Working with Hands - James E. Price


 
  Stanley No. 55 Case  


If you own a Stanley 55 and all its parts, you have probably been frustrated on the best way to store it so you don't have to put it together each time you use it.

Someone, probably a finish carpenter, many years ago arrived at a solution to the problem and built a box to efficiently store his 55 with all its parts and cutters.

He even stored the instructions on how to set it up and use it behind some screen molding in the lid. I am posting this for all of you to see and decide if you would like to make a similar case.

The case has a leather carrying handle so it can be easily transported or stored away from dust and moisture on a shelf in your shop.

This original box and its contents were donated to The Heritage Shop at Ozark National Scenic Riverways, National Park Service where I teach volunteers traditional woodworking.

It once belonged to Bruce Debo of Devils Elbow, Missouri and donated by his heirs.
