I have a stuck bakelite cap on the receiver end of my E1, and as a result can't remove the receiver element, which I think needs replacing. 

When I inquired about using a hairdryer on it, one of the experts here advised that the hairdryer method has been found to work well when stuck items are both made out of bakelite.  There apparently is no guarantee that the hairdryer will work when bakelite is stuck onto aluminum but it's worth a try. 

I don't own a hairdryer and keep forgetting to pick one up when I'm at the thrift stores, so haven't tried it yet.

I am bald and do not own a dryer either.  Try warming it up in the oven on the lowest setting for about 5-10 minutes.

I have used the hairdryer method on stuck E1 caps with success.

Larry, thanks for sharing your success story.  I will definitely try the heat method along with a strap wrench to get the receiver cap off of my E1.  I'd like to use my D1 phone more, but that 557 element is way hollow and squawky and I think it needs replacing.

The 557 does have a tinny sound to it, and that can't be overcome--it's just the nature of the beast.  That said, the quality isn't really that bad, so if yours is difficult to listen to, there may indeed be a problem with it.  Check to see that the diaphragm isn't bent, and is free from corrosion.  Remember to never pull the diaphragm away from the element or snap it back on--always slide it off to the side, and slide it back on from the side.

So are you going to switch it out with the F1 and see how it receives and transmits?

Hi All;
No, not for daily use, even though I might try it out as you say just to compare... But If I need to Sell it I want the Correct Handset for it... But for right now, no, the F1 is better, or so I am told...
THANK YOU Marty

Bing, thanks for the additional 557B information.  I'm sort of remembering the diaphragm not being perfectly flat last time I saw it.  I'm going to make it a point to pick up a blow dryer on my next trip to the thrift store.
