storage cabinet

Post by jklier » Sat Nov 29, 2008 1:22 pm

I was wondering if this might be a cabinet that was used for storing radio parts.

The marking on the top is CY-64/U

Thanks for any help!

Very cool! Thanks guys! I have a couple of BC-1000's so this is a nice addition. Anyone have any photos of stenciling for one of these?

This was not used with the SCR 300 or the BC 1000.Only the two CH-165 chests were used to carry repair components for the BC 1000.If you are going by Fred Chessons list,there are many mistakes there.

It had to be for a set with large sub assemblies like the older radar sets.Small parts would rattle around in the trays when the chest was being carried.

I have three of these, they are great for organizing parts to take to a show. Dolly slides right under and they roll nicely up onto the trailer.

Only problem is the drawers are glued at the bottom and not nailed, hence prone to coming apart.
I am seeking information on M38A1's configured for MP use from 1953-?.

I am also interested in equipment and uniforms worn and carried by MP's during this timeframe.

Wow! I can't imagine hauling these things to shows. This one feels like it full of rocks when it is actually empty.:P

Do you have pictures of this bin? I just got one that has been used as a contractors toolbox for many years. I have seen only one picture online for this item. I am looking to restore it but keep most if not all original parts.
