Are you restoring a loved one's Chest?
We are looking for people who have restored a loved one's old machinist chest or who may be getting ready to restore a loved one's old chest.

If that is you, We want to know!

Email a short summary ( 1 or 2 paragraphs is fine) explaining how you plan to restore it and why the old chest means so much to you.
Welcome to Machinist Chest !

You have come to the premier shop for hard to find antique hardware and machinist tool chests.

We specialize in the sale of antique machinist chest tool boxes and restoration hardware in mint working order.

This is a family owned business. We carry a wide variety of items for refinishing that hard to find vintage hardware.

We offer a convenient online store where our customers can purchase restoration hardware in one place.

Our website contains some of the items we carry. As with any antique business, all items are subject to prior sale. It is impossible to list all of the items that we have. Often we find items that are the only ones we've ever seen (in over 40 years.) Other items are much more common, and we usually have them in stock all the time.

Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean we don’t have it! We have many parts that aren’t listed here - email us a pic of what you need – we may have it.

If we have it in nickel and you need brass, email or call us – we may have it!

Don't see something? Write or call us, most likely we can find it...

Please be aware that currently some orders may require a little more time to ship then normal.

We are a small family run business and at this time have a close family member experiencing health issues that requires our involvement, which impacts our response time.

Please feel free to contact us for estimated shipping dates.

We apologize for any deviation from our normally expedient shipping. Thank you for understanding.
