mike hadley replied to Auroraoldradios's discussion AW12 1 dial speaker question
"Dan, this always looks drastic but you have nothing to loose, good to hear that your voice coil is intact, the as impedance is about 1.4 times the dc resistance. the cone that I used was eBay number 331792020513, cone number 134905a this may or may…"

"Dan; looks like you have been down this route before, re-coming a speaker is just as easy mike"

mike hadley replied to Auroraoldradios's discussion AW12 1 dial speaker question
"Ok, the next step is to measure the cone height, to do this accurately you will have to remove the old cone, first remove the felt cardboard gasket, this may have a tendency to fall apart, if it does glue the card layers back together with white…"

mike hadley replied to Auroraoldradios's discussion AW12 1 dial speaker question
"It looks like congratulations are in order, can you post a photo of the back of the speaker, once the type has been identified you can think about re coming, the trick is carefully measuring the cone height, that measurement is between the basket…"

mike hadley replied to Auroraoldradios's discussion AW12 1 dial speaker question
"Hi, speakers are relatively easy to recone, it all depends if the voice coil and spider are ok, otherwise you will be in for a coil rewind, not that bad to do just a little daunting first time round. as for the escutcheon, if it's the same…"

"This knob copy is for an antenna matching unit I am in the process of making, made from brass and aged in liver of sulfur,  It has a side screw fitting and fits on a 1/4  inch shaft."

"Robert; you could adapt the molding method to suit your resistors if you felt that way inclined, the joint seam would require a little cleaning up, quite easy with epoxy putty, The main problem I found was matching the original colours, all depends…"

mike hadley replied to Robert Feenstra's discussion New member - Scott 16
"Robert; Making dogbones is the way to go, once you have the mold it's good for at least half a dozen resistors or more, plus it's really satisfying to see the chassis look as close to original as you can get. Remember that the resistor…"

"Robert; I have been in the electronics trade for some 40+ years now and the size of electrolytic caps indeed getting smaller, surface mount components are a lot worse in this respect. Better materials and technology plays a big part, but I do agree…"

mike hadley replied to Brad Winder's discussion Scott 16 parts advice
"Norman, I totally agree on this, as there seem to be so many variations with these speakers, the seller on ebay does have quite a selection of cones, so is possibly a good place to start. hopefully one can easily be found. Mike"
