Another WE 305
« on: November 04, 2012, 10:02:41 AM »
I picked up a WE 305 at the flea market this morning for $12.  The shell is in mostly good condition, except that one of the cradle ears was broken off.  I have never figured out how people managed to break off cradle ears.  The question is whether this phone is worth more as it is or for parts.  I could use the dial and handset.  What do you think?

good catch.... replace the cover, and you'll have a real nice 305... I discovered awhile back that alot of 302's were made in a "Generic" fashion so they could be easily modified to work on a 305, and a 410.  Just punch out the hole for the key knob, and you're set... easy fix!

I noticed that also, but the 305 also has a small metal tag which is held by two tiny pins over the switch.  At any rate, the phone is now in the possession of another forum member who, I am sure, will fix it up nicely.
