Making a Set of 9v Powered Telephones

Electrical Question: I’m looking for a diagram or instructions on how to make a set of 9v powered wire finding telephones. Ive used a set that a friend had before to trace wire from one MCC to another, but I’m wanting to make my own set.the set is 2 of the pieces you talk into from an old corded phone,each is powered by a 9v battery. each piece has two clips< one to ground and one to the not live wire you are trying to locate in a bus cabinet. the other phone you ground and with its other clip you touch to each dead wire and when you find the wire the other phone is hooked to, you can hear and talk to the other person, we called it telephoning the wire. I would like to know how to make a set of my own
