Craftsman AXS Tool Storage System

craftsman_axs.jpgCraftsman has recently released a tool chest that's so pimped out it needs to be called a "tool storage system." It's loaded with some features that we've never seen on a tool chest, so maybe the name change in appropriate.

For starters, the chest is comprised of a 6-drawer chest and a 7-drawer roll-away (each sold separately). The drawers are on ball bearing slides and the pulls run the length of the drawer. From here things get interesting. The AXS features a LCD display that provides you with the time, date, and temperature. There is a slide out work surface (with a light), and a six-outlet power strip. I addition to all this, there is even a 12-volt power outlet and an optional set of speakers (so we're sure there is some sort of mp3 player hook-up).

The key system is set up in such a way so that you can use your house key to open the lock, reducing the load on your already over-stuffed keychain.

If you own a tool chest or have ever priced one out, you know that they can be expensive items and this is no different. The AXS system costs a combined total of $1300. But when looking at all the features on this set, it's probably not a bad price at all.
