Hi, does anyone have dimensions plan of the chest? I've got an Enfield n.7 and I'de like to build a chest reproduction. I found a picture of plan on the net but, unfortunely, it's blurred and i'm not able to read clearly dimensions indicated. Thanks in advance for your help. Salut!

crap , i lost mine in the first photobucket crash , i had great copy of details , but ....i found them out here somewhere so i know you can find them , i bet simon 'englishman' has them or knows where to get them , 

i will look in my files and see if i still have paper copies tucked away somewhere , 

i wonder if Brian at BDL LTD has them ?

I couple years ago I made a post here of the proper Enfield rifle shipping crates. (They also shipped the bayos with them).
Dennis Walker had a number of the piled out back of his place..so I took pics & measurements. You will have to scroll back a ways to find it now - cause I didn't keep the info.

The stuff I posted wasn't for the model "T". It was a proper shipping crate of Enfields.

But U must have got the wires crossed, because I wasn't the one looking for the info

not at all.
IIRC, the shipping crates I posted were marked with Aus markings, & I THINK they housed 10 Enfields & bayos.

I think this is a bit sharper. For best effect copy/past it into a graphics program & view it at about 125%

Beppe: Let me know if this is any better. I didn't realize there was another version floating around before.

Hi everybody!!!
Thank you very much for your super precious interventions...
Unfortunely I still have some problem to read each number of the plan.. Is there a solution to get them better? Peraps depends on the way of visualising them on my pc? Am I the only one to have this problem?

The problem is its been copied so many times its beginning to just disintegrate. My best attempt was by printing it on to "regular" 8 1/2 X11" paper at actual size, not filling the paper, & just staring at it.WackoConfused

I have No7 box holder in storage in CT.

Do you can me to ship it to you, if you will return it, so you can mass produce them?

Thanks Shamu for your generous idea. But it's going to be to complicate obviously..
Anyway, of course, if you're coming in Naples let me know, you'll find a friend!
I think i'll try to build a crate around my n.7 by taking estetical inspiration from the plan published and from pictures..
