Here is the latest photo of the board after re-gluing and refinishing. Still a coat or two of paste wax to go, but it gives an idea of what it looks like now... I have gone for the original look rather than trying to lighten it up. 211 mounted on left hand side.

Finally, 3:00 P.M. Jul 24th, the switchboard is done and tested. I used a pair of 3.5 Vdc cellphone switching supplies in place of the battery. I haven't checked every function of course, but everything that matters seems to work.

What a nasty job re-soldering those drop wires - there's so little to solder to and with my poor eyes it took quite a while. But another project completed, and on to others! It is a nice little rare board, and required quite a bit of work to the case, at least, as well as the wires broken off the drops. I have moved it to the museum room it is going to be displayed in.

So, exactly what is working? Are you going to wire some magneto telephones to it permanently?
Do the drops work when you crank a phone? How about those talk circuit drops?
Does the buzzer work?

All of the above work, but with only one phone wired into it in the workshop. So that's why I can't yet say it is performing flawlessly, until I get it loaded down with phones.

I will eventually connect all the magneto phones in the demo room to it, but no rush for that - too many other projects in line. At least it is now ready and I can get on with more of the stuff I have received lately!

Here is a PDF file containing the Dwg for the C-190 Cordless Switchboard as received from Keith Hlavacs this morning. He has exactly the same board as I have...
