    Had this Hon brand 42" by 72" lateral file cabinet given to me.
    They couldn't get the drawers to open.
    Mechanism that prevents you from opening two at the same time is off and has to be manually disengaged to open even one.
    Not an issue for me, but may delve in to see if I can fix it.

    Pretty sturdy. Drawer fronts can come off to be used as a basic shelf that slides out.
    Also has a slide out work surface, but that's pretty flimsy. Might could reinforce it with wood.

    Now all of my air and electric tools and blades, bits, etc have a home, and not just strewn about the floor. Pretty stoked about not tripping over those anymore.

        I bought 6 of these from Craigslist here for 100.00. All lock and have them bolted together and also to the wall. Thieves better be strong

              I have the exact same one, and another that the top 2 "bins" have dual sliding shelves. When the bottom drawers are closed, that metal drawer above the 3rd drawer from the bottom pulls out to serve as a small workplace... Nice cabinets, I love mine & they were free from work. 20210914_200121.jpg

                  I can pull that "writing surface" out no matter what on mine.

                  I actually used it to write on last night as all my other horizontal surfaces were full of crap.

                  That is a constant issue with me, so I guess I'm actually happy that surface is not fit to hammer on. etc.

                  I'd probably take half a dozen more if they were free/cheap.

                  There is a used office furniture store local, but they want crazy prices. CRAZY.

                  I know this stuff is not cheap. but definitely not in my budget to buy retail, used retail, or likely even wholesale.
