"Sean - no problem posting this here. That is a very clean 510. The set may not have great interest, as it is quite late (1950s), and produced after Scott had passed away. The cabinet and cleanliness make it more desirable...best of luck selling it!…"

Hoping this Sheraton finds a good home

I currently have three cabinets but only have room for two. This Sheraton is in good shape, with a couple age spots, and good chrome. I have owned it for 5 years, has not been plugged in for the last five years. Currently located in Boise, Idaho. Please let me know if there are any questions I can answer or more pictures that I can provide. I am open to offers. I apologize for not listing an asking price, but I do not know what would be a fair price. Thank you, RyanSee More

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Tony Peterson's discussion Allwave Imperial capacitor values
"EH Scott Radio Laboratories initially produced the AW-23 using Potter 0.1-mfd capacitors then switched to Sprague 0.05-mfd capacitors. There is no difference in performance of the receiver but a slight difference in cost of replacement components.…"

Thomas Day replied to Tony Peterson's discussion Allwave Imperial capacitor values
"I have also rebuilt an all wave 23 and found something similar. I think it will depend on the schematic version you are using. I replaced all with .1 uf, except those that on the schematic were listed as .05 uf. In my case, all of the bypass caps…"

1934 Worlds Fair in Chicago.

It was purchased, paid for. and then shipped to Arizona where my parents

lived.  It apparently is a Tassman model - this info was given me by my son Curtis

Philly Amp wiring

Posted by Joe Miller on July 20, 2016 at 9:57pm 0 Comments

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.

You can check it out at: …

A friend of mine spoiled with…
