They are missing a cap on the receiver as well.
Unless the receiver element was glued in.
I kinda like the paint job, but to do a simple search for dial center parts would bring up what he needs, for only a few bucks. Then, that would look great

I was thinking the same thing. If he spent another $8.00 or so he would have a much nicer looking phone. Could even leave the retainer black to match the handset cord.

Technical "Stuff" / Re: 2500 keypad wiring

This is the wiring for the metal keypad / ITT 427 type network combination:

Keypad      Wire          Network
Terminal    Color         Terminal
Label                     Label
________________________________________ _________________

2           Gray/Brown    Goes to hook switch (and to L2)

1           Gray/White    Goes to hook switch (and to L1)

R           Red           E2

W           White         GN

R-G         Red/Green     R

O-BK        Orange/Black  C

S-W         Gray/White    RR


And this is the wiring for the WE type 72 keypad / WE 4228 network combination (the keypad doesn't have terminal labels):

Wire          Network       
Color         Terminal
              Label
________________________________________ ____

White         Goes to hook switch (and to A)
(attached
to screw
terminal
on keypad)

Orange/Black  C

Green         F

Red/Brown     R

Blue          B

Red           T

Black         RR

White         GN

White/Blue    S


As you can see, there are significant differences, and not just with regard to wire colors. The metal keypad has 7 wires while the WE keypad has 9, and the metal keypad has 2 wires that go to the hook switch while the WE keypad only has one.

Thanks. I haven't been able to find a wiring diagram for the metal keypad. I don't even know who manufactured it because it came on a phone that had been remanufactured by a company called "Bayless", and they removed everything all traces of the original manufacturer (no idea why they did that). On the PCB that screws directly to the underside of the keypad, they used a Dremel or something to scrape off any manufacturer markings.

For Sale / FOR SALE***Russian Office Phone
« Last post by HarrySmith on Yesterday at 08:32:36 PM »
I have received my NOS Russian Office Phone so I am selling the first one I got. These are really cool looking phones which is what attracted me to it in the fist place. There are some pictures in this topic:
 http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=20740.msg215830#msg215830
I have attached a few more here. I have replaced the handset cord with a NOS one from my pile of cords. There are a lot of spare parts with this phone including the original cord, an extra dial, keys, plungers, bulbs, lenses, brackets, spacers, screws, nuts etc, see picture attached. This phone requires a controller for all the features to work which it does not have. It does work though. I hooked up line 1 and tested it. The white neon lights on front flash on incoming calls and the ringer sounds like a buzzer. Conversation is clear with the new cord. It is a big phone! I have attached a picture of it next to a 302 for size comparison. It is not that heavy though. I usually ship phones in Medium Flat Rate boxes but this will not fit! If interested send me your zip code & I will get a shipping estimate. Make an offer via PM before it goes to eBay. Thanks, Harry

For Sale / Re: AE 1A For Sale - not mine

You may be right. If anyone is considering buying this phone it would be best to ask Jon directly. It could also just be a card he added.

Nope.    That's not standard to that set.

It has a PAX card. If it is a PAX phone then I don't think it works on the regular phone lines. I think it needs a PAX system. I think the dial is different for PAX
I may be wrong, so feel free to correct me.
