We have been talking here at home,  We really only have room for one switchboard and the 555 was always our holy grail of boards. 

We thought it would be nice to give our 551A switchboard to a young collector just starting out in the hobby.    It was given to Timmy and the right thing to do is pass it along to the next young collector starting out. 

The board is mostly functional,  has a working power supply and has stations and extensions wired to modular jacks on the back.   It definitely could use some love

We are in Mid Michigan. 


That's kind of you to do....I hope you and this 'newby' can find each other!

Very nice Steve. Thank you for passing it on!

I would like to add to Steve's offer. If the young person who gets this board is in need of a phone to hook up to it I will supply a plain old Black 500 for free.
