I am looking to buy an oscillator coil for a Philco Model 84. The Philco part no. is 32-1311. If anyone has a cross-reference book, I would be interested in knowing the number of the Miller and/or Meissner equivalent.

Thanks for your help.

There is no Miller or other sub for that. You take the old one out, back off the osc coil on the form (its only about 22 turns or so) and wind new wire onto the form... the EXACT way it was done. Use #34 ga enameled wire, also called "magnet wire".

Not super hard to do, the trick is to keep some tension on the wire as you are winding. To do that, I place the wire spool on my lap and have it feed off there. the spool must rotate, you dont want the wire unspooling off the side of the spool, you will loose your tension.

this ailment is common on the Philco 60, 66, 84, 89 (and the 37-xx versions of those as I recall)

Thanks, Mark. However, my problem is that some prior owner already removed the oscillator coil so I'm sort of stuck. Might you have something that would work?

Hi Joe. I probably have one. Is this coil about 1 inch or so in diameter and about 3 inches high? I have a complete set of coils from a philco 89.

I wouldnt use the model 89 osc coil. First off, these all suffer the same problem, the insulation on the wire is crappy and the wire corrodes. The model 89's have even worse track record than the 84's. Also, I dont think they are the same. If it is the same, rewind it, dont use as is.

For an explanation of the why and how on rewinding the coil once you get your hands on one, see the following:
