Kellogg switchboard on CL
« on: October 29, 2017, 06:38:56 PM »
I like the looks, but don't know about the price.  Even it's a fair price, it's out of my budget anyway, but your input is appreciated!  I emailed them asking about dimensions, approximate weight,  and a pic of the back.

A magneto board. While it *could* have come out of a hotel it doesn’t seem that likely that hotel/motel rooms would have ever had magneto phones in them....but anything is possible.

Even looks complete. Not a gutted wonder. Still too high priced in my opinion.

looks great... $850.00 sounds like a great deal when they are worth over $1500 in working condition...

Who has 1500 these days? 850 is hard to come by. Everything is getting expensive.

Unless you want to connect only magneto phones, this is not a very practical PBX.
