1950’s western electric telephone

Brothers. I pulled out the bells from an old 1950’s western electric telephone. I mistakenly threw out the “network” part of it.

So what I’m looking for is some feedback on where to get or how to make: 110v to 70v 20hz converter for the ringer. It will ring with 110v 60hz but I’m told this is not the safe way to do it.

That didn’t help. Going to check out my friends at Adafruit.

That didn’t help.

What don’t you like about the design of the ringer module – or did you even bother to look?

1st post led to spark funs blog about a discontinued phone. 2d post/link was what I needed.


So you didn't even bother to look.
