The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

Hi All: I have posted about this set when I got it in 2015, and have some additional questions/information about it.
This appears to be an in-between version from the 5 knob set to the 7 knob set, in that it has the 2 antenna posts and the new antenna coupling system, but is a 5 knob set. The chassis has been much modified, and the chrome is in rough shape, so it would never be a display piece. I have been doing some work on it the last few days, and coming up with some questions, and figuring out what I would need to do to restore it electrically. Is there an available schematic for this? I can compare it with my current allwave 23, since it looks like most of the circuitry is the same or close enough. The good news is that aside from the modifications, most of the set is intact, and replacing the caps and some of the wiring that has deteriorated or been clipped off would be easy. I recapped my current 23, serial #K480, when I got it.
I do not have the power supply or speaker for this.
I was given an approximate production date when I posted the serial # in 2015.
I have also gained some insight into how it was built, all wiring first and components added next, and since I have done a lot of construction and repair over the years, this makes repair much easier.
Any other information anyone could add as to rarity or anything else would be appreciated. It may at some point play again.
Thanks
Thom

I am finishing the restoration of this Allwave 23. I need a replacement detent cup and spring that goes under the coil wheel. I am sure both cups were there, but can only find one set. If any one has these parts, let me know. 
Thanks, Thom. 

Thom, I can help on those...message me on my email: kent3256@hotmail.com

New part request for J497 rebuild. Does anyone have a spare dial indicator wire?  In trying to straighten it, it snapped. I will try to make one from spring wire, but wonder if anyone has one to sell. Also if anyone can provide the dimension from chassis to the wire cross bar, that would be appreciated. 
Thanks

Thom. 

I'll check...I may have one. They are more fragile than you might expect.

Update on J497. After a couple years of  on off work and a total rebuild with all new caps and resistors, I am happy to report that this radio has come back to life. Now for some tweeks with alignment tools to get it properly adjusted. I also need to find a tuning meter, since the original may not be repairable. 
Thanks to all who provided parts and info for this set. 

hi Thomas, I have a scott allwave 23 speaker(needs recone) and a scott allwave 23 amplifier chassis.  I am looking to sell these. I had intended to build an allwave 23 from the bottom up so to speak, but I have too many unfinished projects. I don't know if there is the ability to send personal messages here, If you are interested, send me your email address

thanks

bruce

Thomas - Re: your AW-23 tuning meter, check for a broken wire. The coil wire is very small gage and vulnerable to corrosion where the ends are soldered to the the junction for the heavier hook up wires. I have had to make that very repair to a meter to restore operation. 

If you cannot make a repair, Let me know - I probably have one from a junker chassis.
