no previous part Part 1 of Exploring vintage mitre boxes series no next part

I have been sending out some mitre boxes to folks and rather than leave them on their own to figure things out this seemed like a good way to start.

This first box was developed and then patented by Justus A Traut in June of 1877. In the video I’ve dismantled the box and walk through reassembling and setting it up.

There will be a few more videos added as time goes on.

Here it is.

That’s the idea Andy. I have a “few” more boxes I can expound on!

Thanks for the comments everyone.

If anyone has a particular box they’d be interested in seeing a video on let me know. Just remember, nothing with tails!
