That’s it! You’re all set to clean SxS banks. Well, as soon as you find some Freon.... Freon isn’t  sounding right all of a sudden...may just have that stick in the “now banned chemicals” portion of my brain. It will come to me...maybe. I have some more of those disposable rollers and probably the handle for them as well.

The North phone cleaned up pretty well, but looks like the ringer has been replaced.

That looks like one of those military ringers which I have found in some of my phones.  This phone probably originally had a frequency ringer in it.  These are stylish phones, and collectors pay plenty for them in any color other than black.

Probably TN, not T&N? And then would that be TeleNorm?

Volt Meter.  Quite large and heavy - 1907 patent date.

An odd contraption of a telephone.

Here's another interesting butt set.  E1 handset with #2 dial.  And it works.

Test Set of some sort.  Has all the parts of a telephone, including a ringer.   Works, but it seems like it might have been a little easier to just carry around a 302.

I'm just starting to look at all the wood phones, and came across this 160-AC.  Does anyone know how this was used?

Does anyone know what this is?  Can't tell if it's a ringer or loudspeaker?

160 AC box was used by railroads.special key switches or a special lever dial encoder  would step the switch under the clear cover to the satation you wanted to call and it would ring that large DC ringer on the front
