If you allow, I'll second Ben's remark on the footlocker depth. I did a conversion of a footlocker into Med#1, and am fairly happy with it, however it is probably a good 6" shallower that it looks it should be. I'm working on the inserts for inside it, and I'm thinking man these aren't gonna be...

Doc Dean, I second the request for the picture. Furthermore, do you have the document for translating the Jap medical supplies in a format that could be shared as well? Both would help my PTO impression!

I'm not sure I even noticed that picture before. Thanks for the hint!

Wow- super job! Glad to see the idea take hold in someone else. These should work in lieu of the real McCoy. Doc Dean, any photos of them deployed as litter supports as you mention in your post? I currently use the wooden sawhorse-type that you sent me plans for, but at least would like to see the c...

First off, glad to hear from Marble Falls, Tx. I was wondering if we should start calling you Doc Popsicle, Roger! I will scour the landscape for someting to use for the containers. Something's gotta be out there somewhere.

Ben, you've just made my day! I knew good photos for these would pop up sooner or later. Thanks for keeping me in mind when you saw this!

Nice addition! These are a good place to get a boatload of authentic items if you can snag one off Ebay or somewhere else.

Hey Ben- I must have missed the day we talked about the Pythagoras' Theorum in math class! I used Hoovie's Theorum and it just didn't work out! Anyway, I see that I most likely have my support inside the lid too low, causing the legs to be too long. At that point I became frustrated with it and need...

There is something on this chest I did want to expound on. One problem I ran into and have to live with unless I redesign it concerns the support legs. The legs are meant to fold up under the table for storage. The length of the legs are too big to fit (they want to push into the lid when folded up)...

Ben, if it's not too much to ask, could you edit; that way we're sure it's done correctly. I appreciate the advice! Thanks for the clarification!

Tech question

I've noticed that some items (links, etc) when passed over by the mouse go bold and cause a slight resizing to take place. I've posted a lengthy response to a question and lots of picture links in the forum and it's really playing havoc with the ability to open my photobucket links. Is there anythin...

Thanks for the kind words and support! First off, let me say that I did this by the seat of my pants. I don’t do drawings or things like that well. It was a lot of ‘do this part, fit it to that part, figure out how to make it work with the other part…’ and some of this shows. I’m the kind of guy who...

[REF] Chest, Field, Modified

I'm working on recreating MD Chest No. 1- Chest, Field, Modified. (see picture link) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v485/pvthoovie/30th_and_25th/S3010088.jpg I started with a footlocker I got at a good price and went from there. Not as deep as it should be, but it's what I had to work with. Can s...
