Quote from: unbeldi on July 02, 2017, 12:42:50 PMHere is what I have.The set is essentially like a WECo 500 set, except the network connections are a little different.This diagram does not contain the latch. Haven't seen a diagram for that, IIRC. But with this is should be fairly simple to ascertain its wiring.

Quote from: TelePlay on July 02, 2017, 02:32:25 PMIt's been more sensitive the past few days to a week. Haven't seen it in months and then caught it 3 or 4 times myself recently. I ran the images through BatchPurifier http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=18071.0and that solved the problem. You taking photos with a newer camera phone or editing in an Adobe product (just curious)
Quote from: unbeldi on July 02, 2017, 03:27:32 PMThe phone has a 20 Hz frequency ringer, indicated by code T. You're lucky, because that means it still rings today on a standard line.
Quote from: mentalstampede on July 02, 2017, 04:52:29 PMIt's interesting to me that Leich used both a letter code for ringing frequency and the actual number. In any case, that "20" stamped on the base is one of the reasons I snapped this up.
Quote from: Alex G. Bell on July 02, 2017, 03:51:41 PMI have here a box which I marked "Leich 105C w/ hooklatch" Based on what was in previous replies that's self-contradictory: it's either truly a 115 or does not have hooklatch. But if that's what I marked on the box most likely it's what's marked on the phone. Perhaps it's a Frankenfone that was converted. If there is interest I'll dig it out and report in more detail on what I find. Good to see from Karl's chart that it probably has a SL ringer.
Quote from: unbeldi on July 02, 2017, 07:44:09 PMI have seen so few of the 100-series that I don't even have confirmation of all the model numbers. I have been going by the model number sequence of the 700-series. This may be the first 115 I have seen in pics.
