    Those US General Series 2 boxes are nice. I was checking them out last time I was at HF, super heavy and they seem to be pretty comparable minus the add ons and depth. I think thatll be my next big one unless I can find a cheap truck brand box on craigslist.

    A coworker buddy bought a used cordless DeWalt wet dry shop vac for $35 ... included battery. Great way to vac the floors of the cars, shop bench, etc .... without dragging out the corded big vac, hoses, attachments, etc.

    Well, since I have some Craftsman 19.2 Volt tools, I decided to try and find the equivalent. They're not plentiful & too expensive (compared to his $35 score).

    Found this "Set" on Craigslist 2 hours away for the price of just a used wet/dry vac.
    Rode the motorcycle down and loaded it all in the tour pak & rear seat (with cargo net).

    Wet/Dry Vac, hand vac, flourescent lamp, sander, hammer drill, regular drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, 3 lithium-ion batteries & charger. ... & bag.

    Slightly more than I wanted to spend (duplicated some I already had) but just the vac, batteries & charger was worth the price. I consider the tools to be free.
    As I age, I find convenience is more valuable than when I was younger.

    I have a couple 2X10s too (old scaffolding planks) . I built a 65' X 12' deck with some of them.
