I just got one of these, complete except for the original box. Could somebody with one take some pictures so I can see how all those odd-shaped pieces are stored? Also, can you give me inside dimensions? I don’t know what era it’s from, but the cutter box has a wood bottom; the front section is a single piece of wood with a deep kerf cut in it (complete with V-shaped bottom) and the rear section is more like half a front, with filler pieces in the ends of the kerfs, nailed together, with an orange cardboard top.

My camera battery is charging but the box dimensions are 12Lx5.75Wx6-1/8”H.
It’s fingerjointed and the wood is 1/2” thick. Bottom is nailed on and is about 5/16 thick. Lid slides in a groove so inside eimensions would be 11Lx4.75W and approx 5.25” high.

If you’ve got orange cardboard on your cutters, your plane might have come in a cardboard box too.

Mine came in a pasteboard box. I keep it in a less fragile box. I’m making a 12×12x7 inside dimension box to store it and the cutters.

The original is 7.25×11.5×5 inches.

Are there any cradles or grooves, etc. to hold the pieces in a certain arrangement? No part of it sits very stably on its own and the odd shapes take up a lot of space.

There aren’t any separations. The plane is disassembled when stored. The box I’m building will have space to store the plane assembled and keep the other parts secured separately.
