Anybody else got their own step switch? If I knew how to hook it all up I could run the neighborhood!

If someone asks me “where did you contract this phoneitis?”, I’d have to say from that darned 29b protector! I swear I think it really is a disease. But yeah, if anybody needs a protector, I’ve got spares!

That is a nice collection of butt sets.
The one in the middle, with the small dial: Is it known who made this type of dial? I have a german "Elmeg" lineman's hand set that looks quite similar, could it be that it was made under license or with US imported parts?
It's likethis one:

Mine is a Western Electric model 1011B.  The dial on yours looks too similar to be anything else in my opinion.

Thank you, I'll have to investigate into that. Unfortunately, the rubber case of my Elmeg is quite brittle and I'm afraid I might break it if I try to open it.
The Elmeg butt set was used in larger numbers by Deutsche Bundespost techs until the mid 1980ies.
