Hi Terry:

Yep! I am going to trek through the snow to mail out the ring generator this morning to ernest12 - have to ask him to say Hi to his cousin Lily (inside joke)! Now he can have his board do the "one ringy-dingy,  two ringy dingy thing!"

Well I am happy to report that the old 555 PBX is working at 80%. All the station and trunk lamps, bussers etc that I have wired work.   By replacing the mouth piece I can now call out using the Western Electric #52 headset, however I still cannot hear the party at the other end.  I exchange out the original ear piece with an extra one I had.  This ear piece might not be functional.  It is scratched up a bit.
It did not work.

Any suggestions?

My next challenge  will be to try to get the dial to work.
