Question: Recently acquired a we model 317r oak cathedral wall phone,my first
thought was to replace the few parts it needs to make it look
Now I was wondering if they can be made to work on todays phone
system? Or at least make the bells ring when the phone rings? Bells
work when cranked
no paperwork or diagrams inside. I know very little about old
phones,bought it to sell on ebay,but kinda looks good on the wall
think I'll keep it. I couldn't find anyone here in upstate NY that
knew about phones any info would be appreciated.
Answer: Yes you can make these work on todays lines. You may have to upgrade the old
transmitter and reciever elements to modern elements to get good clarity.
We can wire these to work on todays lines either as an extension($100) or with
TT or rotary($125). If the case needs refinishing or parts polished or painted,
we can do that too. For an extra charge of course. If you would send the phone
to us, we will be glad to make a quote for the repairs.
