Wow GH I had no idea that’s what the #89 cabinet was. Lots of tools there! I like the two smaller sets too. Classic

That set up looks great Don.

The #89 is a really nice pristine huge set.
Almost too nice to use the tools, but I will use them.
Like the rocket kits I prefer, I like vintage tools and finishing methods (good old Pactra Aero Gloss Dope)
I like the flat "clear top" #86 kit better than the other #86 I have in a hinged box.
The flat top kit even has a "vintage" scent to it.

I have gathered the pieces for the #89 over the years but never actually seen one.
