SC Model 84 chassis front.jpg
 
1935 Stromberg Carlson Model 84 floor model. I have had this for years
but just yesterday I removed the chassis for the first time. It was
stuck on the large rubber mounts and I had to saw them off with a long
kitchen knife to get it out.
I heard it was serviced in the early 80's and saw where 3
electrolytics were replaced. The repair guy removed the original
chassis mount caps from the top. There was really no reason to do that
except maybe to make a little more room or to show the customer that
they actually did something.

In 1935 the electrolytics were probably the wet type. These sometimes
leak and the chemicals corrode everything around them. Perhaps they were
removed to prevent this.

To get my real email address, replace wrongname with dadoheadman.
Then replace nospam with fastmail. Lastly, replace com with us.

Come to think of it, I did see some corrosion on the large candohm
resistor - which was sitting under where those cans were mounted.

Is there any label stating where it was made? I was told when I was younger that
Stromberg Carlson radios were made here in Rochester NY. I know some companies
had more than one location, but I am curious where yours was made.

I'm pretty sure it was made in Rochester. As far as I know they only
had one U.S. radio factory. They also made Stromberg Carlson radios in
Canada but they had different model numbers and cabinet styles than
the U.S. ones. Those were only for sale in Canada.
I've seen Australian SC's too but they were made only for that market.

I just took a photo of the cabinet label and it pretty much says
Rochester

Yes indeed it does. Thanks so much for the replies and photo. Yet another
Rochester company no longer with us. A shame. They had a reputation for making
quality stuff. I should have remembered they made telephones too.

This is my most prized radio. The quality is excellent. I drove
through Rochester in the early 90's (I spent a month in N.Y. taking
classes in Binghamton) and was amazed at how big Kodak was. It just
went on and on . . .
