"Everything top side on the tuner has been cleaned, checked, and re-assembled.  A full detail of all tuner chrome took place afterward.  It's amazing what a little bit of elbow grease can do! Jon"

"Thanks Kent. Noticed Scott has offered clear pictures of Philly schematics, so friended him in hopes of obtaining such. From notes within, I’ve determined my AM BOL is a 39, about when things were on the move. Pedestal speaker and round…"

"Just what I suspected Norm, good eye on the vinyl coated wire. Suspect they’re silver coated contacts as with most momentary devices, very careful cleaning indeed."

Remote Controls

For those fortunate to possess the remote control hand unit, some questions. Are the buttons “positive” ie as an on/off switch, momentary ie you hold choice down till motor tunes, or electrodynamic ie press and release ? Further, are there any inherent problems (contacts etc), with the hand held device ?I’m on the hunt to acquire the above for my 39 AM BOL. See More

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

Posted by Dean Trenery on August 30, 2018 at 5:03pm 1 Comment

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

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…
