History

The classic 500. The Model 500 came about as a replacement for the model 302 and quickly became the new workhorse of Northern and Western Electric line of telephones. The 500 was manufactured in many colours over the years but originally in black, brown, white, beige, blue, green, pink, and yellow.

The Restoration Process

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 plastic fingerwheel, 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 connection to your wall jack.

Shell & Handset – The 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 then either buffed to a high gloss sheen, or professionally painted using a very durable and scratch resistant paint that will hold up for years. This is the same process the phone companies used to refurbish their own telephones. 

Base – The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then sealed with a clear coat to resist rust. The components are then cleaned, tested and reinstalled.

Connection - Choose from either a modular handset connection that allows the handset to be removed from the telephone, or a hardwired handset connection,  (Note - the modular handset connection also has the benefit of a modular line cord connection to the phone)

The phone goes through extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
