Scott Models evolution - consolidating what we are discovering.

Been interesting to follow threads on this site. Some recent threads have delved into considerable detail on the nuances that reveal evolution on a model and challenges during restorations. Unfortunately, as time goes by, very good information becomes buried in old site threads.E H Scott Labs was, after all, a custom builder. Scott made running changes to improve production models, some changes were minor, some not so minor. Riders is incomplete. Diagrams found do not keep pace with actual set…See More

Scott Philharmonic 30 tubes 1938 tunning indicator problem.

Posted by Juliano Correa Fantinatti on January 5, 2015 at 7:44pm 3 Comments

Hi folks.

Does someone have the schematics for this radio? Or does…
