Well my friend bought a chinese knock off that is daimond plate trim, the box is outragusally beautiful with full roller drawers. In fact he wants to sell it to me for 600.00 so he can buy a bigger, if you are intrested i'll take some pics. and get the manufacturer. I'm thinking i will buy the buy the box beause it will fit inside my Haulmark between the cabinets

I have a Snap-On box for sale.
Up for sale is an brand-new, never used. Snap-On tool box.
The retail cost for this box is $5995.00. Here you can purchace it for $3700.00 or best offer.
Anyone familiar with the brand will know Snap-On is probably the best tool seller on
the market and the rolling boxes pretty much last forever.
The box is about 73 inches long and 24 inches deep with 18 drawers for tool storage.
I would keep it myself, but I dont have enough tools to fit it.
PM me if you are interested or you can reply here.
Here is a "borrowed" picture of the box. The only real difference
is my box has the stainless steel top.

BTW, I know you said "other than snap-on". Just thought I'd put it out
there for you.

Sorry it took so long to get back on this i've been out of town and the guy that owns the tool box has been out of town also.
But i did find out that it came from Sams Club, in Monroe la. I took pics. tonite, it's 100% stainless with full roller bearing drawers. It includes honey combed drawer pads (dirty in the pics. due to doing body work in the shop) An educated guess being a machinest all my life (finger feel)it's .043 stainless, dim. are 41" wide 18" deep and 61" tall with casters. It is a beautiful box. You decide, with pics. below. It cost $750.00 plus taxes, 2 times bigger box cost $1500.00 also at Sams Club, the smaller one will fit in my Hallmark 28 ft. inclosed between the cabinets in the front.

Zip.
