Home Improvement Questions? Ask a Handyman for Answers
Hi .. help me understand a couple details please
Are you wanting to use these to test the phone wires??
so you are trying to make a butt set ?
get back to me and I will research more while I am waiting .. Thanks .. Rich
In order for the phones to work I think you need some source of power. In the Navy we had hand sets that were "sound powered" they worked with the action of the sound on the diaphragm only .. not sure if you can do that with these modern phones or not .. If you could it would be by finding the wires that are on the diaphragms and some way hooking them to the wires you want to test.
I am still looking ..
Hope this has been helpful ... if it has been, please check the "accept" box .. You also have an opportunity to leave feedback ... and a bonus if you think it worthy ... Thanks .. Rich
Basicly what they had done is make an always on intercom, and use the electrical wires as the transmission line. I will see if I can find you a schematic.
Thank you for your patience
So far i have found drawings for a hand set turned into a microphone, a set for turning an old hand set into a cell phone., a set to build your own spy device. and a few other miscellanious devices.
If I had two of the darnd things I could build a set (which I plan to do anyways thanks to your question) and then give you a step by step guide.
But in the mean time I am looking. Please be patient.
Ok I got desparate and called an electro geek friend of mine. He will have the drawing for me tomorrow night
Hang in there.
Sorry for the delay Amylynns. I had to go out of town early this am to pick up a stranded friend.
Here is the diagram that Whiz Kid did for me. I hope it works. He said that the theory is good but it is untested. Let me know if it does not work.
ok the wires will coincide with the wires that go to a regular phone jack that goes into the phone.
Here is an edited drawing.
