Hi Peeps

I'm after buying a decent toolbox for an ever expanding array of tools.

Can anyone recommend a decent one possibly with wheels

The budget is around £100 but could be stretched slightly :D

Thanks for any help.

One on offer at the moment in Halfords. Six drawer and cupboard, on wheels, £110.00! Bought one a couple of years ago and it has been fine for the price!

Halfords are good quality but wait for the offers as above

Got myself one of these a couple of years back for around £100 decent quality. The top drawers can be lifted off if required.

I've had this one about 5 years & it's been spot-on. https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/ctc1300 ... t-cabinet/

My advice would be to get as I did a second hand snap on box/roll cab which are readily available on eBay. I got mine many years ago before the internet out of The classifieds in the local paper.
Still going strong to this day, I had a Clark one as well but the draws started coming loos and all eventually fell out.

Hi
Snap on I'm afraid are way out of my price range. But I'll keep looking maybe pick up a bargain.

Anyway thanks for all the help, still waiting to hit the buy button....................... :D

I bought a four drawer metal one from somewhere and can barely lift it fully loaded...

Even though I do like Halfords tools the box’s are shite. A second hand snap on box would be similar in cost but last a lifetime.
I always like to teas my mates with my snap on tools, a long screwdriver I found on a job, another that was used to steal my sprinter van but I caught, a 14/15 spanner I found in a lay-by and a set of feeler gauges I got for a couple of squid off eBay cuz they listed them wrong. Anyway how’s the AGM going? Anyone been crucified yet??
