I just spend a few days refurbishing the wood and putting in new felt, I like the idea of leaving the patina on the woof and metal parts. From what I gather it's from the mid 40s'. Oh, and it's a Gerstner


Back in 1975, I saw one like that loaded with toolmaker's tool, and they wanted $100. I was broke, and only wanted a vernier caliper. Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Beautiful restoration job.
