I need the parts ( shown in the center of this connecting strip ) to finish number 1 and 8 or a complete connecting strip. Any help will be greatly appreciated . PM me with price. Thanks,  stub

I am probably not remembering correctly but John built a terminal strip similar to this for that impressive restoration he did of an AE stick. I can’t recall what he had and what he had to make but if he found a source for the terminals we should know about it soon. Maybe it was just the backing piece (insulator) he needed.

Someone listed just the strip or in a junker Phone? And was this the strip that was missing the insulator?

I bought the terminal strip on eBay after watching for about 2 months as a BIN item. It was just the strip with all the screws and metal solder tab bands.

That's when I discovered I needed the insulator strip which I had to make.

Yes, I've seen junker parts phones on eBay with the strip in the base, just the base and column and strip. Those come up more often than the strip alone.

Okay that all makes sense. I have an AE model 7 that I am contemplating parting out. Sent Ken a PM.

Is this another project needing one of Teleplays custom made insulators or does Russ have it as well...or do you already have that piece Ken?

Are the terminal screws from a Bakelite 21 or 1A base compatible? May be a different color, but are the threads the same?

Might even be the same as the terminal screws in AE40 & 50 though they are usually chromed.

David,
         Yes ,they are the same . I can use a couple of silver ones as it won't be seen when the base is on .Thanks,  stub

I have 2 broken Bakelite bases -- 1A and 21 -- if you need any screws from them.
