Pg 01 - The Cover

Rev. Nov. 1, 2020 – Pg 03 and Pg 04 changed and Pg 45 added to include Peerless Level & Tool Co. machinist tool chests.


Announcement - My bucket-list contained a desire to assure the longevity of this site for future generations. I’m pleased to say, that has been

 accomplished. The Ohio Tool Collectors Association, https://sites.google.com/site/ohiotool/home , has been assigned rights to ‘The’ 

Guide, thanks to the current OTCA president Doug Gaier. I will continue my involvement as usual..…..Ted


  DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR MACHINIST TOOL CHEST OR CASE – NOTHING, JUST CLEAN, REFINISH OR GO FOR A FULL RESTORATION.  SEE PG 95
