    Score!

    I got this little Stanley "toy box" as partial payment for that trestle table base I built, and showed everybody last week.

    Documentation shows it was made in 1922-23, and it's absolutely complete, including the original instruction book, catalog, and several other Stanley brochures. Most of the cutters have never even been out of their boxes! It even has the original screwdrivers with it. The box is a little worn, but that the only fault I've found.

    I'm pretty stoked with it!
