Found this at the curb set out w/garbage. Someone said it use to hold old radio bulbs/tubes. Got to decide what to do w/it. I think it's really cool. Any thoughts as to age/use? Dunno what handle is made of.

    Very neat, Back in the day this would have been what a T.V. Repaiman would have carried with him when the company sent him to fix their equipment (Yes , they made house calls) this would have enough tubes and other items in it to facilitate a repair of the most troublesome parts.. Someone that is into doing old Radios and / or T.V.'s would love this....I'd say E-Bay !

    Personally, I would look for an old tube tester and tools of the trade; find some RCA radio tubes still in the box and fill the tool kit. This item can only go "up" in value. Great find.

    Thank you . Will keep an eye out for radio tubes. I'm glad I saved it from the dump.
