Looking for a tool box - Ron Jr .

A search on Google or Dog Pile for tool boxes. Chances are you'll be able to find the manufacturer that made it for Sears and likely for their own product line also. Sears has never manufactured anything that carries their brand name, so you should be able to find who made it for them.

Good luck


  • Does anyone know where I can find one of these Craftsman

    tool boxes ? Its the tool box on the right , the same one as on the left , but it has a more sturdy top with spaces for solder , screws , flare nuts , Teflon . It used to have 2 clear plastic doors that cover the top , but they broke off long ago . My old box broke on me at the best time - going up the stairs at the end of a long , dirty job . Every tool in the box fell down the full flight of stairs . Ever see a 240 lb. man cry over spilt tools ? I was clicking my heals and wishing I could land home ( didn't work ) . I went to Sears Online , as well as Craftsman , and they couldn't help . There wasn't a model number on the old one at all . If someone is hanging on to a used one that they dont need , I am willing to pay top dollar for it - the old one was a perfect fit for everything I need . Thanks for any help .

    Been there too! find a great product once and then

    looked for a replacement everywhere. I had a great service box that had 3 little draws on bottom, just rite for nozzles, cad eyes, and night service stuff. Been looking for a new one for over a year. Good luck Ron. How about making sheet metal tops with a piano hinge? John@Reliable

    Hey Ron,

    Klein and some other companies have the same box. I use the same one. However, I did see the the one with the top you like just recently, I just can't remember where. I'll remember eventually I'll let you know here or at OTT.

    have a sheet metal guy build exactly what you want. Seems the "trickest" tool boxes and carriers are the ones the tin knockers built themselves. They love a challange in custom bending just as we love a custom boiler install.

    Here's a couple boxes a sheetmetal shop built for me. The left one is stainless, and proved to be be way to heavy! The other is heavy gauge aluminum. Strong enough to stand on! Should last my lifetime and then some :)

    Being a Sears Hardware/ Craftsman NUT...

    I think I can say that Sears has not carried your old style box for at least 8 Years. I once had one like the new one on the left about 9 or 10 years ago and that was the only type they had at the time and I have never seen another one since ( and I go in Sears at least once a month and wonder around). I know Rubbermaid makes one with two small compartments in the lid with individual see thru lids. I have seen this box at Ace hardware and Sears from time to time.

    Otherwise, what I do is use a couple of small parts bins to hold the frequent used little parts and put it in my tool bag.
  • Thank you everyone for the responses

    I got an email from Craftsman , and they did track down the model number , but it was discontinued a few years ago . I sent them the pic of the 2 boxes , and they went above and beyond to find the info . B. Tice , if you do remember where you saw it , I would be forever in your debt .

    Before I started working for Meenan , I had the big red Craftman tool box with 3 drawers on the bottom . It was set up for steam and carried everything from 3 - 18 inch pipe wrenches to a spare torch setup , and weighed about 75 lbs . After my 9 year steam stint was over , lugging that box into basements with one zone water boilers seemed like overkill , so I switched to the tool box I had . That box was only 10 bucks when I bought it . I shoulda bought 8 of em . Thanks again guys .
