Norman S Braithwaite replied to Joe Miller's discussion Scott AC10 Questions
"I suspect that what appears to be a spring is actually a positive electrical contact to the rotor and the homing of the trimmer is due to some extent by gravity. The trimmer should rely on friction to stay put. Some trimmers have end play…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Jon Ketron's discussion 1934 AW 15 Electrical Restoration, Questions Please
"No. The power amplifier was longer, the speaker was larger, and headroom was required for the indicator tubes. I am aware of original AW-27 chassis in the Waverly, Warwick, Warrington, and Rivinia cabinets."

That's how sad that screwup made me feel.

Better than some of the celebrity mugshots I have seen. Kinda rivals Gary Busey's mugshot.

Mighty glad to become a member of this organization.  I look forward to many conversations in the near future.  Currently I'm working with Bill Bryan to find an A.W. 15 to add to my collection.  Incidentally, Norm you have been invaluable at helping me with my A.W. 23 and A.W. 12, dual dial and thank you for the invite.
