      Yup, that's exactly what those are -- one "key" in the middle (to send outgoing messages) and a pair of 'receivers' (probably the wrong term there?) for incoming messages. Guessing someone mounted all 3 to a scrap piece of an old shipping box, by the lettering on its bottom. COOL STUFF!!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
    2. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 6 months ago
      Oh, and those 'receivers' are simply electromagnetic relay type gizmos, the moving part near their top toggles back and forth just to make a "click" noise which delivers the incoming Morse Code message. One of yours is missing one of its coils so wouldn't now be functional.

      Thanks Anything for the information. I thought they were cool looking and would look good with my old crank phone. Wonder if I could get them working again? I appreciate you!

      Cokeman, you seem like the kinda guy who should easily be able to at least connect the key to the *SOUNDER* (that's the correct term!) and get it to 'click' when you tap the 'key', using a few bits of wire (or clip leads) and most any handy wall-wart DC pwr supply (or batteries, or whatever) to make 'em go...?? :-) :-) :-)

      Anything,I appreciate the voice of confidence. I am going to youtube it and see what I can learn because I would at least like it to make noise. Appreciate you!
    6. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 6 months ago
      All you should havta do is connect one of the brass 'connector posts' on the key to one of the similar posts on the sounder (just one little wire) then hook the wires from a power supply (I'd start with something ~6VDC, ~12VDC would probably be safe too, I don't know offhand what actual voltage these things really worked with, other than nowhere near current "wall outlet voltage?) then see if the sounder clicks when you push the button on the key. GOOD LUCK learning about and playing with your new funtoys!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
