When I buy new I go the Craftsman route for the warranty and price. I do have a decent stash of Snap On tools that I've managed to get cheap off of Craigslist and at pawn shops

I rather like the one Infantry has. Decent price, sturdy, 100lb per drawer (methinks).

I use Matco. Got their set when I was in school because their quality is close to Snap-On and they carry the same warranty...as well as they were about $800 cheaper for everything including the box. Did buy a nice dead blow hammer from Snap-On though, love their hammers.

I got that box for a little more than $500. Dual ball bearing drawers, and they are rated 100lbs per! Cant beat that!

As long as it's a ball bearing tool chests. They can take the weight and abuse. worth every penny.

I personally go with Kobalt for the reasons in the link.

Still using my Craftsman sockets, screw drivers, wrenches, torque wrench and pliers originally bought when I was in college back in 1991. Never had to take advantage of the warranty. Will probably hand them down. All the tools I buy now are Harbor Freight, and I just split a deep impact socket just last month after maybe the 4th time using it.
