While these are not the same as 'the old red toolbox' that your dad had, they are a good bargain for the price. The steel stock is slightly less thick than the 'old school' metal boxes, so falling from a height with tols in is will certainly deform the corners, but I do not plan on dropping it. I bought this when I could not find a good metal tool box for my electronics tools at any of the chain stores in my town. I specifically wanted metal because the previous two have been plastic and both have broken easily, making another plastic toolbox seem like a bad idea. This tool box is not too large for storing, but it is bigger and is much sturdier than its plastic predecessor. The tray is well made and fits in the box without a struggle, and the dual front latches work very well. If I have any reservations at all it is that The hinges are a tad flimsy, so I take care not to bump the top when it is open. I cannot complain too much about the hinges though, as they are certainly better than the plastic junk made on most big box store tool boxes.
