This listing is for a vintage 7 drawer Kennedy machinist tool box in overall very nice condition.
The box was owned by an elderly man who said this box was his grandfather’s and he believed it is from the 1950’s.
The box has the typical brown, hammered-paint that Kennedy is well known for. The box measures approximately 20 inches long, 13 1/4 inches tall and 8 1/2 inches deep. I have not cleaned the box up. It will be even nicer when cleaned.
The box has ball bearing style pull out drawers that work as smooth as the day the box was new.
The leather handle has a split in the leather, as photo shows. It is only through the first layer of leather. I carried the box to numerous locations over the past couple of weeks, full of tools, and the handle is solid. If it bothers you, the handle can be replaced with an original old handle, which show up on online auctions from time to time, or a newer handle. But this one still has plenty of life left in it.
The box has a couple of minor dings but is in overall very nice condition. There is a very small amount of surface corrosion on the bottom which is common for a box this age and could easily be removed with steel wool. It is minor. There is a little bit of tape on the inside of lid that can also easily be removed.
I will include the tools in photos ONLY to buyers who pick up the box from me in Alpena, Michigan. If I have to ship the box, the tools are NOT included.
This is a heavy box even empty. Shipping will be $35 anywhere in Michigan and likely more outside of Michigan.
This is a beauty guys! They just don’t make them like this anymore.
