    I fall more into the functional bunch (although I have several Gerstners). As a retired toolmaker my Gerstners are not just a tool box but also a "statement" that I'm serious about the trade and take...

    I'm still here as well, also checking in a few times a week. I was posting more regularly when I was building my kit chest and base or refelting 2 Union boxes.

    I have a style 42 in mahogany. I think all of the Starrett labeled boxes were also mahogany, and the 52 as you know could be had in mahogany. You may have been able to custom order what ever model...

    I'm pretty sure your box is a O-62. Drawer count is different on a O-82 (where you have a group of 8 narrow drawers in the upper area, the 82 has 6 because the lowest drawers are your 2 lowers...

    Hi, welcome to the forum! Your coming 42 does look to be in nice shape. I have an identical chest also in mahogany. No idea on a value. Basically it's worth what someone will pay. Nice find.

    The "top well" is 10 1/4" X 16 1/2" . The old model notation made it more clear. The 1605 and 1607 chest were called 35A and 35B the bases were B35A and B35B. I've photos of both in the finished kits...

    Both the B1803 and B1804 are made for either the 1605 or 1607 chest kits to sit on top of them. There is no top well, hence no dimension. A top well is what is exposed when you open the top lid of...

    I hope that was helpful. I would love to see photos of your 52A project! In process and complete would be cool. I've done the 35A chest and the B35A base. I've been curious about the 52A kit.
