Diagram Requests / Re: Stromberg-Carlson 1223

Nobody replied, so with experimentation, here is what works best:  move green handset cord wire the the W terminal on the dial, put red wire on the Y terminal, the green wire to BK, the brown wire to BB, and the white wire to R.  Wired this way, you don't have those loud clicks when you make or break the circuit.

General Discussion / Re: TCI Library Link not working.
« Last post by Jack Ryan on Today at 12:13:30 AM »
This is a bit like a secret conversation - still no links.

Using the TCI library search for C38.038 gives zero results

Using a Google search "C38.038 site:https://www.telephonecollectors.info" gives zero results.

C38.038 does not appear in C38.001

How does one find C38.038?

Thanks

Jack

Oh OK I get ya, the western is better built in my opinion, I came across some LED units but found that the line switches were very noisy. So I changed out the LEd unit's and just went with the lamp units, much better quality.
I had even tried cleaning the contacts on those but they were still prone to being noisy.

the ITT 636 is made of plastic, and the screws that hold the button assembly to the terminal strip are too short. because the units are pretty much identical, I was able just to trade out parts and put the unit back together. I prefer the WE version of this switch because of the metal housing. Plus, the screws were longer and were machine thread as apposed to course thread. you would have to examine both versions up close to see what I'm talking about... After I got it all wired I wanted the bell on the 684 subset to be on line 1 only. so I had to use the extra pairs in the CAT5e cable to set that up. found that the capacitor was bad, so I had to replace that. got it up and running right now. the phone in my carport has all 4 lines and the intercom. the ringer is on a cut-off switch inside the house so I can turn the bell on or off as needed!

in an effort to update my files I was looking for the Practice for the WE 684BA Subset. when doing a general search, I found the files, but can't access them. for some reason, C38.038 which is about the subsets is not working. when trying to view or download... the link kept failing saying it could be my cookie settings. so, I check that and tried again with the same results. the file is in the library, but not working.....

The links to issues 1, 2 and 3 were broken, and have been restored.

Let me know if any other links are misbehaving.

When you see things like this, you can also email me or report it using instructions on the Library site. I may see an email before a forum post.

Work continues on my project, I put casters from an old office chair yesterday, that's a nice addition because I can move it easier. Next I'm working on the side wing, I have it worked out that it's going on the left side, and the support will swing out from the back leg. Giving me another 18+" for space but folds down and out of the way..
My top swings up for quick access to the space under for tools and my manual, and accessories. I removed the tool holder on the right, because it's not really needed since I have ample space under the top. Pictures coming soon..

So did you just swap the keys with each other?
I don't understand why you had to perform surgery on the key. Both are interchangeable with no modification.
