EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts

The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

All, We've got a Scott that will be showing up at the Iowa antique radio clubs annual auction on May 4th.  Our auction is very large with most items arriving a day or two before the auction so many items don't get posted on the auction website.  Here are some pics if anyone is interested.  I'd hate this one to be parted out by many of the ebay sellers that will be attending.

Hi Keith-Looks like the Scott is a Windsor cabinet with an AW 15 in it now.

Its apparent that the cabinet originally had an AW 23 in it.

Thanks Bruce, This Scott is one of five that the former owner had.  I'm wondering if he mixed and matched cabinets within his collection.  We will get back to his wife to see if this is the case.  How many cabinet options were there for an AW15?

Scott offered a choice of several cabinets at any one time. The cabinets available evolved over time, from as few as about six to over a dozen. Prices ranged from about $25 to well over $100 depending on style, complexity, veneers used and whether a phonograph was included.

Your Windsor was a low priced cabinet and is notable in that the top is glued down rather than hinged for lifting as many cabinets were. 

The complication of moving radios to another cabinet includes finding (making) the correct wood panel. Also, some cabinets are not big enough to accommodate some of the larger late 1930's radio receiver chassis.

 In addition to the AW 15 that's in a AW23 cabinet there will be a chassis from another Scott showing up.  Here are some pics.parts%20chassis%202.jpgparts%20chassis%201.JPG  
Bruce, any chance you can make it to the auction?  I'd love to see these go to a Scott collector.

A nice Phantom tuner. The knobs are great to have with it, it should bring a few $$.
