"I use one of these, Bandwidth is excellent, a good companion for my Philharmonic, plus it uses the whole radio not just the phono input. Mike"

"Thanks Scott and Kent.... and I agree, without knowing the status of the transformers this could be just another boat anchor. ( I have plenty of those now ). I've actually created a functioning power/amplifier for my AW23 that works quite well.…"

"That one would leave me really concerned about the power transformer.  The only way to take those chrome covers off the sides would be to take the transformer apart, unlike the chokes where the side covers just snap on and off.  This one…"

Chrome cover layers

Hello all. I hope you all are well. i have been experimenting with one of the Caswell chroming kits and am encouraged by the initial test results. My intention is to re-chrome the horizontal surfaces of the various chrome covers on my AW15 and AW23. To that end, does anyone know the base metal and metal layering of those pieces. I suspect it would be something like (base metal, copper, nickel, chrome). It seems like I've seen the answer on the forum, but now I can't find it. Thanks SteveSee More
