Model 041c H Gerstner & Sons 7 Drawer Machinist Tool Chest Jewelry Box Dayton Oh:
Gerstner Tool box made in Dayton Ohio
Model 041C. Probably made in the late 60's or 70's.
This was originally leatherette covered. Its made of poplar. Most of the leatherette covered boxes are.
it measures 20" x 9.5" x 12.5"
You can see in the pics of the beginning, after stripping the leatherette & sanding.
I cleaned the oak fronts of the drawers with Gerstner cleaner/restorer.
I sanded the entire box, stained it black & then finished it with a linseed oil & paste wax mixture I made.
All the hardware is original. I soaked it in vinegar to remove the rust. Some of the nickel plating is missing as seen in one of the pictures. The hardware is finished in the linseed oil/wax mixture as well.
The Gerstner tag on the bottom drawer is new from Gerstner.
All the felt has been replaced with Gerstner felt
I repainted the mirror frame.
There is a key included I don't have pictured. Its new from Gerstner
