Just pattern making the cashbox and I need some clarification with your measurements please PM...
Sorry Gameswat - doesn't make sense does it? Unfortunately I'm out of the country for a couple of weeks. Maybe someone can come to the rescue. I'm pretty sure the 10 & 1/2" is measured on the angle, not the vertical.

Thank PM. I've sat down and crunched the numbers some more and figured it out. I thought to measure the brass coin overflow hopper mounted to the mech that sits just over the coin box when the door is shut, and it's just on 10 & 1/2" from the floor. So that would make sense that your 12 & 1/2" measurement was taken at an angle as makes the vertical height slightly less, and my mock-up in cardboard just fits under the brass hopper nicely. And then that has to make the full height 11 & 3/4" to match your photo. !THUMBS!

Cashbox #1 done and fitted, and a bloody tight squeeze at that! I don't have a spot welder so I soldered the pieces together instead. Both my cases had a single screw hole in the similar place to the hole in your box PM, so just a small screw keeping it from moving around.

Well, I remeasured and the correct height was 11 1/4", not 11 3/4", which means yours is 1/2" higher at the back. Sorry again. My image has been edited to reflect this. I guess you could trim, fold and repaint that edge, not that anyone else would notice the difference. Love those authentic-looking dinks on the front. :D

Recycled metal PM, which not only saves me a fortune but does usually come with built in character like this!

OK - this better not have been an elaborate prank you pulled PM, as cashbox now cut down to 11.25"!?
