How do you support a Scott chassis when you work on it?

Hello everyone!This is the first Scott chassis I have worked on. It's a Scott AM/FM Philharmonic. I've replaced the capacitors in the power chassis and now I want to work on the tuner chassis. I weighed this and it's close to 60 pounds.My question to all of you is how do you support the chassis when you work on it?  I asked Scott Seickel how he did it and he showed me pictures of his metal chassis stand. It's beautiful and does everything he needs. I don't have the ability to make one of these,…See More

"The goal of this restoration is "replication" to as close as possible original specs and layout.  As previously mentioned, all rubber wiring within the power supply will need to be replaced.  After 80+ years, most of the original…"

"Dave: The five pin plug and socket used on the Philharmonic was a popular style used for phonographs into the 1960s.  It should not be hard to find a correct plug.  They came in two types, phenolic wafer holding pins with metal shroud and…"

"Just what I suspected Norm, good eye on the vinyl coated wire. Suspect they’re silver coated contacts as with most momentary devices, very careful cleaning indeed."

Remote Controls

For those fortunate to possess the remote control hand unit, some questions. Are the buttons “positive” ie as an on/off switch, momentary ie you hold choice down till motor tunes, or electrodynamic ie press and release ? Further, are there any inherent problems (contacts etc), with the hand held device ?I’m on the hunt to acquire the above for my 39 AM BOL. See More

"I concur, if the set is working well, and it aligns smoothly using Norman's instructions, then don't make changes. I've never had issues with a Philly following the steps discussed here.  Kent"

EH SCOTT, FM PHANTOM (28 TUBE), WARRINGTON CABINET....GRILL CLOTH

Posted by Dean Trenery on August 30, 2018 at 5:03pm 1 Comment

Hello...

I have had this radio for 25+ years.

It is all original, and is in working condition.

It has the original grill cloth (gold...with musical note pattern).

Recently my cat decided it looked like an interesting scratch pad.

I am afraid I need to replace it...

Anyone have a source for this item?

Thanks, Dean/Seattle

AW23

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and want to say thanks for allowing me to become a member. I've been restoring tube radio's for awhile but recently I came across a EH Scott AW23 in a Tasman cabinet. I've never seen one of these and I'm looking forward to restoring it. The chrome is beautiful and in very good condition. I know little about this radio but I'm confident that I will learn a lot here.

Carr Fire

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…
