Vintage Snap On toolboxes


Well-Known Member
Whats up everyone, I juat graduated the Fab School and am looking to start accumulating tools. I have been looking around at different tool boxes and I found this pretty nice looking vintage snap on. The guys asking 399 for it. I just wanted to see what your guys thoughts are on buying old tool boxes like this. Is it worth it or should I buy something newer? Thanks!

Congratulations on your graduation. I say if you like it get it. Hopefully all the drawers work and such. Don’t know any prices or how boxes compare. I’m just saying.

You should do well with those. I have three Snap On boxes, one of them is a KRA59, a later version of the top box in the listing. It's a tank. For $400 it's not a bad deal. It would be a good starter box. At some point you'll need something with wider drawers, 32" to 40". Right now though for basic hand tools that would be a good box as long as it's as advertised.
