I’ve been wanting to pick up a old wooden tool box for some time now – Every since I started riding motorcycles it behooved me to keep a complete tool set around. I found this wood toolbox from Craigslist, it's a “Machinist Tool Box” with the green felt. The seller mentioned it was her fathers and he was a long time machinist from back in the days. I have no idea how old this box is or who made it.
The latches on the side are marked “Corbin – Made in USA” other than that no other markings that would give me any identifiable data. Any guesses on age and maker?
I like this enough to keep it “As is” but im toying with the idea of re finishing.
The key looks old and so does all the metal, if I were to guess I would say this was from the 50’s??? Im just happy about the score! Now I have a classic place to keep my tools.
