not only is craftsman now made in china but i looked at their toolboxes a week ago and like the previous poster said anything that is "similar / comparable" price range is garbage from craftsman, the craftsman ones are so "flimsy" and are not as solid. The metal / construction they used on their boxes is down there with the harbor freight ones, the bearings also dont slide as smooth, craftsman has just turned into a mess (what a shame). the Husky tools chests are soso, presonally the Kobalt is better built as its more "solid" and surprisingly the trinity chests (costco) are even more solid but less drawers.

I think the Kobalt is better built than the Craftsman boxes I've looked at in this price range. This Craftsman combo usually goes on sale for around $700 numerous times per year so would be a good comparison size wise but I haven't seen it in person:
The only reason I'm hesitating on the Kobalt is that its stainless which tends to look like crap after a while.

How does Kobalt stack up against craftsman or any other tool box? I'm not a mechanic, but looking for something to house my tools that's more organized than the small tool box i have from home depot. Seems like a lot of money....

|XeoNoX||i went to go check it out but they lowes didnt have it on display. i know the costco one is rock solid and well built, not like that craftsman ones that feels like sheetmetal.|

|eric102||Looks like the Kobalt weighs about 60 lbs more and is only 1 " deeper. Height and width are the same.|

If the quality is similar I think I would chose the Kobalt (20 drawers) since I prefer not stacking tools on top of each other.

this is looking good too for $849

|cnbcook||I assume this is the 41" set since the drawer count matches up. Absolute perfect timing! Thanks!!!|
