Hard hat & Service manuals
« on: December 22, 2017, 06:46:20 PM »

I won the auction for all of this for $10.50 + shipping

All I wanted was the hard hat, it will look good somewhere in my collection.

Look at these manuals and other paper and tell me if it is something you would be interested in having.  There is one more manual that I didn't picture, I will add it soon.

Lot of technical info in there.

Nice fine! That hard hat is in amazing condition. My hardhat I use at work spends most of its time behind the seat of my truck and its more beat up than that  ::)

It is in good condition. It has a couple scuffs on it, but over all looks real good. To me worth the price of the buy it's self.

Is it just me, or does the BellSouth stuff turn up more often than others on Ebay? Being in NY, I naturally have a bias for NYTEL, but oddly even locally BellSouth and even Southwestern Bell items seem to be filtering up.

Here in NC I'm used to seeing Bell South, this came from Tennessee. Perhaps Bell South covered a wider area than other regional Telcos therefore there is more equipment out there? I don't know, just trying to think as to why.

Remember that Bell South formerly Southern Bell lasted longer with Bell in the name than the other "baby Bells". Had a large "Footprint " when bought by ATT

Based on the trouble tickets you got with the hardhat it is a splicers hat or lineman's. the installer helmets were different, at least where I worked.

It is light weight, only suitable for protection from light bumps on the head...

perfect for display!
