Default Specialized S-K Tool Box What For?

I bought this at (you guessed it) the scrap yard last week. I suppose if something heavy didn’t fall on it it would not have been there, lucky for me it did fall! I spent nearly one hour fixing it last night.

Anyone know what tool or tools this was designed to house? Take a look at the wood insert at the bottom and the slot at the top front. It clearly was made for something special.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I have used S-K tools for well over forty years and never knew what it stands for, now I do.

It looks like a case for cross cut and rip saws.

The slots in the back of those wood blocks suggest something like that. Perhaps a mitre box with a place
to store some saws. You could also store straight edges in those slots but I don't know what they'd go with.
"Lots" of possibilities...

Do you think that the wood insert is factory or something hand made?

A framing square was the first thing that came to my mind but it won’t go. The short leg is too long and won’t make the turn.

I was about to post that whe I got to the end of the thread. I'm pretty sure that is the case. I've been "into" woodworking for a long time and think I've seen that before. Maybe the old cabinet maker that lived beside our place in PA .
