Why did the Craftsman 4, WEN 73015 and Craftsman 6 cases make my top 3?
I have to say that the Montezuma SM200B (check its video tutorial, by the way) is also a great pick, just as Goplus 6 or any other item I’ve included to this list. After all, the guide’s title is 5 best mechanic boxes for instruments. I just have a few expert features that matter to me more than the design or capacity when I check a new kit before buying.
All models from my personal top 3 share the same features I really appreciate in such gear for mechanics:
- Made of metal (plastic is good only when you need a portable box), preferably stainless steel;
- The storage capacity is awesome (16 inner compartments is my required minimum for the kits that I don’t usually transport);
- The simple but reliable locking system;
- The classic red design (I simply can’t resist it, though the look is not the most important thing to look for);
Check the reviews posted on this website if you require the boxes for specific needs or you just bear great practical gift ideas for a mechanic; though don’t know where to begin your search. I post only unbiased guides based on my research of U.S. available boxes for instruments.
