American Tool Chest Co., Wauwatosa, WI (a suburb of Milwaukee), has been added to Pg 40 of ‘The’ Guide. It was formed in 1920 by John H Ehlert and burnt down in 1921. This also answers questions about Ehlert Hardware and Ehlertbilt machinist tool cases.
Also, I have rearranged the manufacturer’s listings on Pg 01 to a chronological order, earliest start-up at the top down to the latest at the bottom. Why? Just something I’ve been wanting to do for more order and it’s been a boring winter. Have a good one………Ted https://sites.google.com/site/theguideforwoodmachinistchests/

Well, guess what. Another revision on July 5th for ‘The’ Guide for wood machinist tool chests. https://sites.google.com/site/theguideforwoodmachinistchests/ We just keep pounding away and it’s getting better and more accurate with each revision.

Rev. July 5, 2018 - Revised Pg 11 to show 1914 full face front panel chests. Also, changed Pg 06 to ‘Explaining Non-Standard Production’.

We average about 450 hits a month of which about 300 are actual users spending over 20 minutes each, on the average. Check it out, it’s a challenge………Ted

Very cool. Also really useful for anyone contemplating building one.

Edit : I see you are a member here -- ever think of adding the link to the Members Websites on the main forum page? If it's not a conflict in any way, that is? Just a thought.
