My payphone was converted for home use, but not stripped. good...
I am lookin for a few parts and need help finding them.
First, a WE ??? Dial center
Then, a armored handset cable. Will they work with a coiled handset?
Next, a top half lock.
Why is there two holes???
Also, the info plate in the middle??? what was there???
Regards

If you mean the large holes, one was for the 10G lock and the other was an additional security lock. The small holes  were for an instruction card holder. Sometimes the instructions were mounted on top above the coin gauge and the front holes were plugged  Armoured cords will fit inplace of the coiled  one.You might have to replace the handset.

Ok, I guess the 10G lock went in the center hole?
Don't need a second lock, so that will be plugged. If I can find one???
Thanks for the info!

Oh, So it's basically a big bolt with a nice head huh?
Looks like part of a lock for an arcade machine!
I'll find something to put in there.
Thanks for the pics, Duffy!

Or you could put in an original lock. You might find one of those.

Does anybody have a 10G lock?
I have looked on ebay, which has bunches of 14,15,29, and 30's. But no 10G???

 A 29s (AE) will fit or  a 21B (NE) will fit if you cannot find a 10G
