Heavy-Duty Cast Tool Chest Handles
CH-98 These are reproductions of chest and trunk handles from the early 1800s, made in what we believe was a very authentic manner. The backplates measure 6 inches wide by 2.75 inches tall, and attaches to your box with 6 fasteners per handle (the blacksmith put screws in each package). Heavy cast construction, the handles lay flat until you need them, then they rotate upwards 90 degrees so that they stick straight out from the side of the box. These are pretty similar to many old toolbox handles we’ve run across, and also do a good job of replicating
handles from early hide-covered trunks like so many that were made in Boston. Stock Number CH98 $48.00 per pair: Two complete handles for $48, USA shipping included.
