Thought it was a chime ringer until I saw the inside. Virtually the same packaging.

I needed to use a condensor to make it work properly - No condensor built in which seems a little odd.  Now I know what those warblers sound like.

Very Cool! I seem to recall an experimental 500 model with an electronic warbler ringer type thing that was on eBay a few years back, same principle?

Found the diagram for the modular version (S1AM Tone Ringer) in the TCI library:
Tip (green) to 3
Ring (red) to 4

What is inside the tube looks like a handset receiver module.  If this is a warbler, how do I hook it up to test it?

The 502 should work as wired -- regardless of whether the exclusion switch is operated or not. I only meant that the handset is not in series with the exclusion switch: this is correct for either a 500 or 502.

If you connect other phones on the line to E1 and E2, then those extensions will work all the time unless the plunger is pulled up.

Classifieds / Re: Updated - READ THIS BEFORE POSTING ADS

     GLOBAL MODERATOR POST

Please read the first topic, especially the part about starting a topic title with FOR SALE, WANTED, FOR TRADE or FREE TO A GOOD HOME. Topic title examples:

For Sale:  item for sale
Wanted:  item wanted
For Trade:  item for trade
Free to a Good Home:  item to be given away

It may seem like a trivial request to some members but it is very important to state the nature of the post with those word so that members who scan (and don't read every topic or look to see in which board they have been posted) titles see the item as something up for discussion or bragging rights and not For Sale, Wanted or For Trade.

If you want to sell something, trade something or need something, it is to your advantage to create the topic with the best title possible. And, yes, I am getting a bit weary of having to add those words to titles to help members out so give the moderators a hand here and do it right for yourself. And, yes, after I have added those words to a title for a member, the item is sometimes gone in a day or two after sitting there with the wrong title for weeks.

Try it, it works.

General Discussion / Re: Lamp Phone Atrocities!

I'm restoring a lamp-ised candlestick (GPO150) at the moment. A lot of these conversions look like they'd be pretty easy to put back to being phones.
