This is a bit of a cross post. I picked up my first wood machinist chest this week. I've been told it is a Star brand made by National Tool and Chest Co of Chicago, IL. From some pics I've seen I believe that's the case but google searches haven't provided much of any details regarding historical information on Star and/or National Tool and Chest Co. That's what I'm hoping to find here. Any tips, details, links or recommended searches would be much appreciated. I'm also wondering what period my chest would have been sold. If anyone is aware of any online catalogs listing Star chests that would be great and if that included pics all the better.


Here's my new chest.
