After looking at that "thing". I snooped around that site a little. Some pretty cool stuff. One thing I did find that might be useful is something that was discussed recently, lead free solder:

Get on their mailing list.  They always get interesting stuff.  I got a 1000 ML drinking beaker last summer to assist in my hydration.

"Vintage Wall Rotary Phone Tan Color hang up switch. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.

WITH ANY UPCYCLE LAMPS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE LED BULBS AS THESE ITEMS WERE NOT INTENDED TO HANDLE THE HEAT OF INCANDESCENT BULBS"

Last year, I bought an NE Uniphone that had been turned into a lamp and I turned it back into a phone, and this past spring, I bought a WE 202 that had been turned into a lamp that I will be turning back into a phone.  That is the only way we can save these - buy them and turn them back into phones, just to reverse what those morons are doing.  Somebody called Cadillac-modela has some Stromberg-Carlson 1243s that they turned into those darn lamps.  I can't right now buy any more phones, I hope somebody else will, and turn those back into phones.

All that effort destroying it turning it into a lamp, no effort at all cleaning it.

Also, made me think of this.
