Questions about Mercury S-10 battery cables (1926)
My first posting here on CVRS forum. I have nine 1920s & 30s sets built in Canada.
After 50+ years I have acquired a mania for accurate restoration/conservation.
My current challenge is recreating the battery cable for the standard Mercury S-10 (1926).
I have machined accurate replicas of the 7 – pin JONES plug. I’ve figured out how to braid
the black jacket over the rubber covered wires….
Jones plugs were used on a number of American sets, I have three cable examples all with
different methods of identifying the cable battery circuits. Zenith used printed Celluloid
tags that very rarely survive, Nunn-Landon used a cable with printed cloth tags and
the ends of the wires were dipped in colored varnish for additional identification.
So… My question for the group is: What was the wire termination/identification method
that Kipp used on their cables?
