New Craftsman Shelves
« on: December 08, 2009, 09:03:53 PM »
Did you guys notice Craftsman's new garage shelving? I first spotted it in this year's Christmas tool catalog, and wrote them up on ToolGuyd the other day. (link)

The corner shelving looks very well thought out, but is a bit costly for my tastes.

I like those corner shelves. But my finances at the moment laugh hysterically when ever I think about getting some of them.

It looks as if they would be able to support a decent load.

1000 lbs per shelf, 5000lbs total. I'm not sure if that's the failure load or rated load, though.

That's the problem with Sears they discontinue items right about the time they start to catch on.

I'm getting tired of the black and red combination-  let's see some other color combos.

I do like how you can put the edges up or down.  That's handy, especially for a corner unit

Yellow, blue or green would be nice. My youngest dau told me to say purple as well.

Heck I'd even be happy with classic gray. Any thing to break the monotony.

Additional colors may be available in the future if the shelves sell well.

They did come out with "electric blue" "traffic yellow" and "sunburst orange" storage chests, but they're probably selling very poorly since they're priced a bit higher than the regular black/platinum/red in-store available offerings.

Nope not in the least.  I like the green and yellow tool boxes. I was writing down colors I would like to see when she looked over my shoulder and told me to add purple.

So being the ornery old fart I am I did it.
