Tauscher board restoration

Started this discussion. Last reply by Norman S Braithwaite Sep 17, 2019. 7 Replies

Hello- I recently obtained a 12" Tauscher board for my AW23 to replace the one that was listed as "discarded" in October 1948 on the paperwork that came with the radio.  Having never seen one before…Continue

Current production Russian and Chinese 2A3 tubes

Started this discussion. Last reply by Troy Taylor Jul 7, 2019. 6 Replies

Hello-My Scott AW23 uses a quad of 2A3 tubes in the audio output. Vintage American-made brand NOS replacement tubes are prohibitively expensive to purchase, so I am wondering if anyone has any…Continue

Hello-In searching for the correct speaker for my AW23, I have found an orphan 12" Scott speaker.  It is not the one I need for my radio, but I will gladly trade it to anyone that can use it in…Continue

"Hello Mr. Strickland- I just realized that this is a recent update to an older question, but thought I would respond anyway.  I have a 15" Magnavox electromagnetic speaker, likely manufactured in 1949, that I removed from my AW23 when I…"

"Hello- I used the socket from a broken 24A tube to make an adapter plug to fit in the tuning meter 76 tube socket for the magic eye kit.  This socket gave me filament power, the necessary grid connection, and B+ voltage.  Then I used the…"

mike hadley replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"Troy; You could remove the 76 tube completley and make up a plug to fit the socket, as all of the signals are there. All you would need to find is a chassis point for the eye tube cathode, completely reversable with no modification."

Kent King replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"For the yellow wire...connect it to the grid lead of the 76 tube that acts as the tuning meter amplifier. That grid is connected to the diode load (AVC). It should give good action on the eye. Kent"

Troy Taylor replied to Cam M's discussion New to all this! Looking for help/advice!
"Hello Cam- To address your question about finding a simpler radio to gain restoration experience- There are far too many radios that would qualify to recommend any particular one, so I would suggest that instead of looking for a specific model, you…"

Thomas Day replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"Hard to tell. The build date seems to be 9th week of 1949, which was getting close to the end of EM speaker production. It could be that the person who replaced the original was able to find one with the right voice coll value and close to the right…"

Troy Taylor replied to Dave's discussion AW 23 Volume Expander
"Hello- I had been listening to the AW23 with the VRE activated to various levels from 0-Full and just was not really impressed.  This may have a lot to do with the fact that I primarily listen to radio shows and hockey games, not music with…"

Troy Taylor replied to Dave's discussion AW 23 Volume Expander
"So today I installed the re-capped Volume Range Expander into the AW23 receiver, as I had no way of testing it as a stand-alone unit.  In addition to re-capping, I also took apart the control potentiometer and very lightly cleaned the wiping…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"The meter looks complete but the last 3/16 inch of the needle should be bent down at a 45-degree angle so at to project a shadow on the screen.  Speaking of screen, it sounds like the one for your set is missing.  You should not be able to…"

Troy Taylor replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"Hello- So I took another look at the dial/tuning meter in my set because I still think it strange that I can see right through everything.  The meter has two empty holes in the sides and two rivets on the bottom edge that are not actually…"
