Has anyone ever seen or know anything about this late 1950’s Black & Decker Mahogany Power Tool Chest?

Thank you!!

We wish we could help you, but don’t know anything about it. If we lived in SW PA we’d be trying to find out, too! That’s one good-looking tool chest.

Equally interesting are the tools that appear to be in pristine condition. I don’t know much about B&D tools back then. They are probably better made than modern B&D tools are although some of the power tools of that area were downright dangerous because they did not have some of the saftey features that modern tools have. If that was in my area, I would be curious enough to check it out.

I don’t know anything about one of these tool boxes but I sure do wish that I had one of ‘em.

Its similar to Gerstner. I would buy it just to see what all is really in it. I like things like that. Sometimes the surprise is underneath the things people show that THEY think are important. I have bought some cool things at auctions like this !
