EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts

The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

I joined this forum back in January when I first became aware of the Scott radios and decided then that I wanted one. I have been sort of halfway looking for one but not really searching hard because I wanted to learn more about them first. I corresponded with a few of you here and Angelo kindly offered to show me his Scott sets when I attend the Nashville Swap Meet in April.

 

Well I atttended the Charlotte meet this weekend and stumbled onto a Scott Allwave 15 Chassis complete with power supply and speaker, consigned to the auction there. My hand went up and stayed in the air till I was the new owner and I brought it home this evening. I haven't yet unloaded it from the back of my SUV so it is still in the garage till tomorrow.

 

Now I need some advice from the people here about the care and feeding of a Scott and what to do next. There is no faceplate and of course no cabinet so I will have to search for those if they exist and hopefully some of you can point me in the right direction.

 

I am not in a hurry and in fact had no intention of buying a Scott this soon so I plan to take my time in putting together this masterpiece. I did get some paperwork with the set and hopefully that will provide me with some guidance as well.

 

I will try to post some pictures as I get them and look forward to the beginning of this (probably long) restoration.

 

Thanks,

Frank

The AW15 sets are interesting...there is a LOT of variation in the chassis...Scott was evolving during the 14-15 months that they built the AW15....moving from the AW12 to the AW23. You may have trouble locating an exact schematic for it. I will be glad to help you with that. Also, I do not know what paperwork you got, but whatever you may need I will have available in PDF format. Take it slow and ask questions here and I'm sure you'll be very happy with your set.

Thanks Kent. I will take it slow. As I mentioned,Iwas not intending too buy one this soon and so I have a lot of other projects to work on so I have all the time in the world to get to it and fully expect that finding some of the things I will need
is going to take some time and expense as well. I will probably take you up on your offer to help and really appreciate that.  Thanks again,Frank

Frank glad you got you a Scott! Have not seen a Allwave 15 in person. Iam sure you will find what parts you need  to complete the set..Watch Ebay and ask in here to. Take your time and clean it up nice that chrome looks good once its cleaned up...Good luck with it ,need and help just ask away..Angelo  : )

Thanks Angelo and now more than ever I am going to want to see your Scott sets. I'd like to take you up on your earlier offer to come by when I am in Nashville for the swap meet. We are coming up the day before and were hoping that we could see them the Friday afternoon or evening before the meet if possible. I know you work and we wouldn't want to impose if that is a problem but we're excited about the Scott and really want to see one or two in the cabinets and set up to play. Thanks

OK guys, I posted some pictures, They are the most recent pics added. Two pictures of the chassis and two of the speaker. I don't know but it looks like this speaker may have been reconed. The cone looks almost new compared to the speaker housing.

 

I am waiting till I learn more about what I have before I attempt to power this baby up but I am excited to try it out soon.

Looks good...a very restorable set. If you can post or send me two things, I'll see what we can do about a schematic. First, I'd like to get the serial number for the database. It probably won't help me a lot with the schematic, but I am always collecting serial numbers. More importantly, send me the tube lineup on the tuner chassis. From that, I can make a pretty good stab at finding a schematic.

 

The biggest item to worry about will be the filter caps in the power supply. If someone has added new units underneath the chassis, and it looks like decent work, you'd probably be safe plugging everything in and bringing the set up on a Variac. If the caps are still all original, I would not try the set until you go through at least the power supply and restore it. The speaker does look like its been reconed, but that isn't an issue....looks like a good job.

 

Let me know on the serial number and tube lineup and I'll send you what I have available.

Thanks Kent,will do.
