Quote from: Babybearjs on January 10, 2015, 02:11:04 PMwell, I got this today and was able to fill in some gaps.... first off, it was made by "General Communications Products, Inc." and has the W.E. #60AP selector in it. the original selector code is worn off except for the last digit of "2" I think the second number could have been a"8" but I'm not sure because most of the number is missing and the first number it totally gone. its wired directly to the terminal strip as follows: L1, L2, 3,4, and 5. the B1, B2, and the EX terminals are disconnected and I don't know if they were originally attached to the selector, or something else.... also there is a part missing, possibly a capacitor... as there are 2 wires soldered together sticking up where the part would have mounted. now, it I connected L1 and L2 to a phone line and rang the circuit, would it make the selector work? this is A interesting toy.... as it could be used for all sorts of switching.... I took some pictures of the unit and will post them once they are looked over...
