Other features of the present invention relate to the
provision of stop means on the frame engageable with
the drawer as the'drawer is moved to an open‘ position to
maintain the inclined drawer in assembly with said frame
so that it will not fall out of the cabinet.
Other objects and features of the present invention
will more fully become apparent in view of the follow

The drawer side walls 23 and 24‘ have upper drawer side
wall edges 23a and 24a which. comprise runners for. en

drawer in a closed position and for locking the drawer
in assembly with the cabinet when in an open position.
To this end, the side frame members 16 are provided
with hook-shaped tabs 16b adjacent the forward trans
verse frame member E7. The drawer 13 has a pair of
slots 25b adjacent its lower end for receipt of the hook
shaped tabs 16b. The frame tabs 1615 are secured within
the drawer slots 2511 when the drawer 13 is in a closed

in FIGURES 4 and 5. To lock the drawer 1'3 in as
sembly with the cabinet 10, rear edges of the track mem
bers 19 constitute stops 1% which are engageable with
an upper edge 26a of the rear drawer wall 25.
The cabinet 10 and more particularly the drawers l3

the unloading and loading of the parts stored on the
drawers, drawer guards 34 are welded at 35 adjacent
to the drawer runners 23a and 240.
