In my mind, best value would be these:

then throw in Wilde pry bars and scraper because shipping and making them stay screwdrivers.

I have  few of those Proto yellow handles myself and favor them. The only down side to the set shown is all straight blades, no Phillips drivers.

Not a downside if you reread the first post.

Thanks for the validation on the pop rivets.

I'll begin the removal of them for cleaning and ensure they haven't lost any ball bearings, then lube and reinstall. Screws are soooo much faster (obviously).

86 stamped. I should not rely on my memory for more than 4 hours.

Yes, to the ball bearing slides.

Okay, that makes sense.  It sounds right that those are riveted in.  A few years later they're screwed in, at least that's how it works on my KR 637 from '87 and one from '90 (ten drawer top chest)  That's how I found out. 

I riveted in new slides on my '87 box and it works perfect.

And here I was thinking Mary Badham, AKA Scout Finch, who is probably close to some of our ages.

No pics today but i was rebuilding the cyclinder and trying to put the backup ring on and it broke in half luckly we had another one in stock and it went smooth after that got to use the torch heating up the bolt .. Did some practice welds on some iron im rusty after a couple blowouts im ready to stick metal together.. Also pulled in another backhoe that sold and tore the headliner out to find a couple big mice nest in the vents. All the foam was ate and the headliner cracked so itll be getting replacements. I expected to find wires chewed but i couldnt find anything so i got to figure out why the ac light is on...i love a challange

Now, my question on the slides, which desperately need to be cleaned/lubed is that they are pop-riveted in to the cabinet. Is that the norm?

My KRL661 is held in with small sheet metal screws behind the inner slide section. Easy peasy to remove those.

I'm a little confused.  Are you sure that box is 1978?  The logo on the front is the one they started using in the '80s.  The oldest box I've seen that logo on is 1981 according to a guy on Channel 3.  If it's a 1978 manufacture, the slides would be friction but it sounds like you're describing ball bearing slides?
