Super XII Troubleshooting & Alignment

Posted on July 10, 2017 at 8:04am 1 Comment

I've spent several days working on a particularly difficult chassis and learned something I thought I'd share. First, here is what I had to start with: A nice single chassis Super XII. The IF aligned beautifully, and the 3 SW bands also aligned "by the book". The set sounded great on any SW band, AM was basically dead. There are only 3 things that are AM only, so I verified each coil. While checking continuity on the oscillator coil, I happened to notice that the 1K resistor seemed to move a…

A Fast Tour

 

The first step I always take is to remove all the tubes, shields, covers and anything else that can be removed from the chassis. This leaves us with something that looks like this:

Shield Grid 9 SW coils

Posted on February 11, 2016 at 10:03pm 1 Comment

Scott made plug-in SW coils for the Shield Grid 9. I'm researching them a bit and I could use more data points. If ANY of you have some of the SG9 SW coils, please contact me. I've got a few questions for you. Thanks!

Kent;

In a post you mentioned having a check list for the allwave 23. Is there a link to that here?

Having a new transformer made and want to be sure everything else is good. The power supply had been re capped at some point. Haven't looked at the main chassis yet except to determine that it needed one tube which I have replaced. I have the operation and service manuals coming from Great Northern.

Thanks

Kent.....thank you..... I would love more information on the Sheraton cabinet with a Laureate chassis  - if you could provide some PDF's that would be wonderful.  This has been sitting in the corner of my Great Grandfathers cabin ever since I was young.....I never realized what it was until last summer when I uncovered it and looked at it....but I finally took some pictures so I could ask about it.  Thank you again for your time.....I may bug you again with a few more questions when I take a look at it closer this Spring when I am up North at the cabin!  Renee:).   If you'd like to email the PDF's my e-mail is renee54636@charter.net   Thanks:)

Kent, got a quick question.  In photos 19 thru 24 of your photos, what is that device?  I have something like that has either 5 or 6 of those tubes.

Thanks,

Richard

At 4:05pm on December 28, 2012, Kent King said…

That is the Scott FM converter...it changes 88-108 FM down to 42-50 so that the older FM tuners could receive the modern band established post-war. The 717A tubes are used in a number of higher frequency applications. If your device has 5 or 6 of them, it could be most anything....

Thanks,

I'll have to dig it out of the garage tomorrow.  Maybe I can find out more info from google, now what I know it is.

Hi Kent,

I am not sure what to do with this one.  I thought I may be able
to strip it and re-crome, but that would stretch my abilities quite a bit. 
I'm sure I  could get it to work if it was just a re-capp and resistor/coil
check, its not so difficult electrically. All the parts are there. The cabinet is nice, the original owner stripped it so it just needs a refinish.  I really don’t want to pay
much for a good chassis, so I am not sure what to do.  I'll have to check
the serial number and get back to you.

Steve

Steve -

I would like the serial number for my research. Actually, rechroming a 23 will probably cost as much (if not more) than locating a nice chassis....so it you want to get it operating, I'd say "Go for it". You are right, even if it isn't pretty, you will be able to make it play, and it will sound great. It's worth the effort! If you need anything along the way, just ask, folks here are always glad to help!

Hi Kent,

Working on pics and serial #'s, but what is meant by the term "Serbs"?

Thanks, Darrell

Kent;

I have been cleaning up the schematic for the early (Feb. 1946) schematics for the 800B. Here are those two pages. I am working on another page that combines the radio tuner circuit and the electric tuning circuit on one page. The paper size is printable on 11 X 17 inch paper for the two files included here.
