So I did finally get around to the KWS-1 that has been sitting idle for a while here at the QTH. The HV filter choke is in transit to get rebuilt and it was time to get to the PA loading and tuning sections which weren't as smooth as silk when turning the pieces. These controls have to be smooth or you will FUBAR up the PA loading and tuning knobs, which I acquired separately from the Xmtr. These knobs are close to unobtainium and cost me a few dollars to buy, so I sure don't want to screw them up. Getting the PA section out was a chore if you never done it before and is still a chore even if you have. The PA section had/has insulation glued onto the bottom of the PA tube floor compartment and that was ate up by rats it looked liked. So another reason to take out the PA section. The PA section is out and I gave the roller induction coils a good cleaning using 91% Isapropyl alcohol only so as not to cause any unnecessary problems when it goes back together. The rod that the roller wheel is mounted on was gunked up with a black susbstance and the alcohol took care of that. Next up will be little Singer sewing machine oil used to lube up the gear wheels a touch to see if these tuning sections can be made to work like grease lighting again. I would like to keep everything together in this endeavor as much as possible, but if the gears do need to come off, to get everything working smoothly again, what is the best way of synchronizing the air caps and roller induction coils, so they are in the proper position to work when put back together? I have looked around and I have found nothing on this via the web so I have come to the true boat anchor resource QTH, here in the Zed forum. Everything looks good on the gears, so once everything gets lubed up again, the PA tuning and loading knobs should turn just like they did when leaving the factory 60+ years ago. As always, any help is greatly appreciated by the real BA techs here in this Forum.
