Automatic Electric Linesman West Test Set 1940's
This Automatic Electric (AE) West Test Set was traditionally used by telephone linesmen to detect cable faults in open wire. Circa ~1940. The leather case is in very good condition. The receiver is in good condition except that 2 small holes were drilled into the bakelite most likely used to hang the receiver. The battery compartment has no corrosion which is very unusual. The set is complete with the finder clip. (Batteries not included!).
