Terry,
         I think it was just the backing piece (insulator) he needed also.  Thanks , Ken

I am probably not remembering correctly but John built a terminal strip similar to this for that impressive restoration he did of an AE stick. I can’t recall what he had and what he had to make but if he found a source for the terminals we should know about it soon. Maybe it was just the backing piece (insulator) he needed.

General Discussion / Unable to hear on phone
« Last post by Paul Boomer on Yesterday at 10:33:18 PM »
 Hi,

 I'm back again, life got in the way.
 I still have the problem of all of a sudden I can't hear anything on one of my wall phones. I had posted a picture of the back of my Kellogg mouthpiece and it was recommended I try getting a new set of rubber washers because mine were pretty deteriorated, I got those from TelePlay but that made no difference.
 Someone had asked if I could hear myself in the earphone, the only thing I can hear is if I lower the hook I hear a click, I can hear a very slight hum and the phone has batteries not a transformer. 3.5V.
 I have a spare Kellogg phone and I tried switching the mouthpiece but no change.
 If the house calls the barn(shop) the bells ring but no sound. I can ring the house also.
 I tried thumping the mouthpiece to shake up the carbon crystals but nothing happened.
 I'll include some pictures of the inside of the phone if that will help anybody's diagnosis.

 I hope somebody can help, it was a really handy intercom, when it worked.  Paul

Candlestick Phones / Re: Electra Voice Candlestick

I compared it to my Wonderphone.  The transmitter cups are the same.  Transmitters are similar, but the Electra phone has three wires connected to the transmitter, the wonderphone only two wires.

Take a look at number 70:Kellogg Switchboard & Supply Co. fluted shaft with “Electra Voice”
Wonderphone transmitter
This is a very rare Kellogg fluted shaft with a color coordinated extra-large
“Wonderphone” style transmitter called "Electra Voice". On the transmitter face plate it
says, "loud speakers for every purpose". It is in remarkable condition. It really is a
unique and special telephone and I consider it extremely rare because I have never
seen another.

Telephone Tools & Tool Identification / Re: BK Precision 1045

I have a non-squared AC cord on a "boom box" (an early predecessor of today's cloud libraries on smart phones) so can try that tomorrow. I'll have to watch polarities, just in case, so the fan does not run in reverse . . .  ;)

Yes that would blow dust onto your paint project rather than away.

I used to have an 8 track player....is it a predecessor to the cloud as well?

So, does an Non Squared cord fit into the fan? Pretty sure it will.
