My most recent effort...I do not refinish cabinets except when they are just too far gone. This Nelson cabinet came to me a couple years ago, and the bottom segment was half rotted off from sitting in water. The rest of the cabinet was cleanable, although the top (as usual) needed additional work. Kenneth Richmond recreated the bottom trim, providing me a solid piece with new veneer. I used some dark mahogany stain along with amber shellac to match the new base to the cabinet. I also did some work on the top to remove scratches and stains. I pulled together a late AW23 tuner and amp, found a speaker and reconed it, and used my last set of Q4 tweeters to complete this set. This one will go in the display room, although it may have to displace something else....I need more room....

And for reference into the thread on cabinets and rarity, I would place this Nelson cabinet in the middle. It's not a common cabinet, but also not impossibly rare....just difficult to find...(I know of a few others in collections). Any other thoughts on this?

Hello Kent,

This Nelson has phonograph in the top?

;-)

It has room for a phonograph, but this cabinet just has the board in place in the top (on hinges). If I find a good period unit, I may add a phono at a later date.

¿If it is not possible to find one 1936 recordchanger for the 1936 AW23,what of these two phono are more acceptable for this fine console?

Thanks.

I think I would choose the Capehart, if I had it available. Of course, the first choice would be the correct Garrard unit. Since the board in my cabinet is intact and uncut, I plan to leave it in place until I do find a good changer for the set.

I've been working on the Scott mystery chassis below.  I have uploaded several additional photos.  Chrome can be very hard to photograph!  The next time I take photos of this chassis will be in daylight without a flash and hopefully the dial mechanism and a reproduction dial scale will be installed.  Anyway, I welcome new opinions regarding this chassis.

This chassis appears with an air of 800B  ??
