General Discussion / Re: Transmitter screws size
« Last post by poplar1 on Yesterday at 01:18:11 PM »
Close to 2-56 but not exactly. 2-56 should work. If your phone was refurbished at WE shop, chances are they changed the original mounting holes in the cup to slots. Those slots were designed for WE screws with shoulders on them.

Telephone & Data Building Wiring Systems / Re: What wallplate for a 554?

Does the phone you are purchasing have a modular plug (usually blue) on the back? (Perhaps you can provide the ebay link for us.)

If not, you can just use a modular to spade cord (same as for converting any hardwired desk set) and connect the plug into the baseboard jack and the loose ends to L1 and L2 inside the wall phone.

What size screws fit this WE 323BW transmitter. Any other phone part that uses the same size screw that I could scavenge screws from?

Telephone & Data Building Wiring Systems / What wallplate for a 554?
« Last post by dc4code on Yesterday at 12:55:21 PM »
Hello!

I am getting a Stromberg-Carlson #554 for the wall in the kitchen,

So there is a phone jack near the floor on the wall I want to put it on. So I was thinking of making a splice in that box and running the wire up behind the wall and then out onto another wallplate that the 554 will be connected to.

The only issue is what type of mounting brackets and wallplate do I need?

the phone I got from eBay is only coming with the phone. nothing else.
