Question: Hi, I have a Western electric 102 phone
with the E1 handset. What else do I
need to make the phone work with
modern phone jacks? I hooked up
tip/ring green/red and tip/ring black/
yellow but I can;t get dial tone.
any info would help.
Answer: If your phone has yellow and black wires also on the line cord you may need to
place these on the red and green terminals as well. Try Yellow with the green
and the black with the red and visa versa. Otherwise it is not wired correctly
or the dial is not functioning or the switch is not connecting. Could even be
the receiver doesn't work so you can't hear the dial tone even if there was one.
Could be alot of things. If all else fails, we can do it.
Question: I bought an old desk phone similar to the one pictured at the link
I think it is from the thirties or forties.
I want to adapt it to a modular plug-in working
phone. It has no plug at all, just a
line out. The line out has three
wires inside: one white, one red,
Do you sell something that I could use
to make this adaptation, or do you have
any other advice?
Answer: Just a mod plug like #212. put the red wire on the R and the green wire on G
You may need to put the yellow with the red or the green to get it to ring.

Question: Hello! I'm about to place a small order and need help selecting which
retractable handset cord (product number 806, 812, or 825) to order.
I need a yellow one, but need to know how you have measured the
length. Are the 6', 12', and 25' lengths measured with the cord
coiled & retracted, or with the cord fully stretched out? Do you have
yellow cords in stock at the moment? Many thanks in advance!
Answer: Coiled are measured stretch out. Therefore the 6'coiled cord is stretches out
to 6' and so on.
We have yellow in stock, but tell us when you order what phone is for.
Different makers had different shades of color.
Question: do you sell products or can you offer advice on how to polish plastic
and bakelite phones?
Answer: I hear the Novus products are good, however we have not tried them. We have a
process where we sand out the scratches and use various buffing roughes and a
buffing machine to bring back the luster. We charge about $25.00 to do this. We
also do painting if you have a metal phone that needs painting.
