Joe:

Yes, In cabinets having this feature the tuner chassis itself is suspended on sliders.  Over the run of 800B receivers Scott used two types of sliders with incompatible parts.  When the tuner chassis are removed from the cabinets, one part of each slider is often left with the tuner chassis and the other part of each slider remains attached to the cabinet.  The use of two non-compatible sliders has caused a lot of frustration on the part of those who are trying to get chassis back into cabinets.  As far as Scott receivers go, only the 800B was housed in cabinets with this feature but there were several different styles of cabinets offered for the 800B with this feature.

Norman;

Thanks for posting those pictures. I imagine some other cabinets use this or similar designs. P art of the system appears to be some steel slide brackets with ball bearings.

I have added photos of the mechanism to my album featuring the 800B art cabinet.

The tuner chassis will slide forward as shown in this photo when the door over the tuner is lowered to a horizontal position then pushed into the cabinet.  The photo shows the door pulled back out.  Some late 800B consoles did not include this feature.

Does the radio tuner chassis slide forward when the cabinet door is opened?
