First off, my apologies for my lack of posts. I have been around, just not posting much. To be honest, I have missed Gmountain quite a bit and have had to accept that he is gone. I hope you all are well.
I have always wanted a Gerstner and Sons tool chest and saw one advertised for $60 on Craigslist.
The gentleman I purchased it from said it was his uncles and said he thought it was a Gerstner and Sons chest. He told me a little about the chest and his uncle, I told him that I planned on restoring it and using it. He said his uncle bought the chest in the early 1930’s, it was marked “3-25-35” in permanent marker.
I called Gertsner and Sons and verified the model and possible year of manufacture.
i hope I did the chest justice as it went through a long tough life. It will sit in my living room and display our small collectibles.
I will do my best to be more active on the Armory.
