rob -  lovely restoration on that handset. several hours polishing, and sore fingers at the end type of thing ? looks new now.

for future reference, here's a link to a really helpful post by stub and others about the dial card assembly and its removal.

Thanks guys!  ;D
Yeah, lots of time on the handset, David, especially the rusted transmitter cartridge. The handset was terribly pitted. I think someone was crazy for the disinfectant on that. Alcohol and bakelite do not get along.

Today I modified the 50 Hz party-line ringer to ring properly on 20 Hz. My lower back is out (again), so not much else done.  :(

cheers
Rob
