    I had some bench time last night. After removing most of the felt cloth I discovered the base was screwed on with 10 screws. That’s a lot of screws for a small box like this….
    Anyway, I unscrewed all of them…

    Once opened it was time to remove the white inlay. I was actually wrong yesterday stating that is was a type of Perspex. These white inlays are nothing else than white glass. I carefully removed it and was quite impressed by how they were originally installed to protect the glass from breaking.

    Out of curiosity I started to sand it down beginning with 60 grit sanding paper.
    Some before and after...

    Did you check that with your mass spectometer?

    Great acquisition! That stand has nice lines and "good bones". Any pics of the completed restoration?
