Quote from: b3tamax11 on June 12, 2016, 04:33:02 PMQuick question, I just picked up a Northern Electric 584DX subset off of eBay, it looks pretty similar to a 584 subset, I am assuming it is fundamentally the same as far as wiring goes?
Quote from: b3tamax11 on June 23, 2016, 05:24:47 PMI got my 584DX/684 subset with the 101A induction coil today in the mail, and I have everything wired up according to the 101A coil wiring diagram on the first page, however the phone doesnt work at all. I noticed that in the original diagram, the terminals for E and GND are labelled as L2 and R on my set. Is my wiring situation different than the diagram?

I took it apart and later cloned it into a WE type handset. It had inside, a simple network of Capacitor, Variac (or varisor) and 2 resistors ( I remember the components formed a square) and an on/off switch and slapped a Buscom SoftTouch on it. This served me well for many years.This "Mini Network" as I recall was a 1uf cap and I think one resistor was 330 Ohms.I later stuck one in a WE 202 and used that for many years as well.Unfortunately I have lost the diagram. It is much like this on page 12 but without capacitor across the switch and this one is missing 2 components.http://oldphoneguy.net/images/oldtex22bw.pdfIf anybody else knows of this circuit, please share.
