    How about this for a turntable or electronics stand? I'd probably buy it if it was close to me.

    You could put "some" albums inside easily.

    My family's repurposed several old radio/TV cabinets. It's worth the effort. I wouldn't pay 100 smackers for it, that's too much.

    If the veneer is actually wood, and not that weird paper stuff that was popular to make faux fine furniture in the '30s and '40s... I could see paying a hunnert smackers for it -- even though it's naught but an old TV set cabinet. :|

    Plus, you know, there's the Chevy Chase markup.

    Now - I realize this perpetuates outmoded stereotypes... but, still... I found it amusing, so I am gonna share.

    It's a shame Craftsman is just a shadow of what it used to be.
    My dad always had the cheap stuff. I got tired of busted knuckles
    and screwdriver ends breaking and started buying Craftsman
    In high school. I still have a lot of that stuff, with some snap on stuff
    mixed in. About the only things to break were 1/4 rackets and a
    couple of sockets. Yes, I was abusing them. I did finally buy a 1/4 breaker
    bar. My real issue is losing sockets. I found a couple of pawn shops in
    Dallas with loose bins of sockets. I stocked up on 25 cent sockets.
    I also got almost a full set of snap on deep impacts at a buck a piece.
    The odd one missing cost me as much as the rest of the set.
    It's also sad that they don't have the big Xmas tool deals anymore.
    What few they display aren't all that great of a deal.

    Every year I would shop in the tool dept. and leave with a lot of stuff from those Christmas special deals. I always loved their band saws but I just couldn't afford the ones I liked a lot.

    I thought their tall toolboxes with rollers were getting affordable but they closed the one in our mall and I lost interest in those tall rolling toolboxes.

    I bought a NICE classic Delta Heavy duty bandsaw from a Pawn shop for 200.00 years ago. :p

    Anymore, a general toolbox from harbor freight is a much better box.
    I have been thinking about dumping the Craftsman smaller boxes
    For one big one.
    Current tool testing tells it all. Craftsman is just average.
    An adjustable wrench test checked at what point stuff broke.
    They had a classic Craftsman and new one along with other
    brands. The classic outperformed the new one by quite a bit.
