Default Metal Storage Cabinets

Has anyone purchased any new metal storage cabinets?
Where from? what gauge etc?

Looking at needing 2, one for paint etc, another for oil, fluids, sprays etc.

Was hoping to come across used somewhere but haven't had much, if any, success in that endeavor.

U-line has a good selection, but i'd prefer not to pay $400 per cabinet if i can avoid it.

These have a good seal and are approved for storing paints/flammables.*

* EDIT: Not 100% sure. Someone told me this a long time ago.

I use large electrical enclosures also. But they might be a little too industrial for you.

I have one of these that I bought on sale. They have other sizes, but with the sale it was cheaper/easier to buy 1 big cabinet rather than 2 smaller. It's made it through it's first year.

$300 is more palatable than $400.

Still want 2, one on auto side near the lift, another on the woodworking side in the finishing area. But thats the size i was thinking.

We get ours at Global Industrial. Decent prices. Got to watch shipping cost on some things. Mostly good experience with them. They have a large selection.

Free99, a buddy was moving and gave me these "employee lockers" 10-12" by 10-12", I riveted them in two door groups and bolted it to the wall.

New "good" steel cabinets require giving blood, some teeth, and cash.
