BK Precision 1045/1050 Telephone Tester - Sightings!
« on: July 30, 2014, 10:33:04 PM »
Maybe a bit Self Serving as I am looking for a BK Precision 1045/1050 Tester hopefully at a Bargain Price but looking through the various posts here on CRPF there is likely always someone watching for one to show up.

So, I will make this topic easy to find, Sticky up near the top of the Teleohone Tools Board. Anyone who has one that they no longer need or want OR any sightings on eBay or elsewhere that are a reasonable price should be posted here for whomever happens to be looking for one at the time.

At any given moment in time they are listed on eBay but typically they seem quite high priced. There are four 1045ís on eBay at the moment ranging from $165 to $300 and there is one 1050 (located in Israel) for $169 but shipping to North America is $139. So, no need to post them all here, maybe just 1045ís priced at $100 or lower and 1050ís that are $150 or lower. 1045ís have been seen selling for  $50-$60 and 1050ís for $100 over the last couple of years.

we should have a shorter link and photos.  Otherwise, when the eBay photos expire, we have no reference, 

Isn't there a way to just put the item number after www.ebay.com for a shorter URL?

This one works. You have to have the "itm" before the number.

And a picture.

After he dropped the price, I snagged one of them.  Not dirt cheap, but it should be an easier way to troubleshoot phones.  I have been using a Teletrainer as a line simulator, but this should be more accurate and more convenient.  Thanks for pointing it out; If I hadn't joined this forum, I wouldn't have known that such a thing existed.

I paid about $50 a couple of years ago. I keep an eye on them on eBay & like Terry said most of the sellers are asking close to $300. I don't know if they are selling though.
