Paint Information and
Pricing - Metal Phones
Most of what I have on the painting information page applies to metal phones.
This page is mostly to provide pricing and a few tips.
1. Early cradle phones - In most cases, leave the cradle attached to the
base. Either remove switch springs or wrap them in tape, a lot of paint finds
it's way into the base. Mask off the stems of plungers.
2. Candlestick phones - Leave the shaft attached to the base. If you want
them painted separately, mask off the threads on the shaft. Remove or mask off
the transmitter. It's best to remove.
3. Subsets- If you don't want the inside of a subset painted because of
wiring diagrams, be sure to let me know or they will be blasted out and painted.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a minimum charge of $10. If you only send one
part or a couple of small items that don't add up to $10 on the chart, then
your cost to paint will be $10 plus return shipping.
If you don't see your phone listed below, just pick whatever
most closely resembles your phone by surface area.
If you don't see your phone, or are not sure, ask for a
