This week's gadget is a deal of the day called the Stack-On 18 Drawer Storage Cabinet for $14.99, Dick bought one. These are some of the features: Drawers stay closed with the snap-close drawer System. See-through drawers let you see your parts at a glance. Customizable drawer labels for identification of contents are included. (Both good features.) Easily mounts to wall or stands on bench or counter top. NOTE: Drawer will be harder to pull and push - A little force will be needed to bypass this stay-closed system. (Wow, is that right! So hard to open in fact, that mounting turns out to be a MUST! If the unit isn't anchored down you must hold it in place when you open or close a drawer. Sometimes, when trying to close a drawer Dick pushed it hard and it flew out the back of the cabinet! And not only is there a problem opening and closing the drawers, but worse is that the drawer tracks are so short, the drawers hang down at all weird angles in the back. Be sure to watch the video to see how bad they are! High marks for the way it looks, but the operation is awful. In case you're still interested, the company makes a 24, 40, & 60 drawer version of this. The 18 drawer version is $29.43 on Amazon and they run up to about $42 or so for the largest one. (By the way Stack On makes tons of other storage units without this 'locking feature'!)
