Finally got some time to go over the manual regarding this miter box and compare it to the actual piece. It looks to me like it’s complete and pretty much immediately usable once I sharpen the saw. I’m kind of torn whether to repaint it. Most of the gray paint is intact once I got through the dirt with a gentle brass brush. The chrome has flaked off a lot of those parts, but the whole piece is only suffering from light surface rust. I like the patina of used tools.
We’ll see how I feel when I get out to a place that sells the appropriate paint. Looks to me like what I’d call Christmas tree stand red and primer gray.
