    Excellent quality. All best grade steel made on craftsmans industrial line supposedly. I can send a link to sets I bought

    No problems with Snap-On warranty here. I've called and had a couple very old items replaced no questions asked. Sent me a ratchet rebuild kit and a brand new screw driver that I broke the tip off. Just call them from the website. Obviously they have to mail it, but still hassle free. They didn't even want any old parts sent back.

    Re: Harbor Freight Tool Box

    I used to love craftsman. The stuff I have from 20 years ago is great. Any hand tools I've bought in the last 5 years have been junk. My wife got me a nice tool box with ball bearing slides, and it's held up well. I probably buy a matching top before they're gone. Especially after this was announced: Stanley Black and Decker Buys Craftsman

    Most of the tools that I need sparingly, or are some sort of one-time-use specialty item come from HF or Northern tool. Both sell decent stuff, that gets the job done. I'm sure the same can be said about their tool boxes.

    ^^^I'm pretty sure a lot of their tool as of recently, before the acquisition, are already made from Stanley.

    I just went and looked at the US General toolbox at Harbor Freight this evening. The drawers are not quite as smooth as the more expensive ones but the cabinets feel heavy and good quality. I will probably pick one of the $329 boxes up. Didn't have my truck tonight.

    Northern Tool has a sale right now and they usually have better quality than HF. Im thinking about getting this work cart.

    Ironton 4-Drawer Tool Cart — 500-Lb. Capacity | Work Carts| Northern Tool + Equipment

    This one looks equivalent to the OP's HF chest

    While I did mention master force tools, their boxes are also decent quality from the reviews.
