Between Dad and myself we have about 6 oldCraftsman boxes, most of them in the 30 year old plus range, and one large Waterloo box. When we outgrew the Craftsman boxes Dad got the Waterloo as a scratch an dent from J&L when they had a store in Charlotte. It is a really nice box and has stood up to near daily use LOADED DOWN with tools.

That said, don't rely on name brands, etc, etc to make a decision. If you look at all of the different brands, nearly all of them are build pretty close to the same way. The biggest difference in them, and to me what makes a box a nice one or a piece of junk, is the drawer slides. The rest is just sheet metal and one pice of metal of a certain guage is just as good as another, regardless of color or what name they give it. So, check out the slides, make sure they look good, slide good, keep the drawer straight side to side as it slides in and out, and don't let the drawer droop at full extension etc, etc. If they are sturdy enough to accomplish those things, and the guage metal used in constructing the box is sufficient to handle the weight your putting in it, then the box ought to be a good one, regardless of brand.
