AW12 1 dial speaker question

Sunday I'm looking at an AW12 1 dial with single speaker in an early Tasman- the short leg cabinet. Seller says the speaker cone is damaged. What is the going rate to re-cone something like that? That will be a factor in how much I offer him. It's also missing the escutcheon.See More

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

Posted by Eric Beheim on November 22, 2017 at 8:49pm 2 Comments

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