    The catches were made by Eagle lock company and are virtually identical. It's just that Gerstner opted to have theirs engraved with their name. The springs will work in either.

    Mark,

    I have put the Jennings box out of my mind and have been laboring on restoring a Craftsman tool chest, made by Union.

    I ended up sending it back at her insistence, now she is balking at paying the return shipping she proposed to pay. What a witch! She's blowing up the Ebay email tool and she makes no sense.

    We need pictures!

    I have not heard of a style 72 and can find no reference to it on the forum. It may be from one of Gerstner's overseas adventures, but I can't be sure until I see pictures of it.
