I have just finished refurbishing a very nice Cherry Red Western Electric model 500 manufactured in 1956. This phone was detailed after receiving an inquiry from a potential customer through this blog site. I put together a “photo album” showing the steps I take in refurbishing a telephone. Please take a few minutes to view the “slide show”…..I think you will be impressed with the quality of my workmanship and the care I take in putting a beautiful working telephone back into service. Just think how many world events have transpired since this telephone was first put into use over a half a century ago!
Once again I would like to feature some work done by a friend and fellow collector, Jorge Amely of Simi Valley, California. Jorge recently refurbished a very nice, rare Mediterranean Blue Western Electric model 500. He has allowed us the opportunity to share some of his repair knowledge. It’s a great photo album. Thank you Jorge!
As always, I appreciate your comments on this subject or any other relating to Vintage Rotary Phones! Thank you.
