Though you don’t hear of Kennedy much around the garage-shop circuit, it’s a common name among machinists. (I have a very old Kennedy machinist’s chest that belonged to my father, for example. It needs a good cleaning up, but it’s still in one piece and all the drawers/doors move smoothly.) What you see above are Kennedy’s Pro-Line series — high-gloss powder coated finish, welded steel construction, ball-bearing drawer slides, and roller-bearing casters, plus a replaceable MDF top work surface.
Kennedy offers a variety of models, none of which come cheap. The baseline seven-drawer model, which forgoes drawers on the right side for a single large door and a shelf, starts around $900. The high-end 12 and 13-drawer models can easily bust $3,500. And while that might sound a bit pricey to the Craftsman type, it’s not out of line compared to the truck-marketed tool brands.
Anyway, if you get a chance you might want to check out the rest of Kennedy’s line. I was surprised to see that they still sell a machinist’s chest pretty similar to the one I have.
