This is one of my favorite finds throughout the years. I believe this was from a Montgomery Wards employee who worked as a pipe fitter or something and the company made and issued him this beautifully made wooden case with three insert tool trays. They turned the old Montgomery Ward building in Portland into apartment lofts and commercial business space a few years ago. Someone trucked this case around for many years, they don't make stuff like this any more. Back when American made meant it would probably last forever if you took care of it.
