Old Sears box. Friend’s Dad’s box who was a machinist for National Cash Register in Dayton. Was full of tools from the 60-70s. Guessing at age due to vinyl handle. Saw one on internet, but is rare in good shape. Cleaned it up with Acetone, re-glued a lot of the finger joints and polished the drawer knobs. The rest of the hardware was too far gone to polish so I painted. Refinished oak wood with amber shellac and repaired felt liners. Came out clean and restored, but left the character and history of his Dad’s legacy.
