Just make your own. Way cheaper and you won't get pissed off when you fuck it up. You can use plywood for a top at least 3/4 inch. Use 2X6's for the legs and the frame and screw it all together. Then get a vise and mount it to one end through the plywood.

Kind of like this.

When it comes to pressure washers, I recommend renting a nice one. The few weekends a year I need it isn't worth storing and maintaining one, not to mention I could never afford buy one of the more powerful and higher flow rate machines on my own.

thats exactly what I was planning on. looks good. did you paint/stain it or just leave it raw? hardest part for me will be squaring it up, i suck at that shit!

All mine are Snap On, but they hold the tools that make my living. Only thing is I don't buy new, I wait till I see a repo box on truck then snag it.

My KRL series triple bank new (at the time) was almost $9K, got mine as a repo for $4500, Now they're $12,500 :eek:

Same for my "tool cart"... Holds my most used stuff.. New they're about $3K, again got a repo for $750

Do same for most of my Snap On tools, repo or ebay... Either way same warranty
