I am not sure you could make any money building boxes of this standard, but if you could I would suspect you would have full time employment for the foreseeable future & I would be glad to be one of your customers. Just an excellent job & thank you for sharing this with us. Mick B.

Now you just need to build another smaller but matching box to put the transmitter in :)

Jerry, lovely job,  I received my toolbox from chronos from which you modelled yours,  it is very useful and reasonably well made
but I haven't a clue about the wood (certainly not oak) and the finish is nowhere near as good as yours nor the metal fittings.

I love oak, especially quartered oak, jerry.............used to love working with it, the smell, the way it chiselled and cut and the beautiful colours you could get out of it with the right varnishes........and you have achieved all that with aplomb........superb, and a real heirloom for generations to come.
I only wish I'd kept some of my stuff, and my grandads.
your Triton looks superb as well, Bonnie motor?? do you still have it.

Thank you Neil. The wood came from parts I salvaged from a cheap old piece of furniture, stained almost black. Thought it would come in handy one day. When I cut it up to fit my Kity and planed it I found most of it was 1/4 sawn showing a lot of medulary rays. I selected the best pieces to glue up back into boards. Agree it's lovely to work with. I made 36 Tritons in another life and shipped them all over the world. Could never afford one myself.  Mostly 650 pre-unit Bonnies and some with 750 Morgo conversions and electronic ignition.
Jerry.
