New Year - New Box

Postby TheHammer on Tue Jan 07, 2020 10:28 am

Hey folks, since my box took some damage coming back from Tucson last year I am in the market for a new one. Does anyone have recommendations on a good box with wheels that will stand up to airline treatment, without being so big that it costs a fortune (or is a hassle) to check?

We just bought a couple of them from Home Depot (Husky) that would work. We got a large one for cannon gear due to the ability to key and hasp lock it. Gotta keep the powder safe. They come in several sizes. Take your pick :)

Hey Dave:
I had a Dewalt for years but it got damaged going to/from the 2019 Chile International. Those airline folks are really rough on your gear. I got a Craftsman to replace it. It's a little bigger which I like but if it can hold up to the airlines has yet to be determined.
