AW/23 RF Plate Screws?

Posted by Eric Nelson Coon on February 7, 2018 at 1:29pm 4 Comments

Hello, I have a AW23 in a Napier cabinet and currently the screws that hold the RF plate are rounded head.  Should I replace them with counter-sunk screws, or are the rounded head screws correct to this set?

Thanks, Eric

Has anyone ever determined the address of E. H. Scott’s Chicago…
