History

Also known as the "Banjo Phone" the Kellogg K-500 was an early set designed to complete with Western Electric's famed 500 set. Though the outer housing and handset were unique, the internals to the K-500 were similar to the early Western 500's. Most noticeable on the K-500 is the rounded Bakelite handset, which is actually more comfortable to hold against your ear and shoulder than the G-Style handset. The K-500 was only on the market for a short period, making this quite a rate find. Kellogg later fully licensed the 500 from Western Electric.

 

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 newly powder coated finger wheel and dial card ring, 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 plastic shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This will ensure there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is them carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the plastic with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally we apply a three step plastic restoration compound. This leaves the plastic with a beautiful high gloss finish.

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.
