Is this a military tool box?
« on: July 04, 2022, 11:54:23 AM »
Please ignore the Stanley sticker - I'm sure that was added by previous owner.  Could this be a military box?  The latch is similar to another WWII era tool box I have.
Thanks
Al

Could be a toolbox, but back in the day a lot of power tools such as routers and circular saws were sold with metal boxes. They were expensive tools and companies made sure the investment was well protected

Circular saw,  router, or belt sander etc. box would be my guess as well.

Other questions, is the Stanley logo original?  Did Stanley make power tools in that era? (assuming its from 40s or 50s maybe 60s?)

You just need the saw, instructions, and saw guide in order to be in the game!
