I purchased this EH SCOTT radio from an older lady a few months ago for 100 dollars. Was it worth it?! Anyway, she told me that here son removed the amplifier section about 20 years or more ago to make room for a CD player, that I guess he intended on connecting to the speaker? This amplifier section is now supposedly stored in an old garage on here property that is filled to the rafters with junk. She told me she'll find it in 2 weeks and give it to me, this is going on for about three months! I've tried to contact her a few times now about this missing section and of course she hasn't found it. This will be my first attempt at restoring an EH Scott and I'm not even sure what model this is! Is it a philharmonic cabinet? I've seen radiodaze.com has new dials, but what about this amplifier section? Is this possible to find? Is missing section even called an amplifier section? Is the trim available anywhere? what model do I go by on nostalgia air? :roll:

The cable from the chassis is not connected to the speaker. It's definitely missing something that use to set right here.

Yes that's right. The amplifier is also the power supply.

Yes is a Scott radio - the 30 tube PHILHARMONIC. You have the first version referred to as a "pointer dial" model.
Introduced 1937 and built well into 1938. Is feature laden. The receiver has 24 tubes including the two magic eye tubes flanking the dial. Your painted dial lettering has deteriorated. Radio Daze can provide a good replacement glass dial in the dial alpha list under "E H Scott".
The 6 tube amp/power supply is the same 23 inches long as the receiver width. Also chrome plated, but no tube shields.
Amp tube line up is two 5Z3 rectifiers and four 6L6 output tubes. (The earliest production used 83V rectifiers.tubes instead of 5Z3's).
Tube numbers are embossed on the tube sockets on the edges.
The Philharmonic amp looks very much like the earlier 23 tube Scott amp and the late version Scott Phantom amp, - so assure the amp uses FOUR 6L6 tubes.
*
A number of Scott cabinets were available at various prices. Yours is the WARRINGTON.

Go explore the Scott website http://ehscott.ning.com for discussion threads, and in the archive section, some technical information and also the 22 page owners manual for the pointer dial model..

You might go back to the seller of the radio. Offer to find the amplifier and power supply for the radio you bought in all the junk stored. Even pay some money to find the missing part. Then you have a Scott radio. Well worth the effort.

You might find one on ebay. My guess is that it will cost a few hundred dollars for one with fair chrome. But you bought the radio for next to nothing, so you will still be ahead after you buy the amp. If you attend any radio auctions, one might turn up there. I've seen that now and then. They are out there, just keep looking.

Like Dave said, make sure what you buy is really for that set. It must have four 6L6 tubes (marked sockets for 6L6 tubes).
And have the sockets for the round plugs.

Thanks guys, nothing on E bay right now, thanks for the description of the amp / power supply section I need, I have it written down! ! I did register and post a "need a power supply / amp section" on the EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts website. I hope I can find one, the lady I bought the radio off of isn't going to help!
