    Try to find info on this little chest full of Lufkin precision tools. It says Chicago but Gerstner supposedly made them. They are in Ohio, not Chicago. Any info would be fun to know.

      Your chest was made by National Tool & Chest Co., Star brand. They were offering machinist tool chests from 1940 into the mid 50's. Check out the following web site -
