"Good evening Kent. Excellent pictures as usual and thank you. These pictures will work well. I plan to take one of the existing knobs and use as reference along with your pictures. I have not had time to really study the new grill cloths and…"

"Lance - First, off, yes, all the knobs are the same except the larger tuning knob, so you can use one of the smaller "ship's wheel" knobs as a reference. I'm adding a couple pics that should help you with this...Kent"

"Good morning Kent.        This cabinet looks great! To me, the grille cloth looks amazing considering the age. On the side of the cabinet where the function selector knob is located, would you say there is roughly a half inch…"

"Lance- Here are two pics of the side of the Napier, showing the inside and the outside. My set is original, including the grill cloth. The only thing I did with this cloth was to gently brush it with a camel hair brush and a vacuum cleaner. The…"

"Thank you Scott and Kent for the opinions and your radios look fantastic. Two questions to Kent. 1. Is your grill cloth original on the Napier? I like the looks of that cloth. 2. The wooden faceplate on the radio. Does it sit behind the edge of the…"

"Here is a picture of my Napier. The lighting makes it look flatter than it is, it does have a sheen when viewed in natural light. I agree with Scott, it needs additional finish - but the woodwork looks FANTASTIC. You will really enjoy the set when…"

" EH Scott did state that his cabinets were given 3 coats of shellac, then 4 coats of lacquer (totaling 7 coats) and the final coat was rubbed down with pumice to a smooth glass like surface by an expert polisher.  He stated that this was…"

"Thanks for the input Scott. That was my concern was the Sheen. I was not for sure how it came from the factory. I'm confident it was not coated with 10 coasts of lacquer. "

Scott Seickel replied to Lance Hughes's discussion SCOTT CABINET AND GRILL CLOTH
"In my opinion the sheen is way too low.  (but the repairs look great).  As for grill cloth, the only thing available that is "Scott" specific is the Aztec pattern, and neither reproduction is very good.  You might want to…"

Brad Winder replied to Lance Hughes's discussion SCOTT CABINET AND GRILL CLOTH
"Wow, your cabinet looks nice now! As much as the grill cloth is original...I think it is too faded and worn to put back into such a beautiful cabinet... There are two Scott cloths being reproduced right now. I think the one from Michael Katz would…"

SCOTT CABINET AND GRILL CLOTH

Good afternoon,            It's been awhile since my last post of my Allwave 12. I have been unable to work on the Allwave 12 for awhile due to taking care of my father and his estate while he was in assisted living. Unfortunately, he has recently passed away in December and I'm now dealing with the estate. Hopefully before the year is gone. I will be able to continue full throttle on the restoration process. Having said that, I had my furniture refinisher work on the Napier cabinet and to…See More
