My first job out of college was at the Baldwin Piano Co. in Cincinnati. They made only grand pianos there. And they hand made them exactly as they had done 60 years before. 80% of the people making the wood cases or assembling the pianos were German. And by German, I mean they were born in Germany, 1st generation.

They all had their own tools, housed and organized in a toolbox. The tools were, for the most part, made by them or made by someone before they were born and handed down. The tool boxes were also made by them.

I never really got a good look at the inside of the toolboxes because, if you were within 5 feet of someone's tools, you would have someone yelling at you in German!

I worked in Cincy from 76 to 80 and was a member of the Cincy street rods. Lived just over the border in Indiana. I often went to Mecklenburg Gardens restaurant, great steaks.
