Bell System Color Butt Sets
« on: September 24, 2018, 08:53:36 PM »
Being an old phoneman I like to collect the tools. Saturday Jan found me a NOS Blue Rotary Butt set still in a beat up box.

 I have NOS colors of Orange, yellow, a very gently used  yellow/blue and the new blue I just received. I missed out on the clear butt set that Bill skyrider  got a few months ago. I did get a cleat TT set, but I like the rotary sets 

Question....how many different Bell System rotary colors are there? Butt sets get beat up pretty quickly so getting them before they got into a techs hands is lucky. The colors are vibrant!

Thanks...Doug
