A.E. Dial Center Ring question
« on: July 17, 2017, 07:17:37 PM »
I picked up some of these dial center rings thinking they would fit my AE #24 dials.  Although they do fit, the chrome ring is missing the tab on the back that would get locked on the dial.  Instead it has this brass center part that seems to lock down on something.  Does anyone know what kind of dial this would fit on?

Northern Electric apparatus blanks are exactly the same as Western apparatus blanks, and they take a standard number card assembly.     It looks like an after market type of ring to hold an combination advertisement and telephone number card which would clip right over an existing telco number card holder.

Back to the original post, that ring is associated with the first style of clear AE fingerwheels developed for early coloured AE 80/90 type phones. The common denominator is that the ring is always chrome and fingerwheel always clear plastic. Black AE80/90’s continued to have black painted fingerwheels with the same number card ring as previous 40/50 phones during this time frame. Rings are not interchangeable between the two types.

Below are the four types of AE fingerwheels in order covering from the introduction of the type 24 Dial (1924) onwards until AE ceased to exist.

AE rings have no deep tabs. The only difference between the early plastic rings and the metal ones is the tab on the ones for metal fingerwheels .If the tab breaks off.swap the backing parts and use on a plastic fingerwheel .That Kellogg ring only fits a blank with AE style card and window. Will not fit on a dial

By George you're right!  Thank you!  First picture is my model 1170 that has this same ring.  I'm used to seeing the rings in the second picture.  The ring on the right goes to the Kellogg Dial, the center for the Masterphones.  Rather than have 3 different rings it seems like it would have been better to just use the ring off the dial for the blanks.
