"Such a nice cabinet. Wonder if you could relocate the eyes if there is room at the far left and right. Make extension sockets with 6 wire cable and a couple 6 pin tube bases to plug into set's eye sockets so as to avoid modifications."

"So, if you are the only person with a Quaranta, then you have the only 18" jensen that was used in a Scott set it would seem.  For the OP's knowledge, the 18" jensons were used in some McMurdo Silvers (and maybe a few…"

" The pits can be filled in with weld.  I restored a Philharmonic amp that I had to weld up 30 hole that somebody had drilled in it.  It came out perfect.  Find someone who can fill and grind smooth.  "

"I would put it's value at $400, though E-bay may get a little more depending on the bidding.  The dial is shot and the chrome is fair, though better pictures may change my mind about the chrome.  For comparison, a Philharmonic tuner…"

I have one I want to rebuild(new cap.'s and resistors). Mine MAY have some missing components. I can see that most of the resistors are 1/4 or 1/2 watt, but are there a few larger wattage one's in there also? Have never located a parts list. I do have all the manuals and schematics.
