Dating gerstner tool boxes

So what makes these tool boxes a legend with machinists?

They are not that cheap, and it seems like there are some nice options when you get into that price range. It does look like some of there top boxes have a lot of small drawers that could be useful. So what makes these tool boxes a legend with machinists?

I've a wack of them, they good not amazing and as you say expensive....I'm not sure what is a better alternative .

Big heavy stuff is in a couple of lista's and there's a red home handyman special stacked roll around (canadian tire) that actually has been ok. They needed some cleaning and adjustments, but they're now fully functional, and all those little shallow drawers just beg for precision tools.

imo the Kennedy is not so much hype or culture BS but that its ok value -surely a lot better value than Strap-On lol One thing special is that older ones do show up at yard sales, etc. Mine are close to 40 years old and they still function as well now as when they were new.

I started with the 11-drawer 'top box' and then ran out of room, and bought the 36" Roll away.I then filled that up, and bought the 7 drawer middle riser box.There are also side boxes, shelves, big roll around carts, stainless boxes, and every other bell and whistle available. While they're good boxes (and I have several) the reality is that when you start in the trade everybody else has one and you feel compelled to get one to fit in.Besides that, Kennedy boxes seem to be made with better quality. Anything else would work just fine but you'd look stupid with a Crapsman or something.I actually prefer the Mechanics top boxes to the Machinists top chest, as the drawers are bigger. The newer ones are nicer than the ones built from the early 80's to the early 90's.
