    So my side locker came yesterday finally and i managed to get it put in place before i left today. Still needs to be bolted on but will deal with that friday when my matco dealer stops in.
    If you cant tell from the picture, i could use the extra storage...

    That's like thinking more potato chips will ease your thirst.

    This should be all i need;)
    I got the middle drawer section 3 years ago. The new hutches are taller than mine. My old hutch and middle drawer are almost the same height as the new hutches so the locker is pretty close in height. It has 3 small drawers on the bottem and shelves on the top. Lot more room that should last me. Snapon has tried getting me in another bigger box, but the extra add on sections are alot cheaper than a new box.

    Yeah... Right.

    I remember selling computers back in '92. I would tell people they came with a 40 mega bite hard drive...That's right... I said 40mb. "That's all you'll ever need"!

    True story.

    Beautiful tool box BTW. (y)

    Exactly what my friend told me when I was buying my wife's business computer. "Anything over 40 megs would be a waste"...

    I couldn’t see paying around $50k for a snap on box. My coworker did but he has no kids, wife or hobby. It’s probably the largest box and hutch with side cabinets you can get from them. It was delivered on a trailer.
