Type 24 Western Electric Ringer
« on: December 11, 2017, 07:03:49 PM »
Another nice subset ringer.  This one has blanks on the side - it looks like the box had a receiver arm at some point?  Although the box seems a little small for have an arm on it.  Has anyone seen this box with an arm?

Also got a Type 72 top box.  The receiver arm has been removed - I will try to find the correct arm.  Last I got a real project phone, Manhattan two box.  Everything seems to be there except for a piece of wood on the battery box.  Something to keep my busy this winter.

I love TYPE 24 boxes.  I have a couple.  I have never seen one with an arm, I didn't think it would fit. Is there a hole behing those plates? I cannot see one in the picture of the inside.

Yes I just noticed them (using an iPhone to look at the pics  ::)), they are a little different from mine, if I recall.

Maybe it had one of those short hooks for a watchcase receiver?

it is an interesting ringer.  I have 3-4 of them, and none of them work.  I need to test this one.

May the 2 plates on the side be an lightning arrester with a tiny gap between the plates, and one line connected to each of them?

No, the two plates are covering a hole.  The #22 has the same plates cover a hole.  Interestingly the hold behind the plates in the #22 and the #24 are the same shape.
