"The drawing is correct.  You have a 7 knob set- it is a dial pointer, correct?  We don't count the push/pull switch as a knob, otherwise it would be an 8 knob set.   :-) On the 9 knob sets, there is nothing where your scratch…"

"Yes, they are the trimmers to be adjusted when aligning the IF amplifier. Norman"

Robert Feenstra replied to Robert Feenstra's discussion New member - Scott 16
"So are they adjustable with the  screw that's on one end?  If so, I presume they are part of the alignment process."

"I believe those are mica compression trimmers.  It would be very unusual to find one that is bad. Norman"

Robert Feenstra replied to Robert Feenstra's discussion New member - Scott 16
"Okay.  That sounds good to me.  Do you know, are they mica or paper?  I don't have a "serious" capacitor tester to test them, just what is on my DVM.  It'll check capacity, but not leakage under load…"

 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

Curious how the remote motor drive engages tuning condenser and how it couples with dial Knob ? In the event the remote fails or missing, is manual tuning seemless ? I know this is either/or tuning…Continue

Power supply for World's Record Shield Grid AC10

McMurdo Silver / Jensen 18 inch speaker

Posted by Jiri Placek on March 15, 2018 at 6:10pm 2 Comments

So I finally found an 18" speaker for my Masterpiece V in Clifton cabinet.  The original speaker is most likely in Japan, courtesy of a greedy seller. 

The MP5 amplifier in my radio has a six-pin socket for the speaker cable, and the speaker I have has a cable with six-pin connector as well.  What concerns me are the measured field coil resistances - 3410 Ohms between pins 1-6, and 365 Ohms between pins 3-6, respectively.  Both coils are connected in series.

These resistances…

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
