Gerstner and Sons Machinist Toolbox, Number 42 “Apprentice”

Recommended Posts

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.

Yes ,sometimes even I don't catch the thesaurus spelling correction in time !

It's a nice looking chest ,did it have any original tooling with it ?.

An for $60.00 I'd say You almost stole it ; comparatively speaking for what one would cost down on the West Coast . Excellent acquisition :thumb:

Very nicely done. Those old Gerstner boxes can get pretty doggone pricey. I have been watching the various online sources and they always seem to go fast or for much more money than I am willing to spend or they are just plain beat up.

 

That one looks nice and having the few extras in it made it an even better deal.
