Title: Wanted: Kellogg Switch Hook and mount
Post by: Gary Z on August 11, 2022, 04:35:16 PM
Looking for a Kellogg Switch hook assembly and mount. IMG_9228.jpg IMG_9227.jpg

Also looking for a switchboard plug. I have the cord and sleeve but would take it all if needed. The pin had snapped off. IMG_9123.jpg

Hi Stephen,
The contact section has snapped off of the main base and the switch hook is missing the correct screw to the mount. I can get by with just the mount. Attached is the clearer picture that shows the break. I did try some JB wield but there are some pieces missing.
Thanks for asking!,
Gary

Gotchya.
Is the mount cast iron or machined?
You might see if a local machinist can fabricate the mount for you.

The switch hook probably does not exert a lot of pressure on it. You might give J B Weld a try. Do you know how it broke? That is a awfully strange place for a break. The switchboard plugs come up on eBay now & then or you can find a cord to take the plug off. I had some plugs at one time but I think I sold them all. I will poke around in my parts & stuff over the weekend and see, maybe one left?

You are correct that the switch hook doesn't exert a lot of pressure. I will give the JB wield another try. This phone was part of a traveling display and this is the way I got it from the original owners family.
