Curious of methods and materials best used for chassis rust ? I suspect they'll be some pitting as there are areas beyond "surface" condition.Continue

I've been patiently waiting for the "right" cabinet, this one began life as an early FM GE phonograph, a optional cabinet of the same Radio now housing my 800b. Both with the full doors are difficult…Continue

Any guesses here ?

"I have a VERY clean 800B in a cabinet with the 17in Scott (Dumont) direct view TV and phono. I will give it to anyone that stops by to load it up. Kent"

"Thank you for this consummate write-up, David, much appreciated. Clearly, for hide glue, alcohol acts different than other organics. As for the Braemer, I will always consider it a well balanced rather hansom cabinet."

Dave - I attended the auction and looked the early AW-23  Scott 5 knob radio over. No statement made of the working condition. I passed it up.

Sold for $750 plus 10% gallery fee plus 7 1/5% State tax - so pushing $890.

A lot of corroded chrome with some bubbling and pealing on the receiver and amp. Sovtec output tubes. The cabinet had been refinished with a rather flat finish which pretty well hid the beauty and depth of the fancy fiddle grain tropical Laurel veneers. Oil finish?  The Richmond Designs repo Aztec speaker cloth (a darker 70% scale repo of the original gold cloth) has a bit of a green cast that, to me, did not compliment the blond cabinet.

I was not interested. Looked like more work that I was interested  for  result unsatisfactory to me. (I have an excellent example in that cabinet already.)  Hope the buyer restores it, rather than parting it out, Properly restored electrically, a great sounding radio.

Need help with schematics for the Masterpiece 6. There was an early/late version, mine the earlier with dual choke power supply. There may
Be other variations much like Scott.
