Are there any NOS 2.5 Wunderlich detectors out there?  Although I have been a radio collector since the early 90's, I have never owned a Scott until recently.  By some miracle, I have obtained three…Continue

I just scored a Napier cabinet on eBay and will be picking it up on Friday. The veneer is completely missing from the front, base apron. Does anyone have clear pictures of a Napier base. In the not…Continue

"Accepted! I'm located in central Ohio, a good distance away unfortunately. I may know someone in your area that might have a cabinet available - I will check and let you know. Kent"

"Bob -  Well, what do you need? Regarding the Wunderlich tubes - they almost never go bad, so if you have good ones in the sets you own, you're probably fine. Having 1 spare might be nice, but not critical, you can make a good substitute…"

NOS wunderlich detector

Are there any NOS 2.5 Wunderlich detectors out there?  Although I have been a radio collector since the early 90's, I have never owned a Scott until recently.  By some miracle, I have obtained three in the last two month.  I have discovered I have a whole vein of knowledge I need to acquire.  Two of the radios use the 2.5V Wunderlich tubes.  I have two Tweeters that came with one of the radios, but are not correct for that model.  They are for later models.  In my years of collecting, I have…See More

"Bob - a tip off is the center button on that mystery socket is dark red, much like the dark red of the base of the blue glass Arcturus Wunderlich tube -  a push-pull 2nd detector. Scott used the 6 pin 2.5 volt version, beginning December 1932…"

"Thank you so much Kent.  That is exactly what it is.  It has “wunderlich 2.5V” stamped on the base.  This is a new one on me, I never heard of it. I easily found the schematic from your instructions.  Thanks again."

Kent King replied to Bob Cofer's discussion 12 tube chassis Identification.
"The mystery tube is very likely the Wunderlich detector. In the archive area, go to Set Folders, Allwave Deluxe and you want the 1933 Allwave Deluxe Rider schematic - should match your set pretty closely. Scott's were custom built, so there…"

12 tube chassis Identification.

I started on my newly acquired 12 tube, in Napier cabinet. There is one tube I can’t Identify. The mark has worn off the tube, and it the only socket on the tuning chassis that does not have the tube identifier stamped in the socket. The tuner chassis has three 56’s, one 57, four 58’s, and the tube I can’t identify. The power supply uses an 80 and two 45’s. The tube in question is a six pin tube. Can anyone tell me what the mystery tube is, and how to find schematics for the correct chassis?…See More

"Nice, Allwave 12 two-dial set. Family looks well off, as you'd expect with them owning a Scott. With the lamp on the set, it would be difficult to swap out the AM/SW coils."

I test run in a Scott because I had found one that winked out after about 5 minutes. 

These early 1930's globe shaped tubes are not well supported inside, and if ever dropped can cause mischief.
