Since the rest of the world started it. There's nothing more irritating than the ads changing to whatever I've just looked at on amazon, but I guess this is now the world we live in. I feel your pain.

Do you have a roll around tool box ?

I mean one you can take to the car with 90% of the tools you need in it ?

I know many hate this place but I purchased one of these at Christmas with my card money and I think you would be hard pressed to find a better box for 3 times the money

30 in. 5 Drawer Glossy Red Tool Cart

$169 with coupon and you will need two people to unload and assemble it as it is a heavy thick walled tool cabinet. I read an article where the rollers are much improved over the early models as well. I have no connection with HF....just passing on a deal

I bought this one when it was on sale for $319: 8 Drawer Rolling Tool Cabinet w/ 8 Drawer Top Chest

Unfortunately, the top part was damaged. (Something heavy landed on top of it during shipping or handling by the store and bent it out of alignment.) To their credit, HF gave me a new top and let me keep the damaged one.

I'd love to find something to put the damaged top unit on since it is usable.

This stuff is really heavy, so if you buy bring a friend with you to load it and unload it.

What ads?

https://adblockplus.org

And to those who say ad-blockers pose "moral or ethical" questions...

I say BS - I don't look at ads in my daily newspaper unless I want or chose to.

Ad blockers are the web equivalent.

I don't see any ads here. Kinda feels like I'm stealing.

I do "host list" blocking on my PCs and often use a browser add-on that doesn't allow Java script until I approve it.

A good site for a host list:
Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File

But we need to buy stuff, what would we do with all of the hard earned money if we didn't? Besides forums need to make money somehow
