Thread: Date of Gerstner toolboxes. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I'm thinking of buying an older gerstner for my tools at home, and was wondering if there was any group intelligence on the age of Gerstner boxes. When did the latches change? When did they stop using the little washers behind the drawer pulls? Try this site. Gee never woulda thought of that Have not looked, but is there a Yahoo group for Gerstner aficionados, there seems to be one for most everything else?
I've recently been searching for much of the same information keighg posted about in this thread. I am normally a fairly competent hand with a search engine but I've found very few specifics online in a couple of days searching. I would throw out a few more questions in addition to keith's such as how long were the tin drawer bottoms available? What about discontinued model numbers? There are probably other datable changes as well? I recently picked up a W52 11 drawer chest with a matched WB62 7 drawer base.
I dont think either is very old but still I really like to know all I can about the treasures I drag home. I have read in another thread here that the first two numbers of the lot were the year made and also that it is the last two numbers that denote dates. The Gerstner crew is on vacation for a couple of weeks for the 4th but if nothing turns up I suppose that is where I'll go eventually.
Ed, I believe your W52 box was offered in the early seventies as that was the first appearance of walnut on apprentice boxes in our shop and apprentices weren't offered a choice you got what was available oak, vinyl, and walnut. Thanks Craig, that is exactly the kind of information that seems so hard to find online.
A dated brochure announcing a new product is about good as it gets for the start of a model run. It is easy to believe that the late 70's or early 80's is likely when my boxes were produced. Given the prices from then it looks like Gerstner has managed to stay a step or two ahead of inflation. Glad I was able to provide you with info you were looking for. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.

A worker yanks with one hand on the thick rope and then tugs with the other hand, and slowly, foot by foot, pieces of wooden tool chests make their way up three floors on the hand-powered elevator. Another worker uses a metal clamp to glue boards together. When asked how old the clamp is, a manager replies, "Ancient. Nevertheless, the company has embraced modern employee involvement and has plans to grow by broadening its product lines, says owner Jack Campbell, grandson of founder Harry Gerstner. Yet the company remains decidedly low tech. Employees craft oak and walnut into tool chests, and they like it that way. With a plug of tobacco tucked in his cheek and caressing a piece of smoothly finished oak, Henry Ashley says, "I love working with wood. You take a rough old piece of wood, plane it and sand it, and you have something really fine.

Это невозможно. Хейл высокомерно засмеялся. - Одна из проблем, связанных с приемом на работу самых лучших специалистов, коммандер, состоит в том, что иной раз они оказываются умнее. - Молодой человек, - вскипел Стратмор, - я не знаю, откуда вы черпаете свою информацию, но вы переступили все допустимые границы.
Цель была достигнута. Все глобальное электронное сообщество было обведено вокруг пальца… или так только. ГЛАВА 5 Куда все подевались? - думала Сьюзан, идя по пустому помещению шифровалки. - Ничего себе чрезвычайная ситуация.
Это вам не Америка - никаких предупреждающих знаков, никаких поручней, никаких табличек с надписями, что страховые компании претензий не принимают.
Сьюзан посмотрела на него и едва не рассмеялась. Невозможно. Что это должно означать. Такого понятия, как шифр, не поддающийся взлому, не существует: на некоторые из них требуется больше времени, но любой шифр можно вскрыть.
Итак, каков следующий шаг. Он решил подумать об этом через минуту. Сейчас ему надо было совершить давно уже откладываемую прогулку в туалетную комнату.
ГЛАВА 64 Сьюзан осталась одна в тишине и сумерках Третьего узла. Стоявшая перед ней задача была проста: войти в компьютер Хейла, найти ключ и уничтожить все следы его переписки с Танкадо. Нигде не должно остаться даже намека на Цифровую крепость. Сьюзан снова завладели прежние сомнения: правильно ли они поступают, решив сохранить ключ и взломать Цифровую крепость.
Что значит у вас? - крикнул директор. Это могло оказаться лучшей новостью за весь день. Смит потянулся к объективу камеры, чтобы направить его в глубь кузова.
