This vintage "Neslein" Engineers Tool Chest, of 8 drawers, comprising 5 short and 3 long is in "as found" condition. The cabinet is made from solid oak and has a great patina and depth of colour, developed over the years.
The back is veneered plywood. The bases of all the drawers are lined metal and look to be brass, one of them has a small hole (see images). Internally it could do with cleaning and maybe relining. The cabinet has been well used over the years.
I have given it a bit of a gently clean up and beeswax. The inside i haven't touched. The front has had some small repairs done to it but it locks and works perfectly well. Loads in there, every drawer is crammed and it makes the whole thing quite heavy.You will have to zoom right into the images to see what is included. Lots of Moore & Wright, Starrett etc precision tools. The leather carrying handle is well attached and secure. Some pitting to the metalware. The "Neslein" transfer to the front door has some rubbing but still clear, the one to the large drawer inside is very faded. It measures 46 cm (18 inches) wide, 19 cm (7 1/2 inches) deep and stands 31 cm (12 1/4 inches) tall. Please study all the images very carefully as they form an important part of the description. Items are always packaged extremely carefully.
I may well split this into 2 packages, one for the tools and one for the cabinet.
