I work at Lowe's and just had to assemble some Craftsman tool chests yesterday. They are all the same. Thin, flimsy metal. Every display I've built has been damaged by dents and bends out of the box. If you are just a massive fan of Craftsman, you may like this. Otherwise, Craftsman makes cheap stuff and their storage cabinets are no exception when it comes to build quality. This isn't bad if you need something small, quick, and easy. Just understand what you are getting and apply it to your needs.

$184 is probably the best current price for a usable cabinet which can actually hold a decent amount of tools. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky...R2UE0grRc0

It's 2400 sq. inches larger with 100 lb rated drawers vs the weenie 30 lb. drawers on this Craftsman.
There's another way of looking at this.

For nearly the same money as the $184 Husky, you could get two Craftsman cabinets, which gives you the same total weight capacity (1000 lbs), more storage (3642 cu in), and butcher block work surfaces on each.

Even the Craftsman is made with thicker steel, 20 gauge vs 21 gauge for the Husky.

Just depends on drawer weight storage for your needs, but with 2 Craftsman, you can split your tools more evenly with 8 drawers, vs only 5 drawers with the Husky.

Have you actually handled both of these boxes? I would question 20 gauge of the Craftsman. There might be some 20 gauge on it somewhere but it's not in the drawers. They're just slightly thicker than a Coke can and about as sharp.

You're correct about the Weight of the tools. If you're into scrapbooking, those Craftsman drawers will be fine for scissors, glue sticks and fabric, etc.

If you want to store Mechanics tools: racks of sockets, wrenches, breaker and pry bars. you'll want the Husky because it can handle the weight.

I went into Lowe's to look at this and the other craftsman combo set. Overall, it looks cheaply made. The drawers are flimsy and wobble easily. The sheet metal it was made of also seemed relatively thin... I had to pass...

I totally agree with this assessment. I went to see it and felt it wouldn't last a year
