Not at all unusual decades ago (before my time) I have read and heard about those before, but cannot speak to how good an option that was.

Seems to me the TP would break apart and get into the engine.

Doubt that'd be a problem with the old John Wayne TP.

Or that 80 grit shit they buy at work. F$&king awful. You could wet sand with that shit. I used to take my own in case I had to go more than once in a shift. I hope the bastards at Guantanamo have to use the same toilet paper the Railroad buys.

Very few men and almost no women at all have enough sand to just grab a gun and have a go at it!  beerdude

I like to try and learn new things. There was a body hammer and two Dolly’s in one of the drawers so I started banging out the dents. I like to hit things so I was a natural at it. I had a blast repairing the big square hole in the top right small drawer of the top chest. I was in a rush so it isn’t perfect, but it was a neat experience. I bought two more snap on boxes that are thrashed. I will have tons of body work experience when I get done with those!

Deadnutz, that box is very nice, the color looks very close to mine. Any idea the year?  There is not much info anywhere on Yorktown. I would like to know what year mine are and I wonder if I can get the emblems from matco?

Always used jackstands when working on the floor, always.   Was in a Chevy dealership back in the day,  hot dog mechanic rolled into the shop, after a road test, squealed to a stop, grabbed a floor jack, lifted full size Impala, slid underneath to adjust something quick.   Asked a guy in the shop if he ever used safety stands, nope, he don't believe in them.  Six months later he was under a car, wheels off, and the jack let down, funeral was 4 days later.

Looking back at your pictures now I can see the distinctive Yorktown drawer pulls. I have a small Yorktown chest that the paint is in great shape so I am posting a pic for you. Yorktown also used a very nice blue but I sold that box and don't have a pic. The logo is stamped into the lid of mine but here are some pics of Yorktown boxes which show the name badge so you can see how the script looks.  http://toolarchives.com/taxonomy/term/1762

Matco bought the box plant in Jamestown, NY and it now makes Matco boxes.

Yorktown is a new one to me, I am clueless. Congrats on grabbing the gun and laying down some color! Very few men and almost no women at all have enough sand to just grab a gun and have a go at it!  beerdude

yeah that's a cool old ride. I wonder why it quit running 2 moths ago shrugx

It’s a BSA, it dosen’t need a reason to quit running (my money is on Joe Lucas). Actually I love British bikes. I mainly was a Triumph guy but I had a few Beezers over the years. I like the way that bike sits. Needs to lose some of that exhaust.

I am done sanding and painting all of the boxes. While sanding them, I was able to identify all of them, either through stampings or just paying attn. to small details.
Here is a list of what I have:
Snap on KRA-429 1963 2 drawer mid chest
Snap on KRA-377D 1973 8 drawer roll cab w/lower door
Snap on KRA-274A 1983 3 drawer side box
MBC  unknown 1970? 2 drawer side box
Yorktown 1970? 2 drawer mid chest
Yorktown 1970? 6 drawer roll cab
Yorktown 1970? 11 drawer top chest w/ lid and cover

I would love to find 2 Yorktown emblems to put on the top chest and the roll cab, there are holes for them. I am cleaning up the handles, locks, etc for the other ones. I was able to match the Snap On color perfectly by mixing some safety red with sunrise yellow, in Rustolem. My hubby bought me a HVLP gun to shoot it all as spray cans would have bankrupted us. ( I know NOTHING about paint or painting, until now) Now we just have to watch the paint dry! LOL

Seems to me the TP would break apart and get into the engine.

As I recall I think there was some sort of fine mesh screen to prevent that from happening that sort of held the roll of TP captive hugging it rather close or something like that. Perhaps others a bit longer in the tooth than me might add further clarification.
