This tool chest is a basic box on wheels that I use for cabinetry installs and is sized to fit through even a small 24” doorway.
It has hasps to secure the lid to the front panel and bolted on handles to securely lift its 80 lbs. when fully loaded.
Soft rubber wheels were used to make it mobile and to prevent damage to finished floors.
The removable front panel secures all the inside contents but is easily removed to allow access to them.
The top compartment holds the all my batteries, chargers and a power strip along with an assortment of cabinetry installation related tools. The front panel, when removed, acts as a support for the lid which is used as a light weight work surface and to hold additional items within arms reach while working.
The drawer holds the drills both corded and battery powered and the impact drivers along with some jigs like the euro hinge drilling jig and a door handle hole drilling jig. The dividers are adjustable to allow storage of different tools that might be needed for each job.
The lower portion of the chest holds the screw organizers. With over 20 different fasteners related to cabinetry installs these organizers keep everything in order and quickly accessible.
Despite the weight of this tool chest i find its worth the effort to have all of these tools close at hand and easily moved from one work area to the next.
