Default Re: Morse inker.

As with a lot of things I find telegraphy fascinating. Your sounder is delightful, I would just try to get it working with a light clean. I believe inkers were often used with sounders, as the coils on the inker didn't always make a loud enough sound, perhaps in an office with several lines. I made a sounder from an article in one of the boy mechanic type books, and it makes a fantastic clunking sound. They were used with a hood to direct the sound.
You can of course find other telegraph items, but they tend to be pricey.
