    Hey--haven't posted in a while. Life, etc. But I picked up a cool cabinet at a flea market this weekend and wanted to know if anybody could ID the original purpose. I figured it was probably a stand for an garage engine test station but....? There's a label inside the door, but it's unreadable.

    I'm pretty sure that was the one that was under some of the distributor machines and it may have been used on some of the older tune up machines.
    It's a pretty handy cabinet for what ever you want to use it for.

    The HAMB comes through again--thanks guys!

    Now that I know there are decals available, I'm gonna have to decide whether or not to restore it, or keep the patina...

    When I was in high school (around 65/66), I worked in a tuneup shop. My boss bought a new Sun tune up machine with a scope/dwell meter/coil tester/etc. It sat on a cabinet just like yours.

    Gave tithe tune up stuff away and kept the cabinet. Mid sixties I think. Could also check exhaust gases on the tester.
