    One distracted moment 2 days ago, and I partially crushed the corner of my Grandfather's old toolbox moving a car. The only reason it is not totally destroyed is it was full of tools at the time. I inherited the tool box over 20 years ago and use it every day until now. My Grandfather passed in the early 1970s, so it is special to me, and I desperately want to restore it, but not sure how or who might have suggestions. I did some online research and found it is from the Park Manufacturing Co., from the 1960s. That is about all I know, other than the company is not in business any more. I know it is stamped steel and welded construction, and I do not want to destroy it trying to take it apart to straighten out the damaged areas. If anyone out there has any ideas on where to start, I am all ears, and deeply appreciative.
    Thanks, Andy.

      Try some good auto body shops. That is just like straightening a fender. But easier since it is all straight lines. I too have driven over a tool box !

      Thanks, slackjack, much appreciated! Was so mad at myself for pulling that boneheaded move I did not think of the obvious. Hopefully you got your toolbox back in usable shape? Thanks, again.
