WTB Speaker for Scott Masterpiece

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?

E.H. Scott Historical Society - Scott News

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

Just acquired :

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.

Pictures tomorrow.

There may be more available as he sorts through…

1947 E H Scott 2 Tuners and Amplifier

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.…

Philharmonic AM/FM

Ever since I first heard of EH Scott radios and joined this forum, I've been looking for a Philharmonic to "fall into my lap". Well, when Ron R. sold me his Marine SLRM I saw his AM/FM Philharmonic sitting in the corner.  When he offered it for sale, I knew I would own it, I just didn't know how soon.  Now, a couple of months later, it's here in my possession.  Thank you Ron!

This will be a major project including some re-chroming.  I want to do the radio and Ron proud!  I…

This chassis, the power supply chassis, speaker and instruction booklet were reputedly removed from a Sun Oil tanker many years ago. The chassis is complete except for the aluminum cover for the oscillator coil and in quite good condition. The date on some of the capacitors is 1933. The only coil pair is short wave, but I do not know for which band.  The power supply chassis has been significantly and poorly modified, butchered really, possibly because if it was on a 1930s tanker the supply…

McMurdo Silver Maserpiece V filter chokes

One of the filter chokes in my Masterpiece V has started buzzing loudly. I've tried tightening the screws, shimming the winding and dipping the choke in wax all with little success so my thought is to have the choke rewound. 

Does anyone know where I would find:

1. Where I would find the value of the MP5's filter chokes?

2. Who would perform this type of service?

3. Would it make sense to have both filter chokes rewound even though only one…

But, circumstances running a business gave me no time to restore. contact me through this website if interested.  You may see some photo's on this site under my name. serial # RR-223.    Priced right!     DON

I have had this radio for 25+ years.

It is all original, and is in working condition.

It has the original grill cloth (gold...with musical note pattern).

Recently my cat decided it looked like an interesting scratch pad.

I am afraid I need to replace it...

Anyone have a source for this item?

Thanks, Dean/Seattle

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and want to say thanks for allowing me to become a member. I've been restoring tube radio's for awhile but recently I came across a EH Scott AW23 in a Tasman cabinet. I've never seen one of these and I'm looking forward to restoring it. The chrome is beautiful and in very good condition. I know little about this radio but I'm confident that I will learn a lot here.

Carr Fire

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…

Phish Tales

All - The moderators removed an account that was a bit "phishy" today. We try hard to keep these folks off the forum, but every once in awhile, one gets in. Please ignore/delete any questionable messages and let's keep on talking Scotts!

McMurdo Silver / Jensen 18 inch speaker

So I finally found an 18" speaker for my Masterpiece V in Clifton cabinet.  The original speaker is most likely in Japan, courtesy of a greedy seller. 

The MP5 amplifier in my radio has a six-pin socket for the speaker cable, and the speaker I have has a cable with six-pin connector as well.  What concerns me are the measured field coil resistances - 3410 Ohms between pins 1-6, and 365 Ohms between pins 3-6, respectively.  Both coils are connected in series.

These resistances…

AW/23 RF Plate Screws?

Hello, I have a AW23 in a Napier cabinet and currently the screws that hold the RF plate are rounded head.  Should I replace them with counter-sunk screws, or are the rounded head screws correct to this set?

Thanks, Eric
