Several weeks ago in person I had the pleasure of being exposed to several fine examples of World's Record receiver models.  The story told about the original World's Record intrigued me.  I find it…Continue

"Kent, Thanks for including other examples.  Glad to know the felt set up on this AW15 is not a one-off.  Perhaps E.H. Scott felt they needed to be off set during an AW15 revision?  Did the AW12 deluxe or two dial have felt…"

"Jon - Both the AC9 and the auto radio are pictured in the Scott Collector's Guide. There are no articles for the AC9, only a couple magazine ads. Nothing from Scott either on the AC9. I'd guess prototype, if I was a betting guy. I also…"

"Here are some coil wheels I just had sitting about...the 3 that are directly opposite are all out of AW23. I have no mark/set label on the one with the non-opposing felt strips. Not a "one-off" apparently. Looking at the odd coili, it is…"

"Thank you both. The second "Potter" resides near the Wunderlich socket.  This capacitor seems to have been added to the circuit via E.H. Scott.  Value looks to be a .025, would you concur? Thanks, Jon"

"Thank you for part 3 Kent.  Great info!  The AC9, would be interesting to research if one were ever to surface.  I would like to eventually take a look at any article's you my have regarding the AC9 if possible.  I am…"

"Jon: Just had a look at the under chassis of my aw-15, the cap in this position is 0.05 mfd. Mike"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"Jon:  A 0.5-mfd capacitor would be much larger than the one in your photograph.  I am quite sure it is a 0.05-mfd capacitor. Norman"

"Thank you all for your input and observations.  Mike if remembered correctly, your AW15 is an early version with Wunderlich tube correct?  The last early version Wunderlich I completed did not have drilled holes or pads in place…"

"My allwave fifteen has no felt pads, looking at the restoration photographs, there is no sign of any pre drilled holes either."

David C. Poland replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"I seem to recall my AW-15's have the red felt pads to polish the silver contacts when changing SW bands. I know my AW-23's do. Been too long since restoring my late 12 tube DELUXE AVC to remember."

Thomas Day replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"My all wave 23 coil wheel has two felt strips. They are placed between the contact strips opposite each other. "
Tuesday
Norman S Braithwaite replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"The felt strips are for cleaning the contacts.  I believe they were included on all AW23 coil wheels.  Your example is the first I have seen where the felt strips are not opposite each other. Norman"

"Thank you for the advice Dave.  I too always wipe away with a damp disposable towel.  This stuff is indeed toxic.  I notice one of the bathtub caps has no corrosion.  Perhaps a different type of plating or metal all…"
