I'm moving to your side of the country so I can get some of the great phones you keep finding.
Dave...the early bird catches the worm! Usually at the Flea market before the sun comes up. Every Saturday are yard sales. Today was the pits, five hours with not much to show. There are a lot of zeros before getting a hit. My average is well below the Mendoza line, but recently a few solid hits....Doug

It's all a numbers game, Keep looking, keep asking and ye shall find the good stuff.

Pass out a lot of cards as you hit the yard sales. I have bought some good stuff from cards that were passed out years before. Perseverance is the Key to finding the  good stuff.

I found two NOS AE monophone extension phones new in the box. The seller almost threw away the tool as he didn't know what it was....Doug

Doug ,
           Can you post pic of the insides of handset? The base matches the AE Intercom ( Inter Phone that Dave mentioned)) but the handset looks like a regular type 38. Thanks,  stub

I seen your tool on eBay the other day didn't pay attention to the sellers name...haha the phone kid, should have known Doug.   As many ae 50's you have done I am surprised your parting with it.  If it wasn't for the ae 35 I just got, I would be all over it.

Sorry to join this thread so late, but I just got back from the ATCA show in Indiana.  Doug, were these tools packaged in with the telephones, or were they just extra?  I'm just curious if these tools originally were supplied with the telephones, or if they were ordered separately.

Thanks for all that info.  That's very interesting.  I have what I think is an AE cradle wrench, but it is marked "H-43173-1".  I bought it at a phone show about 10 years ago.  It works on most of the AE cradle nuts that I have tried, but not all the nuts have the same outside diameter.  I've had at least one nut that the wrench would not fit as it was slightly larger, or perhaps the notches were not cut as deeply as they should have been.  I will add a photo of my wrench.
