I know what you mean by being "used". I've got an old machinist's box of my Dad's. It's a beat up Kennedy. He used it when he was a pattern maker at the IH foundry. I don't think there's a square inch of undamaged surface on it. Between the foundry soot, various oils, chemicals and daily abuse I'm surprised the drawers open and the tools don't fall through the bottom.
