Western Electric Old Timey Top Box
« on: April 28, 2014, 11:46:40 PM »
I bought some old parts for my TYPE 111 project.  I found out that they were from an old top box from a 3-boxer that the seller was parting out.  Since I don't have one, I bought that as well.  The box arrived covered in silver paint.  It was "a little rough" as the seller told me, but that never stopped me before.  I now have the magneto, ringer, and box from the original.  I have escutcheons, spring, switch, and hook mount.  I need the steer horn hook, a pair of brackets, and bell nuts, and 9 early WE binding posts.

I forgot to take before pics(I used the ones the seller sent me) before starting on the box.  A little Citrustrip does wonders:

There was a great wiring diagram on the inside of the door that I was able to scan and spruce up a bit with Photoshop:
