Swivel toolboxes officially on our holiday wishlists

Tool boxes haven't changed much over the years, and even the bottom-rung outfits look a lot like the high-rent tool cubbies. At least that used to be the case before the Swivel tool box hit the market. This 60-inch tool storage system contains rounded, high-strength drawers that swivel out so its owner can better-access his or her equipment. And, of course, "high-strength" is a relative term, but in the case of the Swivel box we're talking about 2-, 14- or 16-gauge steel, and the drawers are reportedly tough enough that most humans (now there's a relative term...) can stand on them without breaking anything.

If you've ever owned a tool box, especially the low-end models, you know that the tracks get gummed up over time, making it more and more difficult to slide drawers open or closed. The drawers of the Swivel bench are hinged at a steel pole that is reportedly impervious to dust.

So how much will a Swivel bench set you back? Try between $1,000 and $5,000; a total that puts the Swivel bench squarely in the professional grade category. That's probably a bit rich for our blood, but it won't keep us from wanting one.
