Sears Tower 6333 new
      #5559236 - 12/07/12 12:39 PM

Was wondering if someone with a Sears Tower 6333 equitorial could post a picture of the inside of it's wooden box. I have a box which I would like to refinish/restore and all of the internals are either broken off or missing.

A picture with a few key dimensions would be most helpful.

Regards,

Bob

I guess nobody had one. Try googling the image and you may get lucky, I'm told a lot of sears were made by Royal Astro, try looking for those too.

Did any of the Sears 6333 boxes come with wood supports / dividers inside? All the pictures I have seen so far, such as the one above, invariably show polystyrene blocks inside to hold everything.

First off, thanks to Richard for posting the photos, but yes, the box I have had wooden supports and partitions for all the parts.

Thanks,

Bob
