Quote from: masstel on November 13, 2010, 01:40:17 PMJust to keep things straight, what Jim is describing is commonly called a "ten button phone". In my experience installing phone systems, these were NOT called Call Directors. A Call Director is a set that has button strips that are mounted vertically, specifically The Western Electric Call Director, and the AE and Stromberg sets that were designed like them.I do believe that parts from ITT ten button phones ARE parts interchangeable with Western Electric ten button phones (just as ITT 500 set parts are interchangeable with WE 500 set parts).These sets also came in 20 button versions.

Quote from: Jim S. on November 13, 2010, 11:02:58 PMI stand corrected as to "proper terminology.I still will probably call them ITT call directors.Jim
Quote from: ae_collector on November 13, 2010, 11:05:06 PMSo let me see if I have this correct....You'd KILL for a 12 button dial Card Dialer?!
Quote from: ae_collector on November 13, 2010, 11:05:06 PMAnd why does your Card Dialer with a 16 button dial look just like my AECo STyleline Collection??Terry
