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?

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!!!
