"the 1 meg resister is really small, tucked into the socket between two of the pins. If you have never opened up an eye tube socket, make notes and sketch before you allow any of the pin sleeves come loose, which they are inclined to do."

Sales Brochure Wanted

I found this reference in a 1928 sales booklet. I would like to find the piece described. Next best - a good scan of one if you have it:

On/off AC toggle switch

Posted by Scott Dickson on July 2, 2023 at 7:14pm 9 Comments

Scott Radio Friends,

I need some help. I am finishing a restoration of a Scott Warrington cabinet. Everything is place except one thing.

I need a working on/off ac toggle switch.

Here's the catch. While the exit bore hole is .5 inches in width... the depth is also just over .5 inches wide. It is .75" thick wood...
