Vintage K-44 K44 Nutone Door Bell Chime Doorbell Brass Chimes Westminster RARE

Please note that my gallery image is not of the chime I am selling. The pictures in the listing are of the chime you are bidding on.

There are 4 brass chime tubes and the wall unit. I don’t know if it is complete or how it is wired so it is untested, sold as-is. Two of the tubes have small stress cracks near the top where the tube attaches to a round plate so the cracks do not affect the quality of the sound at all. Each has a great resonating long ring. The electronics look to be in very good cosmetic condition. The plastic cover needs a cleaning. It has a small chip on the bottom. The top cover is present. It has a loudness adjustment knob and I think it also has a light (there is a small bulb at the top. The longest tub is 57 ½” and the shortest is 37 3/8” with all having 1 1/8” diameter. There is some paint on the wall unit from a long-ago paint job.

See photos for condition and feel free to ask questions. I will be happy to combine shipping for multiple auctions.

Check the shipping calculator for shipping options and, should you be the winner, be sure to read the invoice thoroughly for all shipping options. Ebay’s invoice will put my top shipping option in the shipping field as a default which is usually Priority Mail. In some cases Parcel Post will be cheaper (but take longer to deliver) so please

Ebay requires that I pre-fill in the shipping weight and package size to list this item. I package my items after they are sold as I sometimes have multiple items to a winner. The weights I use are, somewhat, estimated. If there is an overpayment in shipping charges, rest assured that I will refund the difference.

If there is a concern regarding the amount quoted in my invoice, please contact me and I will recalculate the packaged item and send you a revised invoice.

I sometimes will forget to re-do the package size or weight from a previous listing for the shipping calculator so if you think the quote in this listing is too high please contact me to confirm that the info is correct. This has happened to me a couple of times and I am very grateful to have it brought to my attention.

I pride myself in my feedback score and the very positive remarks I have in regards to swiftness in getting my items out and the care I take in securely packaging my items.

Please contact me with any problems before leaving a less than perfect star rating in all categories. Even though it may seem that a four star rating is “good”, Ebay penalizes seller’s scores for less than perfect. Ebay will tell you, the buyer, that a rating of 4 stars (4.0 rating) is good but will suspend my selling rights if my average falls below 4.3. They are setting up sellers with unrealistic and unachievable minimums, thereby lowering seller’s rankings in searches and not qualifying for discounted seller’s fees. Even though you are told 4 is good, it is really bad for me so please consider your star grading seriously before you leave a feedback for me or any seller. If my customers have an issue, I beg that they contact me to resolve it. I am very eager to please. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

I almost always send my invoices the morning after the auction ends. I try to get paid items out ASAP but can’t always as I have other responsibilities. If there will be a delay in shipping I will notify you.
