Default Arm Repair Chest, Model of 1910

I just found a nice chest with contents label. I have two questions:

1. I understand there was a small hinged lid tin in compartment 24. I've never seen these individually on the market. I have several for the M17 chest, so does anyone have one available or want to trade? Where could I look and what would be the proper part nomenclature so I can restore the chest.

2. The 1 1/2" vise; was this a hand vise or was it a small portable one? I've seen two examples in two different Arm Repair chests (including the M17) but both were too large for compartment #23. Does anyone have a photo of one besides the B&W one from Brophy's text?

Let the restoration begin!

Thanks but I'm looking for a photo that shows detail of the tools/vise. I've see the one above for years and that one is pretty much empty, thus the manual spread out across it.

Was it original with the chest or an add-on? I'm really looking for the metal tin to hold the spare parts (have several now for the M17) and of course what the 16 oz. Neat's Foot oil container might have looked like. I have the old B&W photo that has been floating around the internet. On the list, it is "Cosmic".

Updates: getting there with a few extras that I havenít taken out yet.


Plus one extra double horn handle. Just need the correct blade for my other kit.

What do you suppose the hand saw was used for in the repair of a rifle?

I can’t see an armorer cutting down a tree to fabricate a new stock or handguard.

Seems like a near-useless tool to be lugging around in an arms repair scenario.

Nice work on the Arm Repair Chests. I have replicated a Company Repair kit and am filling it with appropriate looking tools as per the photos in Brophy's book of contemporary armourers tools. Have you ever seen the correct screwdrivers, numbered 1-3 and with 3/16, 5/32 and 1/4" wide blades and are 6" long? Also if you ever find a source of 'bullet jacket extractors I could sure use one for my kit.

Cheers

Roy
