    I was given this Kennedy toolbox today, great shape except it's missing 6 of the drawer slides. They appear to be the same as ones on an older Craftsman box I have, but I can't seem to track down any. Does anyone have a source for the drawer slides? Also, any idea of the year of this style box. Thanks. 100_0839.JPG 100_0836.JPG

    Nice boxes. I have 2 of the upper boxes my grandfather left me. Mine have leather handles on top lid so I would guess they would be 50's-60's era.

    Sorry, can't help you on the slides.
