"Thanks, Norman.  Okay, I get it with the bandswitch lever. The coil wheel removal seems easy enough . Thanks for taking the time to respond to my plea for help. I'm so glad I found this site Larry"

"Thanks Norman.  I will leave it until I get the set working and then make the determination. Current progress: Most of the components have been riveted in place. All of the tubular caps have been re-stuffed and soldered in place.  I…"

"You are correct.  Without the cathode bypass capacitor, the stage is slightly more linear with respect to frequency but also has slightly less gain.  If the set has adequate volume, leave it as is. Norman"

"Missing in Action:  I've been rebuilding the 16. Ran into a missing component, at least according to the schematic.  The cathode bypass capacitor on the 2nd AF, a .1mfd cap., is missing.  Does anyone know if this was a change, or…"

8 KNOBS?

Hi everyone, I started working on this AW23 and have two questions. This is an 8 knob chassis. I read a lot about 7 knob chassis but not the 8 knob. What is the 8th knob for? Second, I need to remove the tuning wheel with the coils to replace caps under it. Are there any secrets or cautions to doing this before I ruin something. It looks like the center nuts should be removed but I don't know about wires, etc. Thanks for any help you can give me.LarrySee More

Thomas Day replied to Brian Sherrod's discussion Scott model 310 ratio transformer T7
"A suggestion: If the coil is good, try using a thin rubber band or layer of wax on the slug or as a shim to lock the slug into the former. This will allow you to do the alignment and then a small drop of wax will hold the slug in place. Easier than…"

"Mike; Congratulations on your success with this excellent radio! I'm sure you will get the Low Wave band working too. There may not be much to listen to there, but you may find some government and amateur activity on that band. Have fun! Joe"

Scott model 310 ratio transformer T7

When I got this radio, the slug was all the way to the bottom, and was loose.  It's as if the threads in the form have been stripped or something.  Needless to say the FM band is dead, but there could be another reason for that, I suspect this would have a lot to do with it however.  Does anyone have one of these or know where I might find one?  I just need the coil w/slug, but will take one even in the can.  It is part# 20V4624.TIABrianSee More

 I just got into this fascinating hobby.  Just redid a couple of radios I grew up with - a Majestic 1941, and Philco Model14 - 1933, chassis only. Now working on a Philco 96, 1930.  I decided I…Continue

EH SCOTT, FM PHANTOM (28 TUBE), WARRINGTON CABINET....GRILL CLOTH

Posted by Dean Trenery on August 30, 2018 at 5:03pm 0 Comments

Hello...

I have had this radio for 25+ years.

It is all original, and is in working condition.

It has the original grill cloth (gold...with musical note pattern).

Recently my cat decided it looked like an interesting scratch pad.

I am afraid I need to replace it...

Anyone have a source for this item?

Thanks, Dean/Seattle

AW23

Posted by Lawrence E Edmister on August 9, 2018 at 5:27pm 0 Comments

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and want to say thanks for allowing me to become a member. I've been restoring tube radio's for awhile but recently I came across a EH Scott AW23 in a Tasman cabinet. I've never seen one of these and I'm looking forward to restoring it. The chrome is beautiful and in very good condition. I know little about this radio but I'm confident that I will learn a lot here.

Carr Fire

Posted by Norman S Braithwaite on August 1, 2018 at 11:41am 3 Comments

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…
