Morton Salt Box Project

From Our Friends at Morton Salt!
A Special thanks to everyone over at Morton for letting us use these images for radios!!

1914 Morton Salt Box Images

Click on the two images above to down load for printing.
The right image must be 5" high x 5.5" wide, and the left image should be 5" high x 6" wide.
This will fit a "new" Morton's salt box exactly (don't forget to remove and use the salt!!)
I cut out the images and sprayed them with a contact adhesive from a spray can and then applied
them to the new Morton's salt box.

    Two beautiful "salt box" radios build by Dan Peterson May 2003

Build a salt box and then wind your coil over it and it will look just like a "old" set!!
