The Scott Radio Laboratories Today

I recently went on-line to see if there is a photo showing what the Scott Radio Laboratories building at 4450 Ravenswood Avenue in Chicago looks like today.  No image was posted although but it was described as having been built in 1895 and that it has annual property taxes of $61,233.  Does someone have a recent photo or photos of it that could be posted here?  What is it currently being used for?

Has anyone ever determined the address of E. H. Scott’s Chicago…

Philharmonic dial indicator bezel

Hello, I just joined the group. An old friend and avid collector of Scott radios gave me a Philharmonic rig (speaker, amp, wooden face plate with the all the indicators) the only things missing are knobs, tuning eyes and the metal bezel that supports the dial indicator glass. My friend had a piece of glass custom cut for it. Anyway, I need a bezel. Anyone know where i can get one or something that would work or ideas on how to fabricate one?

Tweeters offered by Scott radio

Been a variety of threads here mentioning tweeters. And now on ARF, a growing thread on AW-23 tweeters.

Thought a separate tweeter thread here on the Scott site might be useful for newer Scott owners.


- Scott first offered optional tweeters in 1935 with the introduction of the early 5 knob  AW-23  on account of a few new experimental wide band high fidelity AM radio stations at the top of the broadcast band - in a handful of major cities like Chicago.…

Super XII Troubleshooting & Alignment

I've spent several days working on a particularly difficult chassis and learned something I thought I'd share. First, here is what I had to start with: A nice single chassis Super XII. The IF aligned beautifully, and the 3 SW bands also aligned "by the book". The set sounded great on any SW band, AM was basically dead. There are only 3 things that are AM only, so I verified each coil. While checking continuity on the oscillator coil, I happened to notice that the 1K resistor seemed to move a…

EH Scott Model 510 Tuner Service Manual/Alignment

I came into a 510 Tuner recently and have renewed the caps and resistors as necessary.  I have the schematic for the Tuner and also the Power Supply/Audio Amp.  I built my own power supply/amp with 6L6s and a 6SN7 and diode rectification because one did not come with the tuner.  Now I need the alignment instructions for the tuner or better yet, the Service Manual.  Would anyone out there have a .pdf that would help??  Thanks very much, best, Steve

Scott tube shields

All, the Iowa antique radio club is having an auction this Saturday and we've got a box of chrome tube shields that is labeled "Scott tube shields".  I could probably bid on these if anyone wants them.

I have no idea what model they belong to.

Battery Allwave, 6 volt

Does anyone have an idea of what speaker went with the Battery Allwave sets of the early 1930s?

These would be the 6 volt and 2 volt Allwave receivers.

Shield Grid 9 Renewing...........

Hi Kent:  I am working on a Shield Grid 9 now that is in very good shape. I have dismounted the SGA (shield grid assembly) because of low filament voltage on the three 22s - max I can get is 2 volts with 5 volts on the entry bus.  Taking that SGA off and opening it was much more of a chore than necessary because the designer apparently didn't think it would ever be required.  The paperwork discusses the short wave ability of the SG-9 and the need to change the coil in the 630 Antenna…

PBS "American Experience" YouTube "Empire of the Air"

Here's a YouTube link to the PBS American Experience special "Empire of the Air", much taken from the Tom Lewis book. If you like old radio, you'll love this.

Super XII Restoration

A Fast Tour


The first step I always take is to remove all the tubes, shields, covers and anything else that can be removed from the chassis. This leaves us with something that looks like this:


And underneath we have:…

Text Background Color

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.
