"There is probably a very leaky capacitor on the resistor. The resistor itself could be bad, I'd replace the resistor and any caps in the associated circuit.  Kent"

"Thanks. I found the amp and speaker are fine. Problem is in the RF stage.A resistor gets very hot and crackles so I need to find the reason. That noise gets amplified  and very loud. Impressed with the overall construction. I may bid on a…"

"Good luck.  Sometimes a problem is elusive. Keep at it. You will become really familiar with the Phantom. Then if you encounter a Sixteen, 14 tube Masterpiece or even the Super 12, you will feel right at home."

"The 4 wires to the two field coils go through a black grommet that now may be brittle (and stuck) due to age. That grommet is in a short channel to the edge of the bell cover.  Just slowly pull the bell cove straight up as you use a large screw…"

"And Yes it is the 12" Magnavox. I did carefully open the bell cover as far as I could and no smoke/smell there. And my previuos statement was wrong I did not check the field winding, just the windings on the transformer. IF the field is bad,…"

"I am not 100% sure yet. I see some signs of tar around one mounting frame, and with magnifying glass, it looks a little weird around the V C leads, but that may just be age. Resistance checks seem o.k. I ran some H V from the Eico cap checker from…"

"Just to be sure, you have the 12 inch Magnavox speaker with an octal plug to fit an amp using 6V6's output tubes???  And this speaker has two field coils? Your Phantom model has 19 tubes, including the magic eye? You are sure the fault is…"

Phantom, not Deluxe

I have ahd a nice Phantom for 8 years and finally decided to get into it. 46 caps later, it was working quite well on the bench.Assembled back in Acusticraft cabinet and BANG POP! Off!I thought the 8 wire speaker cable had shorted internally, but the output transformer seems to be the issue.Tar melted a little and appears to have spewed a bit around the V C leads. SO.... anyone have a good spare?12" Magnavox, trans number 18653.Thanks,pearsrepairs@hotmail.comSee More

While we all love E.H. Scott products (me included!) I thought it would be interesting to document E.H. Scott's main competitor, McMurdo Silver.  A look at several McMurdo's starting with…Continue

Philharmonic AM/FM

Posted by Robert Feenstra on June 21, 2019 at 12:24am 6 Comments

Ever since I first heard of EH Scott radios and joined this forum, I've been looking for a Philharmonic to "fall into my lap". Well, when Ron R. sold me his Marine SLRM I saw his AM/FM Philharmonic sitting in the corner.  When he offered it for sale, I knew I would own it, I just didn't know how soon.  Now, a couple of months later, it's here in my possession.  Thank you Ron!

This will be a major project including some re-chroming.  I want to do the radio and Ron proud!  I…

This chassis, the power supply chassis, speaker and instruction booklet were reputedly removed from a Sun Oil tanker many years ago. The chassis is complete except for the aluminum cover for the oscillator coil and in quite good condition. The date on some of the capacitors is 1933. The only coil pair is short wave, but I do not know for which band.  The power supply chassis has been significantly and poorly modified, butchered really, possibly because if it was on a 1930s tanker the supply…

McMurdo Silver Maserpiece V filter chokes

Posted by Tony Peterson on May 25, 2019 at 4:07pm 8 Comments

One of the filter chokes in my Masterpiece V has started buzzing loudly. I've tried tightening the screws, shimming the winding and dipping the choke in wax all with little success so my thought is to have the choke rewound. 

Does anyone know where I would find:

1. Where I would find the value of the MP5's filter chokes?

2. Who would perform this type of service?

3. Would it make sense to have both filter chokes rewound even though only one…
