I just received a notice from USPS of another cost adjustment.

Underpaid adjustment: $1.84
Item:     VINTAGE SMALL POWERFUL TELEPHONE GENERATOR / MAGNETO and RINGER
IMPB/Tracking: 9405509699938265509108
Reason:                Service on label didn't match service used

Ever since the last little problem, I started taking pictures of all my boxes and shipping labels.  Hopefully all that work will pay off this time.

General Discussion / Payphone Jigsaw Puzzle
« Last post by Russ Kirk on Today at 04:45:43 PM »
My wife got this for me because I enjoy putting together jigsaw puzzles.  Usually I do the 1000 piece puzzles, but at 500 pieces I knew this would not take long to complete. It features many payphones and booths from around the world.

CTS was a different company CTS made the Motgomery Ward and Sears telephones. CTS is still around making potentomers. TR&S was Chicago Telephone and Supply, a refurbisher of telephones, also called Dan Mak for Dan Mcnulty (sp)

I'll have to use the DVR.  I work 2pm to 10.30 with an hour's drive at each end.

Had to look that up.  It's carried here on Create but it's on at 7am.  I'll have to try recording it.
There's a new host named Niklas Ekstedt who's OK but he's no Andreas Viestad. Andreas speaks very good English and my Southern USA ears have no trouble understanding him. I think at the moment here they're showing both hosts, so you never know which one you'll get. A quick check of the national Create schedule says it comes on also on Wednesdays at 1pm Eastern and today's show had Andreas on it. Next week does too. It also comes on Monday at 1am.

As a child, there was a butcher/grocery store My grandmother traded at that had a phone just like that on the wall as a decoration.  Wouldn't the tel. & supply be Chicago tel. and supply?  (CTS)

I thought some of you might like to see what became of this 232 body with 'Bakelite Pox'. Fully cured and (if I dare say so myself) looking good thanks to another rummage through the spares boxes.  :)

It has joined my collection. Am very pleased with the result.
