TCI Historic Reprints

The following items have been scanned and edited using the latest sophisticated software. The TCI Company Store team identifies print material that can be reproduced for the benefit of telephone collectors.

High grade cover and paper stock is used to enhance all publications, and color is used where appropriate and affordable. Catalogs reprinted may be embellished with related material from other sources. TCI makes a small profit on each of the items sold which is used to fund software purchases and other projects.

Calculagraph Model 6 Instruction Book

Calculagraph Model 6 Instruction Book

TCI has finally produced a catalog that covers the Model 6 and the Model 30, using original Calculagraph publications and the appropriate Bell System Practices (BSP's).

Many collectors are not aware that the Model 6 is the round, clock driven (wind-up) model, while the Model 30 is the round, electric driven elapsed time recorder. We have also included all the appropriate BSP's even though some are repetition, but the drawings in the BSP's are very superior and detailed, and provide additional maintenance information.

A very limited number of this 36 page catalog was printed and will not be reprinted by TCI in the future. Get yours today.
