    Hi,

    Here is my new 1938 dated hand held cable spool.

    Made by Wittig & Schwabe, Langfeld im Erzgebirge.

    The paint appears to be original as there is no traces of overpaint unless it was completely stripped and repainted.

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks !

    Indeed, they are overlooked easily, but nevertheless, a nice piece of equipment....

    And they go so well with FF33's

    Correction, this is not for field phone cable. It is for radio or pioneer cable. I have done a lot of study on the subject and this hand reel is often confused as a piece of telephone equipment. Attached are two photos. One shows the Aufspuler and Abspuler devices for field phone cable with a proper 17.5 cm reel. The other photo is a period illustration of radio antenna construction tools including the cable dispenser for setting up antennas. NH

    This is my cable spool by KMF - in unused ( it appears ) condition.
