Philharmonic BOL Deluxe Selectivity Control

If anyone can look at the underside of a red-band Philharmonic Deluxe, I need to know where the switches and the variable capacitors should be at each end of the rotation. After recapping, I realized this set has been played with and I do not believe the shaft is properly aligned with the control. Any assistance would be appreciated!

BTW - this is not the same as a pointer dial set - the Deluxe has an extra wafer switch on the shaft - so hopefully someone has another Deluxe…

Early AW23 differences

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) 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…

Re-acquired Scott Philly in a early 1930's Capehart 300 cabinet

I re-acquired this wonderful Scott Philly AM/FM BOL in a nice huge 1932 circa 1st year Capehart 300 cabinet. I had sold this radio a few years ago to a big dog private collector over in Davenport Iowa. The history of this set goes back to Norman finding this in a habitat for humanity shop in the Denver area. The shop had asked Norman for an approximate value for them to sell it at. After Norman posted about it here on this forum I ended up buying it and had it shipped via craters and…

Scott allwave 23 caps

I just checked the caps removed from J497. There are Potter, Sprague and Aerovox. Not sure how many are original, but those are what I found. Kent gave me an approximate build date several years ago.

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?

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…

WTB Philharmonic Cabinet

Hi All,

I recenty scored two Philharmoincs from a Jim Sargant auction.  Have been sporadically searching for a Philharmonic for years and was relieved to finally hit pay dirt.  In any case, I am looking for cabinets for my new acquisitions.  If anyone has a cabinet surplus to their needs (or knows someone who might) I'd certainly welcome a 'heads up'.  Hope all have a wonderful New Year!

Warrington on eBay

Opportunity for someone - east coast south of Washington DC

item 265451313911.  

WARRINGTON cut for a Phantom Deluxe. Seller has only the AM version receiver and some knobs.

Cabinet seems too dark, so suspect a coat of stain or added dark finish. The speaker cloth is so bright I suspect is John Okolowicz's superior first version repo cloth.

An FM Phantom Deluxe be an exact fit. So would a 19 tube Phantom, leaving a hole below the tuning…

Phantom Power Supplies

I discovered something today that I had never noticed before. Background - I am working on an FM Phantom which has the later Jones plug connector. I just made a crossover cable with a female Jones plug to a standard Scott round plug to test the tuner with a "standard" amp. I was double checking my new connector and saw the 6.3v filament line on the amp I was working with (my working  set in the Stratford cabinet), had the CT grounded. The Jones plug amp with the FM Phantom was grounded on…
