I bought this from a friend and plan to work on it this fall.

It has 5 shelves, that use a common pole on which to pivot / swing out from the cabinet. Each shelf will hold 32 cylinders, that's 160 total capacity. It's dimensions are a tall 39"h x 22"w x 18"d.

I have search the internet for hours and not found a match.
Does it look familiar to anyone?

I will eventually need a door handle, escutcheon, key and interior mounted lock.

Thanks,
James.

I do like a mystery and a challenge. :geek:

Even if it remains a mystery it is what it is! :coffee:

The Rockford Cabinet Company made something similar.

The Rockford No 696 looks very much like yours on the outside.

Very cool! :ugeek:
You nailed it.

I'm glad that you also have shown the No. 697.
I wondered altering the shelves to have a lip, so I can keep my cylinder boxes.
Glad to see that was an option.

Thanks,
James.
