This telephone has been designed to meet the requirements of residences or places where wall space is limited, and a memoranda shelf unnecessary. Although considerably smaller than the other wall pattern instruments, the apparatus employed is identical, and this set will do the work of the larger types with the same degree of efficiency. It contains all the talking and signalling apparatus except the battery, which can be placed in the most convenient position away from the instrument.
The Cabinet is made from carefully selected American black walnut with a high-class finish, and is standardised in two sizes, one for accommodating a three-magnet generator, and the other for equipments requiring a four or five-magnet generator. Figs. 16 and 17 illustrate the first mentioned, and Fig. 18 shows the larger size Cabinet open and equipped with a 5-magnet generator. From the last two illustrations it will be readily perceived that the front of the Cabinet is very firmly sustained by four connection hinges; the connections to the ringer and transmitter are taken separately through these, thus making a simple and neat job of the wiring. The Hook Switch is so located that upon replacing the Receiver, it becomes impossible to hit and consequently damage the cap.
The Backboard is fitted with Terminals for connecting the Line Wires, Earth Connection, Transmitter, Battery, extra Receiver, and Extension Bell, each being plainly marked, so that errors in connecting up are quite impossible. The wiring is placed in grooves cut into the woodwork, and the material used is high-conductivity tinned copper.
The above-mentioned set is particularly adaptable for shipment abroad on account of the small amount of space occupied in packing, and consequent saving of freight charges.
We stock these telephones wired to the various circuits illustrated on the next page, and fitted with apparatus as per the table. The circuits are similar to those used on the "Compact" type, but have the additional provision of connections for Extension Bell and extra Receiver.
