    Don't have any pics. Belongs to someone who asked me about it. Similar to this, but 7 drawers:

    Mr. Ken,
    Ehlert was big in the hardware business and I’m guessing that Mid-West Mfg. (Majestic) in Chicago were the makers of their cases. I’m not aware that Ehlert supplied any actual ‘chests’, tho they may have.
    Here’s one set of pics for the 18” x 11 ˝” x 8 ˝”, 3/3 drawers, case.

    Guess what, I was wrong in the above posting. Oh well, that’s life.
    American Tool Chest Co., Wauwatosa, WI (a suburb ofMilwaukee), 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/

    Stebbins?

    Here's one that was labelled with a brass tag that says Stebbins Hardware, Chicago, but was most likely an Ehlertbilt chest, according to Ted's research:
