I managed to find a Red Dial Philharmonic (1938) in a Wellington cabinet, with a Garrard RC-60 turntable, and the tweeters.  Along with the deal was a pointer dial Philharmonic, in a Warrington.  All…Continue

Alex R. Whitaker replied to jonathan dollimore's discussion Caps under Coil shields on Philharmonic?
"The few Scotts that I've had apart (AW-12 two and 1 dial, AW-15, AW-23, and the Philharmonic) all have components (i.e. resistors and paper capacitors) under the coil shields.  As Kent said, you need to remove the shields anyway, to clean…"

David C. Poland replied to Alex R. Whitaker's discussion Scott Philharmonic jackpot!
"Scott. -  Looked at my notes again. Both 8 and 9 un-used. sorry.  Jones Plug has 21 pins. The flat cable is made up of two 10 wire flat cables, thus 20 wires available. The rear housing has 12 adjustable station presets. The keyboard amber…"

Scott Seickel replied to Alex R. Whitaker's discussion Scott Philharmonic jackpot!
"David, you said that pin 8 is the only prewar pin that is not used.  Where does pin 9 go to?  Best I have figured so far is that only 19 wires were used. "

David C. Poland replied to Alex R. Whitaker's discussion Scott Philharmonic jackpot!
"Alex - glad your insulation is good. For watchers: The post war keyboard cables wires I have seen also feature multi colored wires. My understanding follows with regard to Jones plug numbered pins: -Post war - The wires for the station presets keys…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Dave McClellan's discussion Scott 16 Capacitor Question
"Yes, if the writing on the black beauty is red, it is a mylar film type, and could be reused.  If the writing is yellow, then the black beauty is a paper cap, and is junk.  All original Scott pre-war caps are paper (outside of the mica…"

"Norman, Thanks for your very informative response.  My wires are all cloth covered....the remote and all its wires looks almost new.  The station presets are all from the Dallas, TX area, so my radio must have come from there. …"

"Additional notes: The post-war remotes used vinyl insulated wires. A post war remote can be modified for use with prewar sets. Norman"

David C. Poland replied to Alex R. Whitaker's discussion Scott Philharmonic jackpot!
"Alex - if you have a keyboard for the remote control set, suggest you use it. I had to scrap the last 4 5 feet of cable near the keyboard, for really bad rubber insulation. Tricky to reconnect cable as all the wires are black. Notes on the prewar…"

Alex R. Whitaker replied to Alex R. Whitaker's discussion Scott Philharmonic jackpot!
"Thanks, Dave, I may take you up on that.  I did get an original remote control, with the cable, in excellent condition, with the radio.  If I can't get that to work, your work-around looks to be an excellent solution. "
