I am wondering just what this "Thing" is.  Please have a look at the picture and if you know what it is, please let me know via e-mail.

If you come up with a funny, fantastic, ludicrous idea and description, let me know too.  We need a little fun on this blog.


Handset required for this old Siemens magneto phone.

One of our ladies has this poor old Siemens magneto phone and requires a handset for it.
The details under the base of the phone are:
FG.tist.188  31U3

If anyone can help please contact e-mail me.  I shall forward on any replies from all. Many thanks.

I am still looking for a user's manual for the red pay phone.  It is a CKT 676 and needs to work for a living.  So a manual on programming the unit is essential.  I have tried contacting the manufacturers but to no avail.

Let me know anyone who has on of these! Thanks.
