Auction Talk / Re: ODD ROTARY DIAL FOR A WE 302

Thanks for that tip. I didn't know dials from diffrent manufacturers were interchangeable. What is the advantage of having a SPDT ?
Thanks Rod, not a lot considering. But I was busy this afternoon with my youngest boy, so I didn't have a lot of my time before he came home from school.
I've litterly been working out of three tool boxes, and it's been hard to remember what's in what box.
I did have my butt set, toner and probe in the house since last fall, so I knew right where they were.
So tomorrow I go get the rest, punch tool, crimpers ends, and some extras then I can have then in this new box and then I'm set. My older son will get one of my old tool cases to have for his tools, at 13 he loves carpentry work, he's helping a guy about my age do some Reno in a house.
But anyone looking for one of these, Wal-Mart online has the best price around like $28. With shipping.

I looked at Hart brand, decided against it because they break easy. Harbour freight because they are more $$ and break easy as well.
This brand seems strong and it holds up well.
I paid like $45 for my old one thought was a great deal, but the dividers were junk. My tools were often going all over the box because the dividers kept coming out. So I finally had my fill, and gave it away, and I wanted another, but wasn't going to just jump into and other like my last one.
I honestly with the dividers were a bit more higher and more versatile as far as placement. But I can live with this and deal with how things are.
I'll post the final few pics tomorrow after it get the set up finished. Then when it comes to doing telecom and electrical, I'll know where everything is easily.
I've actually got several people in my community who still use land line service and have needed some help relocating jacks and trouble shooting problems.
And when they found out I can do that work, at a fraction of the price of someone else, ice actually had some fun doing this stuff again!
Dear Jack:

I hope the photos help you find out just what kind of dial that is in my AE40... It works well, it's just a little odd it doesn't have AE markings on it.

The set is a L-4123 ESL JF7, with a matching wiring diagram, I'm not sure on the gold decal, though; it has 6 patent numbers, and the Chi ago7 on it, but from its looks it appears to be a newer repro decal as I have heard of before.

I suspect my set is a refurb, but outside of 2 very slight chips on the bottom rear lip of the case, and some missing enamel on the grip, it looks very nice to me.

I like to have a phone that for once I don't have to rack my brain a lot on.

Let me know what you think,
Dear Jack:
Attached are photos of the dial I mentioned..

I saw no embossed markings, but there was a vermillion letter "B" above the spring assembly.

The spring assembly #AK25(?) attaches with 2 screws to the dial.

The silencing pawl looks to be a lever type;

This could be a rebuilt 24 type dial, but it operates nicely, and only needed a couple drops of oil to free it up.

I'm still mighty impressed; most AE40's I run into have the 51 or 51A dial.

That is a good dial...
it appears to have the SPDT, as well as the SPST????
not positive, but if it is, then you have more options than the usual progressive switch version.
I am looking for one like yours. ;)
Some pictures of the dial and the pawl would help.

Is it marked "Type 24"? Was it made by AE?

The AE Type 24 dial didn't provide click suppression. The 24A36 added a flat spring to quiet the pawl. The Type 51 used a friction type pawl lever to fully silence the pawl.

Kellogg made a version of the 24A36 with a different silencing mechanism.
There were also TA-45 dials made by several manufacturers for the US Signal Corps.

Larry thank you for your reply. I am new to this forum. I consider myself more of a tinker. I have a small collection of all sorts of rotary phones.
