Shame about the damage though, looks like it was a pretty crappy casting.

It’s only something to look at and not to use. I don’t have much room left in my shop. Think I will save the free space in my shop for something else.

No, I think it's just a display piece now, it looks like that body casting would take very little persuasion to totally come apart.

You gotta love those tools though. "Made in Japan" by Marx. Definitely from when "Made in Japan" meant cheap crap. And I loved Louis Marx company when I was young. They made the best plastic soldiers and play sets like the western fort, castle, etc. Most probably from the early 1960s.

Maybe I should buy it, since we share the same last name! :D On second thought, I don't really want my name on something done that poorly.
