[att.ham-radio] Ringer Magneto Wanted

rib@mhuxt.UUCP (Robert I. Block) (04/15/88)

I'm looking to acquire a "ringer" magneto (the kind of hand-cranked
A-C generator once employed to generate the ringing voltage on
field phones.

Has anybody seen one of these advertized by a surplus outfit?
Once, these were common items from rural phone modernizations
and surplused military field phones, but I haven't seen one
in some years.

Oh, by the way, the reason I want one is to make a worm gathering aid.
