I have been contacted by Marcus  McCoshum of Santa Rosa and he wants to sell a much better than average condition Scott 800B receiver in the Chippendale console and with the original Thorens CD-40…Continue

In the process of restoring the Warsaw custom Philharmonic I learned that the record scratch suppressor circuit was not working.  With the help of Bill Liers I was able to fix the circuit but the…Continue

While in the process of restoring a remote Philharmonic tuner chassis and comparing to a parts remote tuner chassis, I have discovered a major circuit change in the UHF RF circuits.  Unlike as shown…Continue

"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"

Norman S Braithwaite commented on Michael's blog post 800B remote
"Okay, that confirms the version.  Very few 800B receivers were equipped with remote controls but all were built to use a remote control for off/on and tuning.  Sets originally equipped with remote controls were also capable of remote…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"Jon:  Thanks.  If the 2A3 tubes are of the flat plate variety, they are most likely original.  It appears that the receiver was well cared for and probably little used.  I would not be surprised if the 2A3 tubes are…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Jon Ketron's discussion Allwave 15 in Tasman Cabinet Electrical Restoration
"Being that the detector tube socket is unmarked, the set is early and would have originally used the Wunderlich (NOT Wunderlick) tube. The replacement should be a type 55 tube, not type 58. Look for a type 55 tube where a type 58 tube should be…"

Shielded Grid Wire

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 2:48pm 1 Comment

Shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is not easy to find but is an appropriate replacement for the shielded wire with rubber insulation (now failing) employed in many Scott models.  A roll of shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is currently being offered at the link below.…

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.
