I managed to find a Red Dial Philharmonic (1938) in a Wellington cabinet, with a Garrard RC-60 turntable, and the tweeters.  Along with the deal was a pointer dial Philharmonic, in a Warrington.  All…Continue

"Have you went through and checked all your tube socket voltages?  That's a good starting point.  "

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Thomas Lager's discussion Phantom Deluxe cabinet veneer
"Without knowing what your cabinet is, my guess is that it's walnut veneer.  Most all radios had walnut veneer on the sides. "

"There's plenty of parts sets for AW-15s out there.  If your meter checks bad, you should be able to get a replacement fairly easy. "

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Richard Sowry's discussion New member acquires first Scott radio
"Dick, Welcome to the forum!  I agree with Dave, below, that this is an aftermarket cabinet.  I have seen one of these before, in pictures, on the web.  Your set is well worth restoring, and will be pretty spectacular when you get it…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Joe Miller's discussion AW 15 Amp Problem
"I would put the two 20 mfd @ 450V caps in series, with equalizing resistors across each, to keep this from happening in the future.  Also, what Kent said about wiring the hi/low switch permanently in "high" is a great idea.  I…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Kent King's discussion AW23 alignment issue
"Then your problem is almost surely a mica cap.  I would think, if a resistor was changing back and forth like that, you'd get noise.  But, once again, freeze spray is your friend.  If you don't have any, and have a can of…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Kent King's discussion AW23 alignment issue
"Flaky neon tube oscillator voltage regulator?  Dirt in one of the neon tube sockets?  You might want to get out the freeze spray for this problem.  Check the mica caps that are in common to all the bands.....I've had the…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Restoring prewar FM tuner

Alex R. Whitaker commented on Scott Dickson's blog post On/off AC toggle switch
"That switch in the Ebay listing is a momentary contact on switch.  You toggle it to on and have to hold it there.  As soon as you release pressure, it goes back to its normally open (NO) position.  Even if it could handle the load…"
