    Thx for any help.
    Hi horsebroke ... I just read your comment & saw your picture of the clip you need- I NEED ONE TOO, actually I need 3! :O) Did you get any from any of the obviously helpful people on this site??? ...

    If anyone out there can help me with the same type of clip that horsebroke needed (& has a picture of here), I would really appreciate it if you wrote me back. I'd be happy to pay a reasonable amount for the clips & shipping- Thanks Much-

    See post 18. The clip part number is M3163. Horsebroke checked it out and that number is the new redesigned clip. You can view a pic of the clip on the Sears website.

    The tool boxes were most probably made by SPG.
    Was told that they make just about all of the tool boxes out there.
    Here is a link to their site:

    I was poking around the INTERNET trying to find a clip for my 1980 sears tool box and came across this web site. I also need one of those clips that was talked about about in 2005-2007. Does anybody still have any? If so please send me an email. Would be happy to send you a couple of bucks for your trouble.

    Thanks

    ll those old craftsman boxes were made by Waterloo Industries, in waterloo,Iowa. I lived there at that time and I got one of the first newer style boxes in 68. The plant moved out of Waterloo and all that is left is the corporate offices. All the original owners are gone also . Why I know?. I grew up with the family that owned Waterloo Industries, formerly called the Waterloo Valve Spring Compressor Company.Glad to see the clips are still available. I have two of their boxes yet.

    i found a part that will work.... do you have the model number of your base cabinet? Craftman needs a model number so I can order more parts.

    Craftman Part # M3163 SLIDE SPRING

    Cowboy,
    I also have a 70's Craftsman Tool Chest that has two broken drawer slide clips. My gagage has been a mess since that happened and I can't get the drawer back in the chest. The drawer just sits on my workbench taking up needed space. My clip is slightly different that the picture HORSEBROKE posted. If you look at his picture and straighten out the left hand fold and if the length then measures 3" exactly, that would be the springs I would need. The right hand side of HORSEBROKE's clip is identical to my clip. If by chance you have two of the spring I described, I would be more than happy to pay you for them and pay for the shipping to me. My e-mail is: jdm4@me.com
