The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Thanks to Jim Sargent (of Jim Sargent Auctions), I acquired my first Scott, a Phantom Deluxe FM (model BFM, sn ZZ455) receiver and power supply which became available in Lubbock TX where I live.
After making initial repairs so I could make "as found" measurements - I discovered obvious volume changes when I change SELECTIVITY. Tuned to noise between stations, using SHARP as my 0db volume reference at the output transformer, the noise is +17db louder when switched to MEDIUM,…Continue

Just a quick hello since I got my account active. Very neat forum. I have lurked and read a lot here in the past now time to add a bit of info.
I just picked up my second 800, a 800-B6, very interesting back story.
More info and photos as soon as I can.
So this interesting chassis landed here this weekend, thanks to fellow member Dave Poland. He brought me a Phantom Deluxe, but I quickly realized, it was originally supposed to be an FM Phantom. In the first two pictures, note the plugged tube holes and the plugs and extra holes on the side of the chassis.…Continue
Greetings Working on the AW23 tuner rebuild.
I replaced the grid cap wire on the ifs. Can I leave it a few inches longer and tuck it back in the can (Im using test probe wire its super flexible) or should they be as short as possible.
Also the condenser trimmers on the ifs have a lot of powdery oxidation. Any suggestions on cleaning? was thinking of alcohol and a flux brush. Or should I just leave it alone?
I'm working on finishing a Masterpiece radio project and I'm trying to round up some missing parts. I'm looking for a set of brass backplates that go behind the knobs for a Phantom or a Masterpiece. Does anyone here have a set of these they are willing to sell?
Today the 800B tuner chassis I bought off eBay for $75 arrived. It seems to have traveled none the worse for wear. I was rather surprised to find that just this tuner weighs as much as my whole SLRM, or seems to just picking it up. I haven't actually weighed it. Now that it has arrived, here are some pictures of it...…Continue
I have these 4 rechromed chassis back together. The second one from the right is completely done and working. The one with the 4 original wet electrolytics (right most one) has had new Nichicon's installed inside them and just needs the wiring completed. The one on the far left had mice go to town on all the wiring in combination with a butcher human working in there, so it will be all rewired from scratch. The AW23 amp (second from left) required I put 2 amps together to make one nice…Continue
Does anyone know where I can find or who might have an eschuteon and retaining clip for a Philharmonic - early version. I have the original glass and front faceplate. Thanks in advance for any help!
Hello All...Anyone out there offer coil winding services or know of someone?
I only have one EH Scott radio that was put together from several Phantom Deluxe radios I acquired. That said, these radios came with some other parts that I have sold or are selling. One of the things that came with these radios is a set of knobs. I have no clue if these are EH Scott knobs, if it is a complete set, what model they were for, etc. Can someone confirm if these are, or are not Scott knobs? Thanks much!…Continue
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.
