Quote from: TelePlay on January 24, 2017, 04:50:07 AMSince you are using a Canon EOS 70D camera with some meta data, I'd think one of the 5 images you tried to load had a random string within the image that caused all 5 images to no load. Resizing the image at least one, or just the offending image (you could try loading those 5 one at a time to see which one has the bad string, resize it and try loading it again).The meta data attached to the last image you posted is attached to this reply in pdf format.Having created a lot of combined images for the auction contest gallery and Find of the Month winning phones, I ended up with 2 or 3 that did not load and offered what I found to work best when dealing with the security "Error" issue, which come from 1 of 2 issue or in the worst case, both in one image. http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=16137.msg180586#msg180586After resizing the problem images, they loaded without further issue.

Quote from: TelePlay on January 24, 2017, 01:23:47 PMI screen captured your images from the pdf file so they could be posted on their own but being screen captures (wasn't working on my machine that extracts pdf images) are low resolution so if you want to upload the images, if you care to do so, in higher resolution, that would be great.
Quote from: Jack Ryan on January 24, 2017, 05:08:22 PMThanks for posting the images. For reference it was not necessary (should not have been necessary) to screen capture. I usually right click an image and, depending on the application, "copy image", or "save image as". Anyway, the information has been conveyed.
Quote from: AE_Collector on January 24, 2017, 07:30:11 PMA couple of things about Jacks Felt based 40 that are different than any in my records so far. The ringer is a SL with code D-56452-C. So far I don't have ANY ringers in the 5645x range but lots of 5646x range. Will have to look that up unless anyone knows of hand what may be different about this one.The Induction coil is the only -B that I have seen. All 40's, 47's and 50's have the D-282996-A Induction Coil yet this one has a -B and its code is stamped on the side of the bakelite base of the IC, not on the fabric wrapped around the coil like usual. Jack:Can you check the large Condenser for model and two letter code. Is there no printing on the capsules at all? Is the transmitter capsule black, brass or the newer aluminum case? I have seen the new aluminum, ones that are unmarked and have seen a couple that a code is stamped into the aluminum, rather than printed on but most of the old capsules have ink printing on them.The schematic references an Optional handset with a transmitter Cut Out for noisy locations. I don't think that is normally shown on the Schematic is it? Yet it is an option not always equipped. Would the different induction coil have anything to so with the option of using this handset on this 4046 sets? Terry
Quote from: AE_Collector on January 25, 2017, 12:15:07 PMYes if the codes in the catalogs lined up with the codes on the bases of the phones this project would be considerably easier. Earlier in a differentt topic we discussed the dial code letter used when ordering (L4111) AE 47 sets. They are M for Numbers Only, C for Dial Blank, E for Letters/Numbers yet the codes on the actual phones are A for numbers only, B for Dial Blank, D or E for Numbers/Letters. E lines up in this case but likely a total coincidence.I think it was either after the 4055 (1934) or the 4055A (1937) and by the 4055B (1938) catalog when the ordering codes completely changed.Terry
Quote from: unbeldi on January 25, 2017, 12:37:14 PMIt may well be that the "A" model was not a particular characteristic, but a designation for the "standard" factory configuration, no matter what it exactly was at any given time.
