    It came in quite handy today, I might try to rig up some actual pneumatic tires on it though. The stairs outside are open faced so the little plastic ones worked meh.

    My very first tool set was similar to that. I got it back in 1998ish back when all Craftsman hand tools were still actually made in the USA. I still have a good bit of the sockets, but the plastic case is LONG gone. I still have the ratchets, or else I have Craftsman ratchets that are about 20 years old. I can't say for sure if they are the original ones that were in that set or not. Lol
    I ended up giving them to my 18 year old son and I an trying to get him to start building a tool collection.

    I'm on the same hunt here as you... I've finally gotten to the point where I have enough tools to require a box to organize them in. Thank you all for the recommendations, they are all pretty helpful as well as these reviews https://mentoolbox.com/good-tool-chests/ . I'm looking for something light with tons of pockets, splays out when you unzip it, and durable.

    Toolboxes have wheels for a reason
