The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
I have come to own two E H Scott receivers, and I'm deciding what to do with them.
If there is interest, I am willing to part these out, so that owners of better examples can keep theirs running.
These were Brad Kelly's, you can still find his blog post to see pics. I do not have the 800B amp/IF section.
If you have an interest, please contact me and I will see what I can do to help you out.

Looking for ideas - I haven't dug into this too far yet.
I recapped an AW23 (late) and I'm now working on the alignment. Voltage checks were in spec. IF alignment went right by the service data and trimmed out nicely. By the time I got back to the 1st IF, I had significantly reduced the generator output to keep the meter from going over - gain was excellent. On to AM band - 1400 trimmer is super close, slight tweak and then dial down to 600. At about 750, the two neon VR tubes…Continue
Wanted to buy Philharmonic Scratch Suppressor switch. Think same switch was used on the Allwave 16 as well.
I am inquiring as to the value of the attached radio. I appreciate any advice you can provide.Continue
Picked up this one at an auction in Indiana. Disgustingly dirty, but salvageable. Had the 15 in speaker, tweeters, and a Tauscher sound board! Cabinet is good to start...the whole set will require a lot of work but will be saved.
I have my Allwave 23 sitting next to a couple other radios, found this tag on the floor, belong to the Scott? If so where might it have been stuck? I don't see any places inside of the cabinet where this might have been. Also just starting to mount the receiver into the cabinet. Since this receiver was not bolted from the bottom how do you know when it is pushed forward enough? Stop when it is close to the inside front of cabinet, or should there be some sort of spacer, or stops on the…Continue
Hello all. It's my understanding that this forum may be a source for the escutcheon and handle for the band switch on a E.H. Scott AW 15 radio. It would be greatly appreciated if you could head me the right direction on this. Thanks Steve Pierce

I need a schematic for a BFM Phantom Deluxe, Serial # TT-331, 22 tube receiver chassis and the mating power supply/audio chassis. In the meantime, I am referring to other Phantom documentation. Any suggestions?
Does someone please have a good scan of the tag that came with the FM converter, as well as the tag dimensions? If yes, I wonder whether it could be please shared. I need one and I am considering placing an order for a replica. Thanks, Regards, Jiri
Anyone have a set of escutcheons for a beam of light set? Would like to have a complete set with front panel, but at least the large tuning dial brass escutcheon is needed for a set I am building. Thanks
Does any one have a amp as described above?
Question for anyone with AW15 restoration experience.
Have a nice 15 (late) and had the radio working and tuning the broadcast band until the band switch started to loosen.
The set screw on the collar just before the shaft enters the gear box became loose. (Don’t touch anything if this happens to you!)
Needless to say, exact position for the turret, the antenna contact points eccentric cam…Continue
I am working a beautiful original Scott 800-B6 that I picked up this fall. The unit was advertised on E-bay and located only about 3+ hour drive from where I live outside of Milwaukee, WI. So.... I went for it and ended up the winning bidder.
The story goes that it was once owned by a family in the LaCrosse, Wi area. Reportedly the family that originally owned the radio also happened to own a Ford dealership or two in that area. The story I was…Continue
I picked up a tuner and amp at the recent radio auction in Indy, but no speaker. So I am looking for one. It has an octal plug on it and the speaker has two field coils:
One at 680 ohms and the other is 125+65 ohms (it is also split)
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I had to ask a friend to do me favor and make a copy of a paper published in Scott News in 1994. This "new" Scott News were published in 1990's. I wonder whether the issues of "Scott News" have been scanned and saved somewhere. My internet searches were futile. Thanks, Jiri
Boys and girls,
I just got an Allwave 23 and a Model 16. More to be revealed, but the quick summary is both are in " good" original condition.
The Allwave chrome is not great, the Model 16 chrome is pretty nice.
Cabinets and grill cloth are original and appear to be restorable without refinishing.
There may be more available as he sorts through…Continue

Hi - I recently came across these 3 items, and have too many other projects(guitar amp related) to restore these - one tuner is super clean - would there be any interest in the group of 3? I am in Wichita, KS and have no way to ship these, so the would need to be picked up or meet somewhere not too far off from here - any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks - Brad Kelly.…Continue
