The wooden parts are about as thick as the MG13 spanners

Please say, what is the size in mm?

in plywood
Really plywood? I supposed it should be the beech board as all another wooden parts of the box?

Under the strap there is a metal rod stamped to the cover on one side and to the strap on the other.
Please can you show the photos or sketch on this?

Well...a new one. Bought it recently from another member. A rare early ordenance blue (panzer grey/ blau grau) MG-Werkzeug box. As most of those around, it is incomplete due to possible reuse post war. It still has about a 95% of it's original paint and very light rust in some spots.

Why there are no "MG Werkzeug" on the cover?

Hello,

That one in post #32 seemed to be factory defective, badly mounted. Seems it had been completed with all internals but the wooden fittings for the MG13 spanners were wrongly placed. I can just imagine it didn't pass an inspection, so it didn't get an OK, the "MG Werzeug" wasn't stenciled and, instead, it got a red dot indicating it was defective. I'm sure it would have been easy to fix that but, for some reason, they didn't.

I have another early on, in which the fittings for the spanners are also wrong but, in this case, seems it was canibalised from some vehicle, refurbished and reissued, so didn't get a factory inspection and got back to a tank. See it in post #56 and #57. There are 2 small fittings in one side and 2 big ones in the other...so 1 spanner would be too loose and the other wouldn't even fit!!!
