A different tool box
« on: January 14, 2022, 06:10:15 PM »
I got this toolbox at auction because I wanted a wrench in it and it was sold as a box lot.  It was cheap probably because it was all oily inside.  Everything in the box was 1920's or slightly later, and then when I got it home noticed the toolbox.  The handle is marked F3333M, and I have no idea what it was originally. The toolbox is 20" long, 7" wide and 7" deep and weights 20 pounds empty since it is made from 1/8" sheet steel.  It is all riveted together, no bolts or welding.  All the corners are rounded so it is obvious that a brake was not used.  I will keep it as I have never seen anything similar.

Yes, I also like the envelope fold on the end, that is what convinced me to keep it.

What I was after in the box was a double bend Walden 1/2" drive breaker bar from the 20's.  I collect Walden and in 25 years had never seen one like it.  Also a 20's snap-on breaker bar, 10 model T ford wrenches including a hub puller and the list goes on.
