So I recently purchased a fairly nice looking Marx tinplate tunnel that was wired together at that joint. Even the wires have come apart since I got it home. I have another one that is bolted together, but it has an extended tab to put a screw through. This newer to me one doesn’t have tabs.
What is the joint on my new addition supposed to look like?
Here’s my bolted one (yes I know the tab should be on the inside-this is how I bought it)
Here’s the newer to me tunnel without tabs:
I expect I will make two small pieces of metal with two holes to accept some #4 bolts through each hole, forming a kind of two point hinge. But I am curious as to what this originally looked like.
Thanks for any feedback- Jhz563
