Early AW23 differences

Posted on February 27, 2022 at 8:35pm 0 Comments

I've been restoring the early (5 knob) AW23 that was found on a trash pile in Columbus. This was the lightning strike set I wrote about in a different post a couple weeks ago. 

This is a VERY early AW23, there are several unique things about this set:

First, the grid lead to the mixer (6A7)...in most sets, the lead comes out through the large tuning cap cover and feeds through a hole in a phenolic piece riveted to the 6B7 shield base. On this set, there is a…

Scott vs. the Supply Chain

we hear lots of talk these days about supply chain, but Scott suffered from challenges for many years. Here is a new one for me....I am restoring the AW23 that fellow member Kevin found on the trash pile in Columbus a couple months ago. Got it up here over the weekend and opened it up...

it is 100% Potter capacitors. Now I have probably been…

Scott speaker - but from what?

Posted on February 5, 2022 at 1:32pm 14 Comments

So, it looks like an AW23 speaker, but it doesn't have the two plugs for the tweeters and the stub cable (and no stub cable). The connector is like that used on the pointer Philharmonic (two large pins not together, not like a 23). Pin testing shows it should work on a Philly - but it is a 12 in and no Philly style tweeter connection either. But tagged Scott...I have two of these BTW...the other one has an AW23 style plug on it and tested it with an AW23 and it works great. Any thoughts…

that image is great! I will add it to the archive. Thank you!

Kent;

I hope this attachment works. I finished the composite figures 26 and 30 for the Late version 800B. I found this helpful in tracing out the electric tuning arrangement of the 800B receivers.

JoeIf this turns out to not be satisfactory resolution and detail, let me know and I will try sending the *.pdf file which is 5.3MB.

Kent;

I took a closer look at the Late 800B parts radio tuner chassis that I have. It is SN 6182 and I found its final test stamp inside the preset tuning assembly backplate and the date is Jan 15, 1947. So that one can be added to your database.

I took the time to take a good photo of the Late version 800B AM SW RF compartment underneath. This unit has never had any parts replaced in that area, so this part of it is unmolested. I had just noticed that the Early version SN 1035 that I have had already been worked on and there were some changes to bypass capacitor placement that I do not agree with. My intent is to put it back as close to original lead dress and parts placement as possible. Sometimes changes in part placement and lead dress can cause significant problems to develop and result in inability to properly align RF circuits.

Thanks you! I have added your cleaned up diagrams to the Scott Info Archive 800B folder. Your work is greatly appreciated!

Kent;

Yes I am willing to contribute these for fellow members and others use. I enjoy doing this type of work. I was originally in product documentation at Collins Radio which included doing schematics.

Joe -

That's great...when you get them done, I will post them in the archive if you are willing. All such work helps everyone here. That is what this forum is all about!

Kent

I will be working on the late 800B schematics as time permits.
