1) She won’t be needing a 1/2″ for the tasks she’ll be doing; 2) It’s got plenty of power; 3) it’s rated at “4 Stars”; 5) It’s under $30 for the set. It’s a lightweight, powerful drill with plenty of torque for around-the-house jobs.

Socket Set

socket set 21 pc 3-8 sae and metric

 

Probably just as much as the drill, I can see Miss D running into tasks that require wrenching. A 3/8″ SAE & Metric High Visibility Socket Set makes good sense because of the ease it’ll give her to tighten and loosen nuts n’ bolts. Coupled with a closed-end wrench to hold the other side, fasteners are no chore at all. This particular set is rated at “5 STARS”, has high-visibility markings so she can locate needed sockets fast, and also costs under $30. Like all Harbor Freight hand tools, this socket set has a lifetime warranty and will probably be in her tool box for the rest of her life.

Wrench Set

wrench set SAE 9 pc

I normally like using a ratchet, but when you run into a situation where it doesn’t fit, you need wrenches as a backup. Also, as I mentioned, I think closed-end wrench sets make great companions to socket sets when tightening or loosening bolts. So I’m tossing a 9-Pc SAE Wrench Set and a 9-Pc. Metric Wrench Set— together under $20– into her tool set.

Adjustable Wrench

There are those who argue that if you have these, you don’t need the other wrenches. I don’t belong to that camp. You miss out on the advantageous grip of the closed end and I just like the grip of a stationary wrench more. On the other hand, if none of your sized wrenches fit, these make for mighty fine pinch hitters. I’m giving Miss D this Pittsburgh Adjustable Wrench Set of 4— it’s like having 50 wrenches in one. And I’ll tell her how, when you’re using an adjustable wrench, the movable jaw is located on the side towards which the rotation is being performed. This reduces the chance of backlash. At under $15, this does the trick.

Screwdrivers

screwdriver set 8 pc

 

Although Phillips screws have pretty much replaced slotted screws in the fastener world, 20-somethings planning on dwelling in apartments will inevitably come across older domains with slots, so it’s no biggie to get a 8-Pc. Combo Screwdriver Set, especially with comfortably soft handles and magnetized tips at under $10! The flatheads can also be improvised for other uses like light prying, scraping and nudging.

Claw Hammer

Back in the day, the Old Man used to hammer pretty much everything, not just nails. A good, solid 16-oz. Hammer with Fiberglass Handle is all she’ll need to hang her picture frames, Jamaican masks and balcony lights. And at under $5, it’s a no-brainer to throw this in the kit.

Tape Measure

Whether she’s spacing pictures on a wall, measuring space for a futon or cutting fabric to cover it, a dependable 25′ Retractable Steel Measuring Tape is a must. Carpenter’s marks every 16″ will also help her locate studs and the thumb lock holds measurements in place when she needs it. At under $5, it’ll pay for itself over and over again.

Locking Pliers

locking pliers set of 3

Thinking about how Miss D will often be alone at home while working on projects, I thought she could probably use some locking pliers. They come in handy when you need an extra hand, but only have your own two paws to work with. Extremely versatile, they can be used as pliers, a pipe wrench, an adjustable wrench, wire cutters, a ratchet or a clamp. I chose this set of 3 Curved Jaw Locking Pliers  ’cause they pretty much cover any size job she’ll be facing, and they come with soft rubberized handles which will make it easier to wrench loose the more stubborn nuts n’ bolts. Under $10.00 and also covered with Harbor Freight’s lifetime warranty.

Needle Nose Pliers

needle nose pliers

My daughter likes to work on crafty projects from time to time, which sometimes entails tiny manipulating tasks. Also, there’ll be the occasional task where she has to work in smaller cavities. That said, I thought it would be a good idea to throw these 5-3/4″ Needle Nose Pliers in the tool box for good measure. They’ll also be good for whenever she needs to strip and cut wire (in my day it would have been stereo speaker wire), etc. At only $2, I couldn’t even get a Quarter Pounder for that.

I’m sure I’ll be adding other things as I think of them down the road. Depending on your kids’ interests, talents, vocations or lifestyle, you’ll probably want to deviate from this list a bit. Where you want to follow my lead is to head on over to your local Harbor Freight Tools to gather your tool set. The quality and prices are great, and you can’t beat the warranty on the hand tools!
