AW 23 help needed

Ok gang...so I have an AW 23 that I fully restored about 4-5 years ago. Played great. For lots of reasons, it hasn't been run much since then. I ran it up on the Variac this weekend, and here's what happened: AM and first SW band are dead, and the osc VR tubes don't light. On SW2 and SW3, osc VR lights up and the set plays great. Good audio on the phono input too.

So I take the tuner apart and check the osc circuit. The grid resistor is significantly off value, so I replace it. Clean…

Update to Scott Info Archive

Fellow member Dave Poland asked me a question about the service manual for the Sixteen. That query made me realize that I did not have the PDF file in the "Scott Info Archive". I have just added two Sixteen service manuals to that folder in the Archive. Both manuals appear to be missing pages 7-8....however. the full size schematic is what spans pages 7-8, so those pages aren't missing, you just need to look at the diagram for those pages.

Please let me know if there is other…

Shielded Grid Wire

Shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is not easy to find but is an appropriate replacement for the shielded wire with rubber insulation (now failing) employed in many Scott models.  A roll of shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is currently being offered at the link below.…

6K7G Vacuum Tubes at AES

I just received an order from Antique Electronic Supply.

Just in case anyone is interested, they have some real nice 6K7G tubes in true NOS condition for only $2.38 each. These are JAN  military spec. tubes with the RCA logo on them. They look real nice and work just fine.

I also purchased a JAN 6J5WGT to replace my 6J5G which was highly microphonic. The tube I received works nicely and it is also a new condition (NOS)…

SLR-M featured in SWLing Post article

The SWLing Post is an excellent blog that I subscribe to. The owner, Tom, featured his recently acquired Scott SLR-M Marine Radio in a story about a short range AM transmitter, the SSTRAN AMT3000. He uses the AMT3000 to transmit music. He then receives and plays it on the SLR-M. A video is included with the story.

The link is:… Continue

The SWLing Post just published a photo tour of the National Capital Radio and Television Museum of Bowie, Maryland. One of the featured radios is the E. H. Scott All-Wave 23. The article is worth a look.

Finally put it all back in the original early 1930's Capehart 300 cabinet. Philly chrome is super nice and plays like a million bucks thanks to Bill L for his electrical restoration

Super 12 help request

Hi Folks,

Haven't been here in quite a while!

I have a question about a Super 12.

I have one I want to rebuild(new cap.'s and resistors). Mine MAY have some missing components. I can see that most of the resistors are 1/4 or 1/2 watt, but are there a few larger wattage one's in there also? Have never located a parts list. I do have all the manuals and schematics.

So my request would be if someone could tell me what resistors are of other power ratings-either by…

Scott Philharmonic 30 tubes 1938 tunning indicator problem.

Hi folks.

My name is Juliano and I am from Brazil.

I have a Scott Philharmonic 30 tubes 1938. I am fixing it, and it is almost all done. The radio is working, but the tunning indicator is still not working (6E5). I verified the signal from valve 6H6 to pin 3 in tunning indicator (6E5), and it is OK. but the indicator is always fully illuminated, and it doesn`t change, doesn`t matter the intensity of the signal.

Does someone have the schematics for this radio? Or does…

The AW27

All...here is yet another one:

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/ele/4711884421.html



This makes the 18th AW27 set. In spite of this number (more of these exist than the pre-war FM tuner), there is no advertising, documentation or really anything on the "Baby-Q".



If you have any letters, documentation, an ad...if you have anything that might tell us more about the AW27,…

Question about original Scott owners.

Hello,

I am new to the list.  Our museum (www.museumofyesterday.org) just acquired our first Scott receiver (an A-15 Metro)  for our communications collection, and I am currently involved in restoring it. Since these were custom built radios, I was wondering if there exists anywhere a serial number listing of E.H. Scott's original clients who purchased sets.

I would like to find out who originally owned the set that we just…

Scott 510 console

I am a new member of this Scott enthusiast group.  Happy to be a member of your group.

I own a Scott model 510 console radio/phono.  It seems to be circa late 1940's.  It is in really good working condition.

Any information fellow members can share with me regarding this model would be really appreciated.
