"I've taken a few of these apart, it is tricky but it can be done. The bandswitch shaft also drives a wafer switch that is mounted at the front of the chassis...there is a hexagonal drive on the shaft for this purpose. Finally, there is an…"

Kent King commented on Joe Miller's blog post Philly Amp wiring
"Joe - I'm pretty sure that no Scott set ever repaired completely matched a published schematic. I have seen the resistor you refer too, and I'm pretty sure some of the diagrams show it. Did you go to the "Scott Info Archive" link…"

Kent King replied to Tony Peterson's discussion Scott's trade-in policy
"Short answer: Yes, they did. I have several references to trade-in values for older models when buying a new Scott. They refurbished and resold some of these sets as well, especially when the Philly came out. Suddenly, Scott did not have a lower…"

"I have used Johnsons paste wax in recent years. (yes - the yellow tin floor wax). On workshop machinerysurfaces and on cabinets. Use sparingly and polish out well."

"Yes, I also avoid the beeswax types to avoid buildup. Guardsman makes such, not sure of any automotive types. Most claim to contain "good and bad" silicones. Not sure about that. Anyone have other favorites ?"

"After wiping off the excess, I just keep the surface clean and dusted with an occasional polish using a product containing no silicone. Norman"

Norm.... I've experimented with your (vinegar turpentine linseed oil) mixture. Very satisfying results as I was unsure whether it would dry so well. Question is how do you proceed with this new surface ?

Adjusting the Allwave XV tuning mechanism

Posted by Tony Peterson on October 13, 2016 at 9:24am 3 Comments

The beveled gear on the end of my Allwave XV band switch shaft is missing a tooth but otherwise looks OK. The missing tooth causes the mechanism to slip and catch when switching from broadcast to shortwave. Is there some way that I can re-orient that gear on the band switch shaft so that the segment with the missing tooth isn't in the range used when switching from BC to SW3?

It looks to me like the range used for band switching is about 270 degrees so I'm thinking…

Walling who did some primary…


Philly Amp wiring

Posted by Joe Miller on July 20, 2016 at 9:57pm 1 Comment

I am working on a Philly amp and am finding a number of wiring mods that deviate from the schematic. Some are due to someone bypassing a bad audio transformer and for adding a second phone plug input with volume/mixing pots.

But I also found a 125 ohm Candohm type resistor that is factory mounted to the side of the amp chassis. It is connected in series to the cap connected to pin 6 of the set plug socket and then tied to ground. It doesn't show on the schematics that I…


My Philharmonic featured on SWLing Blog Post

Posted by Ken Carr on April 6, 2016 at 1:14pm 5 Comments

I subscribe to an excellent blog called the SWLing Post. It is run by Thomas Witherspoon, a man who has boundless energy.

Recently he featured a Crosley radio that was competing for the high end market back in the late '30's. At the end of the article he asked if any of his readers had a 'benchmark' radio. 

I responded with a few photos of my BOL Philharmonic and he created a post from my information.
