I found this on EBay Its published by the USAF. It covers acquiring, installation, maintaining and trouble shooting Number 500 type sets. Its 32 pages long of which I have (because windows 10/11 make scanning overly cumbersome) given you 3.

It is the "tool tech 3" that intrigued me.

Has anyone ever seen or have one of these tool sets? Just government issued? I tried searching and found nothing.
Why do people with cell phones use "old phone" as their ring tone?

Note the Air Force technical manual states it is only for WE 554 snd ITT Kellogg K554 wall phones. I found that strange in that the dial on a 554 is the same as used on a WE 500.

Interesting testing device based on stroboscopic effects.
