TV Cart Needed

I am looking to obtain a TV cart for my.............TV.

When I was a kid, I had a TV cart for my 19" Sears, and it was metal, had clear wheels that were diagonally placed (very weird design I might add), and had a simulated wood grain on the top of the carts metal handles.. It also was wood that held the TV and the bottom shelf was also wood.

Anyone in the Orlando area have one of these?

EDIT: He looks like he has the kind of cart I'm talking about, based on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK9ru84FUJ0

Yea I want a cart pretty much like that.

I don't want to settle with those wooden ones.. It's not what I had when I was a child..

LOVE that BIG 'ol TELEPHONE on top!!

GONE are the days when you can SLAM down the receiver on a telemarketer or ex girlfriend....and they KNOW it! Do you have to DEGAUSS the set if that phone rings?

I got a Western Electric 302 in my bedroom.

Anyway, I found a picture of the old TV cart, with my old TV on it from when I was a little kid, along with ME as a little kid in the picture.

I really want that cart back.

The phone is not connected to anything. it does work but I do not have phone service and there is no pulse dialing anymore. The phone is a Leigh model 105T-20 with a date of 12-57. Notice the "hooks" that allows it to be hung on the wall dial side up.

Too bad you don't live near Waukesha Wi. I see carts like those at the thrifts all the time and have been saving some...no TVs though(sigh).

What do you mean no pulse dialing? We have a Time Warner bundle, and the cable modem which also provides phone service (there is no twisted pair from the pole....just plug the phone connection from the modem in and the house has phone service) will connect a call dialed from ANY of my rotary dial phones just as good as a call from any touch tone, and they ring just the same too.

Nothing here..

I have a feeling I'll never find one local, especially one with minimal rust to no rust.

What I meant to say is that our regular standard telephone service(century link land line phone) does not support it. I do not have cable. Cant afford it(or need it).

Tom, you are the first person I have ever heard say they can use rotary phones to dial on an Internet-based phone service. Very cool!

There are pulse-to-tone adapter gadgets available, for those who want to use a dial phone on a tone-only line.

BTW, if you need to replace the coiled cord, you can use a NOS CB mike cord. That's what I did. looks almost original.

I have been pulse dialing on my Vonage for a long time now.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS7SWG6eIIU

Thats my WE500 when I first got it and was rewiring it as it was a total mess.

I even had one of those Rotatone modules installed in my 302 at one point. I removed it though cause it didn't work very well, but when I had it, it did this:

I'm 99% sure I have that exact cart. If I do, it's yours for the shipping cost....I can take it apart and ship it. I'll post a pic when I get chance later today.

VERY cool info about the phone and using pulse dialing.

I'll have to keep an eye out for a REAL old phone and see if I can get her to go on the COX cable bundle thing I use. Even if it didn't, would look GREAT sitting among all the '60s-70s TV sets. I'd LOVE to hear it's big mechanical bell ringing. I don't even USE the home phone except if I want to call out and think I'll be put on hold (Symantec, DELL, etc). So...can you still dial a number and get the time? I would do that JUST for fun to "DIAL" the number
