    Here’s my old Wooden Machinist Tool Chests collection. They are all 7 drawer chests made 100 years ago. I have two Gerstner’s, two Union’s, one Pilliod and one Wedell & Boers. I’m still looking for a Mid-West Mfg. chest to complete my collection. This hobby is expanding because of a new forum, wmtccc.proboards.com, to help identify and date these boxes. Have a good one….Ted

      Here are two websites that will definitely help you with this hobby. If you’re seeking to identify the maker, style # and/or when it was made go to this site - https://sites.google.com/site/theguideforwoodmachinistchests/
      If you wish some information help to refinish, restore, find some parts, etc. or still have questions from the above go to this forum site - http://wmtccc.proboards.com/
      Hope this helps and enjoy……Ted
