After restoring and studying several Ransom & Randolph Dental Cabinet #66 cabinets we have determined that the cabinet was originally available with the option of either delicate reeded feet or turned bun feet. The original catalog listing shows the delicate reeded feet. The delicate reeded foot was the same foot that was standard on the model #65, the predecessor to the model #66. However, the delicate reeded foot, although very attractive was not strong enough to withstand the test of time and we believe it was eventually phased out on the later #66 cabinets. If your cabinet is missing the feet you may be able to determine what kind of feet it originally had. If upon looking at the underside of the cabinet, you see dowel holes where the feet were, that would indicate it had the delicate reeded feet. If you see just old screw holes, that would indicate it originally had turned bun feet. However, we have seen one instance where the cabinet had both the dowel hole and the screw holes, but did have the original bun feet attached with screws and the dowel hole was not used.
