The last two photos are pencil only and am still deciphering the text. All parts are NOS. Bolt shows wear.

Nice work.

You are so lucky to find the bullet jacket extractor. Ive never seen one.

As to the use of the saw, I can only think it could be used to build a workbench in the field. But certainly there would be a carpenter on hand to do that.

More updates: two sperm oil tins thus sending the rounded corner tin to the M17 chest.

Thanks for keeping this thread updated. Every once in a while I run across one of these chests on eBay or some such place, always empty of course, and often ponder what it would take to fill it with period-original kit. Very helpful and useful. Thanks again.

I, too, have the "army tool box bug", and am working on a M1910 Springfield arms chest. Mine is missing the contents list, however. Would you be willing to take a photo of yours, and forward it to me? Of course, it would have to be straight on, and at a distance to limit the distortion. I would very much appreciate your help.
Thanks, Norman

At one point a long long time ago I had a M1917 arms chest. I sold it once I realized the difficulty in filling it. I am glad it moved on, but often wonder if I was a wimp!

You will need more than one bottle to fill those cans....
