I paid more for mine, but it was in better condition...
I'd maybe offer to take 2 of them for $300 and if he declines just pass. People on here have found some for like $50-75, so if you're really patient you'll find some super inexpensive ones.

I paid @$225 for two 5 drawer sections plus base. Needed some handles and one roller missing. But hey for storage it's perfect.

Ignore the Google, read the can. It will also tell you if you need to sand or not.

5 drawer cabinet for 600 bucks...

They look very nice but price-wise seem a bit high.

I'd be much obliged for any advice.

Thanks

I picked up the 46" flat file version of the OP today from craigslist for $100. Took two months of waiting but it eventually popped up for the right price. Thanks for the post OP, I'll be doing a similar project in the spring.

Has anyone priced out having a flat file powder coated?
