Just bought my first Princess phone. The bedroom which used to serve as my computer room has been converted to a telephone hospital.

I got it bad...


You're in good company!  Welcome to the asylum.    ;D

So are you trying to build a red 500 or red 2500?

G-Man's example is for plastics for a 2500 set with a square blank faceplate in place of the plate with 12 holes for pushbutton. The 2500 is Touch-Tone.

The 95-type dial blank is round, to replace the rotary dial on a 500 set.

Ironically, it is easier to find a 3" metal dial blank for a 302 or 202 than it is to find one for a 500 set.

Trying to build a red or black dial-less 500. I've had some luck finding a blank for a 2500 but I really have my heart set on a 500.
