I purchased these 2 old boxes recently at a tag sale.
I liked the joinery and the handles.
I want to strip them down and restain them, repaint the hardware.
The lock part is screwed on, easy enough.
The handle part seems to be riveted on, dont know how I can get the handle off without breaking it.
Any help? clues?
I believe they were used to hold scopes in the engineering field.
