First, I should emphasize that I am not displeased with this product just yet. Purchased only yesterday, it is a replacement for another Craftsman chest that I received as a gift some thirty years ago, and one in which I had a great deal of expectation based upon that history until lining its drawers last evening. I write this review as admonishment to the potential buyer that we are the final quality assurance inspectors, and I fear the manufacturer may be missing something in production.
You see, out of its box and packing, I discovered the left bottom surface of the second drawer rubbed the top of the third beneath it. Closer inspection revealed the drawer, though evidently uneven, was indeed properly aligned on its slides. Following directions provided, I removed the drawer from the chest and found the problem. The track on the left side of the drawer was welded into an uneven position, and not by a small margin. Specifically, I observed that it deviated from the bottom edge of the drawer by as much as 3/16-inch between its rear and front ends, which is a short span of about 7 inches.
The point is that this mistake is just a bit obvious. It is evidenced in the photograph I have attached to this review. It occurred prior to powder-coating, and persisted through assembly and packing. I am convinced that more than one set of eyes missed an opportunity to catch it, and that mass production lends it to being easily reproduced. More importantly, I regret not insisting on opening the box in the store to catch it, myself.
Now, inconvenienced by this oversight, I encourage you to beware for yourself. Open the box and look before you leave the store!
Take note, also, the slides do not include ball bearings in their design, so load weight will quickly work against them. Be mindful to limit the weight you put into each drawer. A little lithium grease might help with wear that is bound to happen over time.
I really like this toolbox for it's ability to be transported, locked and durable. I have however found it to be a little disorganized. I will now have to buy foam shadow boxes for the drawers, I think it would be much appreciated by many if you offered a deal on the two together. It is great for what it is though.
This thing is heavy. But it is very nice. The fact the trays lock closed when the lid is closed is very nice. I lined all of my trays with the craftsman no-skid liner to try and minimize movement. At a later date i plan to add the craftsman drawer dividers as well. This is very well built.
The 4 drawers are great for viewing tools / keeping them organized. It is a lighter weight chest than I imagined, but I was actually happier with the lighter construction as it will help if I need to move it around. But I really got it to organize some collections of electronics tools in the shop, and I think it will be great for that in a fairly small space.
It would have been much better if one of the four drawers (say the very bottom one) was ?? deeper so that a standard size can of DW40 and other larger items/tools can fit in it. The overall height of the tool chest can stay the same by reducing one of the other drawers (top one) by the same amount.

Weighs quite a bit, but it's very solid. The drawers slide nicely and are a good size. I've read other reviews that express a dislike for the catches because they get in the way of the top drawer: easy solution - leave the latches up and the dangly catches don't get in the way!

I like the 4 drawers; I can separate my 1/2, 3/8, and 1/4 drive sockets into separate drawers. Each drawer will hold a standard and Metric socket rack full of sockets. The top storage holds larger items. And the fourth drawer I use for my ratchets, extensions, etc. All metal and well-built. But the fact that it is all metal adds to the overall weight. And by the time you fill up this box, it becomes too heavy to be easily portable. So either get a 3-drawer, or plastic, or only half-fill this box, or perhaps use it for storage of "light" tools (?). I would not necessarily consider this box "Portable".
