I was finally able to get this McMurdo Silver Masterpiece I I've been looking at for a couple of years. It has no cabinet or knobs, but otherwise looks complete and nice. It looks like the ones seen…Continue

AW12 1 dial speaker question

Started this discussion. Last reply by Auroraoldradios Mar 18, 2018. 41 Replies

Sunday I'm looking at an AW12 1 dial with single speaker in an early Tasman- the short leg cabinet. Seller says the speaker cone is damaged. What is the going rate to re-cone something like that?…Continue

How do I dismount the pedestal speaker from a Philharmonic New Tasman cabinet?

I see the 4 large screws in the speaker base but when I try to loosen them they act like there are nuts in the wood base that are turning. The wood base is permanently mounted to the floor of the…Continue

"Well worth the 450 miles, each way, for that cabinet. Hope the chrome plated chassis are decent.  Unlike the speaker for an AW-15, and based on my experiences, the AW-12 speaker probably has a good field coil and cone."

"That could be an amazing set! But, it will be a labor of love as well..."

"Sorry I didn't notice the AW12 details. The owner told me it was as an AW15 so I didn't look that carefully. All the cabinet and grill pieces are stuffed in the back of the cabinet. The radio is located about 450 miles from me."

"It also has the deep tuning dial escutcheon and translucent (rather than clear) tuning scale hence, yes, it is an Allwave Deluxe (AKA AW-12). Norman"

"I see no BFO button hole below the band switch. Could it be an AW-12?  (3 tube power supply and 9 tube receiver) Your serial number for the W prefix falls in the range for an AW-12 model."

"Absolutely one of the better cabinets and protected by a design patent.  It is interesting that it does not have the striking Japanese lacewood veneer.  Has the cabinet been refinished?  Some were painted. Norman "

"Typo on my part, I'll correct it. Yes, the escutcheons look plated, not painted."

"And appears the escutcheons are silver plated."

"Not a Waverly.   It is a Westerly, stained dark. Normally a blond cabinet with remarkable veneers. Westerly%20-w%3A%20AW-12%20-%20front.jpg"

Basket case AW15 in Waverly

I have a chance to buy this basket case AW15 in a (edited)Westerly cabinet. Seller has all the pieces. For some unknown reason he decided to partially disassemble the cabinet. Chrome is fair. Is this one of the more desirable cabinets? The cabinet is in fair shape and will need some structural reglueing. BTW, chassis serial # is W133.See More

"I recently sold my brass plated MP 1 and it had a working tuner still."

Y2K Bruce replied to Auroraoldradios's discussion Newly Found McMurdo Silver Masterpiece I
"A GREAT find especially with all 3 components. The tuner used a lot of pot metal and almost all of the 10 or less known sets have broken tuners. I especially like the very nice colored dial plastic piece and the original bezel."
