George I would like to hear anything you know about this equipment.
I may have been mistaken on the comm.
There is a 1/4" jack on the front (picture 5) labeled "General Gongs" do you know what that did?
The manual pull station I have (the only part I have Paul
) is station 2-2.
The craftsmanship of these units is unbelievable, I will try to remove the plastic cover and send a better shot of the mechanism.
For those that are not familiar with the old type master box, they are the "Shed shaped fire alarm boxes on the side of buildings.
Inside was basically a telegraph system that the key was pushed by a rotating wheel with bumps corresponding to the box number.
These old style boxes are very reliable, and could get a signal back to the fire station even with parts of the telegraph loop open.
