Western Electric 500 desk phone

restoration details:

Dial – The dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. We have also added a brand new finger wheel, die cut dial card and acetate.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new vinyl cords and the line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.

Shell – The phenolic resin shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This ensures that there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is them carefully buffed on two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves it with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally a three step restoration compound is applied. This leaves the vintage telephone with a beautiful high gloss finish. Don’t be fooled by other model 500’s where they are simply painted, we have the real deal.

Handset – The handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris. It is then sanded with the same process as the shell and buffed back to its beautiful original shine.

Base – The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then sealed with clear coat.
