Anyone have a favorite plastic polish?

I suppose I should build a VoIP phone system and get an analog terminal adapter, eh?

    You sure that’s not bakelite?
    It looks old enough that it might be.

    Definitely bakelite. I have a whole bunch of these, and love each and every one :)

    I’d make it bluetooth! I did a similar thing with a GPO telephone (black bakelite) I’ll have the write up soon.

    I use it as a hands free for my mobile when at home. Does your unit still have bells in it?
