That is huge. Maybe a banks powered rig caught fire.

If it wasn't char-broiled, how much would it cost?

That's all I need, a larger tool box so my son would have more tools to take out and lose. I went out to the garage last night for something, looked at my tool box and bench, was afraid I would cut something off as he has most tools and cutters out and all over.

Good deal for you, I know those big boxes can get into the thousands,

According to the guy I bought it from he said his dad paid $20,000 that seems about right by looking at new ones .

My mechanic bought a Snap-On tool box about half that size for 10k. I told him it was ovious I was paying him too much.

It looks like like I will need a few sliders as the plastic stoppers are melted and the drawers will slide out

Nice score.
I could never justify paying that much when I worked at the dealer. The tool box doesn't make you money. Preferred to upgrade to a larger box when someone traded one in. Now if I had to start over I think I'd buy 3 Lista cabinets and make a 2" angle iron frame for a base and some heavy casters.

I also put all the drawer slides back on and did not have enough good ones for three drawers so left out the three drawers in top middle so I will just have my drills and cordless stuff in there until I can find some slides .

All the slides should still be available from matco, I'd go oem for the price you paid.
