The development of this telephone is the outcome of a long and varied experience in manufacturing for the special demands of tropical climates, and we feel justified in giving it the strongest recommendation to intending purchasers of this class of telephone, in view of the fact that no complaint has ever been received, although many thousands of this Set have been supplied.
The Cabinet is made of finest selected "old stock" teak well seasoned, kiln
dried, strongly jointed and screwed together; the corners are additionally
strengthened by solid brass reinforcing plates, heavily nickel-plated and
polished, secured by screws of a similar description.
The Generator is of the 4-magnet type and is specially manufactured for this work; it is of light but durable construction, and contains all the features necessary to long life and efficient working under the most severe conditions. The soft iron pole shoes are heavily copper-plated and the magnets stove-enamelled.
All exposed metal parts on this set are heavily nickel-plated and polished,
while the interior metal fittings are suitably electro-plated; brass screws only
are used throughout.
The telephone is wired to the Bridging circuit with a 1000 ohm Ringer as illustrated in Fig. 27.
For shipment the Hook Switch Lever, Generator Handle, and Transmitter
Mouthpiece are removable, and the overall dimensions are the same as Fig. 19.
