You have to go into the individual categories to get the specs... such as "Storage Cabinets" or "Base Cabinets."

The sizes are listed on every cabinet on the site. Just click on the one you want to know about.

The info is there for the Classics but not the Magnums. Dean from Saber was very quick to respond with email. The Classics and the Magnums are the same size.

Gotcha.

Sabre Magnum Cabinets

"Saber Magnum cabinets will have same size
specifications as our current (Saber Classic Line)."

Right there in the middle of the page.

I would love to purchase some of these but the Canadian equivalent gets pricey.

bdamico -

What brand of tool box do you have and how is the color match? I've been looking at the Extreme and Montezuma rolling tool cabinets and am hoping for a good match if I decide to go with the blue as you have... otherwise I may hold out for all black.

I am wondering the same thing. How do they hold up? Still pleased about your purchase? Anything you are disappointed about?

Question Re: Blue Saber Cabinet Install / Review

Looks great. Did you end up having to move all those cabinets out of way to build the soffit over the top??

BTW, the soffit storage and excellent slider doors turned out primo excellente !!

Also, what was overall investment you put into cabinets??

BD - I am about to order phase 1 of my garage cabinet needs since they now have black available. A couple of quick questions for you:

1) How long did it take to arrive once you ordered?

2) You are 8-10 months in now, how are you liking them, and how are they holding up?

I'll be wall mounting all of mine (I hate stuff on the floor), and these look pretty darn sturdy.

Seeing this thread several months ago pretty much convinced me to buy them, and when I saw they were coming in black... well, 'nuff said.

I realize it wasn't directed at me but my initial SMU-20 (upper) only took 3-4 days. I am just placing the order for the rest of mine today and the quote is 3 days from NV to OH.

I will probably start my own Saber cabinet thread once I get the rest of them just so people can find more info. Other than this thread and the limited website there isn't much out there and that was my biggest concern before ordering. From the couple emails and phone calls I've exchanged with Dean he seems like a decent guy and the cabinets seem pretty nice for the price. I am excited to get the rest of my order into the garage.

Good info, as mine will ship to Columbus, OH, so it sounds like a good range. I'll be sure to look for your thread. and I'll likely start one of my own...

I've got to set this thread up to let me know when people post. These cabinets are great. No problems. They're heavy gauge steel. There wont be any problems. They're not going to warp or peel or whatever. I built the soffit right on top.

The soffit is designed to support itself but it was built right on top of the cabinets and I guess transfers weight to the floor through the cabinets. This is part of the reason I went with legs even though the cabinets are wall mounted. Otherwise, I would have just hung them and called it a day.

Shipping -- can't recall. I waited a long ass time for these--but that's because I wanted them before they were available and waited I think 10 months for them to be done. But, once he had them in stock it was a quick few week turnaround.

Anyone with doubts--no need. Not much alternative in this price range for something that comes close enough to the high end stuff for me not to spend over 10k on cabinets (and I'm the kind of guy who would). And leaps and bounds above stuff in the lower price ranges.

I can't recall cabinet prices -- maybe $3k shipped?

Suppose I could start a Black Saber cabinet thread, but this should suffice. I'd second bdamico's experience as well. Recently completed installation of a fair amount of storage in shop. Very good quality...(bolted or not)... Huge storage in wall cabs. Finish very good.

Dean very good to do business with., good communication throughout. It was a fair wait, but I wanted Black, which were still being fabricated when I initially made contact.

Very pleased...

Those look really good. You should get some pics hosted so we can see them better -- what'd you do to support the storage cabs -- looks like your drawers are wall hung

The black looks very nice. Had the silver been available at the time, I probably would have gone silver.

One thing I did is buy some Neodymium Magnets off amazon for my upper cab doors to give the closure a little more high end feel.

Every once in a while I get a pm asking if my review of these cabinets has changed with the passage of time. It has not. They have held up perfectly. No issues with the paint, finish, latches, anything.

So I'd still give them a solid recommendation
