Quote from: AliceWonder on November 20, 2022, 08:58:19 PMI bought the phone today and did get some off because it has dents in the top and bottom, you don't see them when looking at the phone head-on so I'm not that worried about it.Everything is there, everything with a date I can see is 8-54. It looks like the dial was replaced at some point
QuoteYes, it will be used.
Quote from: ChrisW6ATV on December 02, 2022, 03:22:44 PMRegarding your phone's dial, there is a man in (I think) Arizona who does highly-recommended dial refurbishment at moderate prices, if you get concerned about doing it yourself. With all of the great documentation and discussions on this forum, along with your radio or other experience, I think you will succeed doing it yourself. That is my plan for the slow-dialing Northern Electric Princess phone I have.
