Stanley #55 Chest

Ray Newman
Really should build a storage box/chest for my #55 as the flea market cardboard box it came in is deteriorating. Luckily, the wood boxes for the cutters are not damaged or missing.

Did the original #55 wood boxes have fitted compartments/dividers for the various parts? Once saw what was claimed to be an original #55 chest with dividers and the wood boxes for the cutters were on the end(s) the chest? Have also seen chests with the plane assembled and various parts and cutter boxes loose in the box.

Did a Google search and the few pictures that came up did not show the interior very well.

Did a search here, but nothing came up concerning the #55 chest/box.

Appreciate any help, ideas, etc.
