Part ID "Treasure" Hunt Help
« on: May 21, 2020, 08:56:14 AM »
I have come by a estate stash of phone parts, tools, and components with a lot of switch board, Connecticut and Signal Corps stuff. I am fairly new to the game and collecting 1950's and 1960's so collected up my stuff.  I have been able to learn alot and identify 95% of whatever else I bought except for the five items pictured.  I would like help to identify make and model but so far guessing I got:
1) handset collar from a receiver element prior to HA-1 (has it been cut?)
2) wall phone hook maybe WE and not too old
3) bakelite switchboard cord winder or insulator for gongs
4) bell post for a wooden wall phone
5) hook switch for a wall phone (marked 178s)

anyone else want to play? thank you

The hook, switch and gong mount are Kellogg. That ring makes A HAI rec fit in place of a U1 and also adds weight

cool beans. I tried one of my WE HA-1 and one of my WE HA-7 in the ring and it doesn't fit easily so I guess that is where the separation comes in. The CTE equivalent to an HA-1 is round and fits perfectly so that if a very handy thing to have it you need it. thank you!
