We have a large selection of manuals, tube tester supplement charts, and other paperwork available for sale. Most of these items are listed in our eBay storefront. [Click HERE]
SUPERIOR QUALITY — All service / instruction manuals, tube setup charts, or other paperwork that we sell are real paper (no digital downloads), created from our own factory original paperwork. They have been high-resolution 600dpi scanned, every page cleaned up with Photoshop®, any text/chart mistakes that we are aware of have been corrected, and the final document is laser printed for excellent readability. It is rare to find even a stray mark or fuzzie in one of my documents. They often look better than original.
Tan Bristol cover stock used for front & back covers to add a professional vintage look and better durability. All pages printed 8.5 x 11 inch page size (some documents have 11×17 schematics, assuming the original had 11 x 17 schematics), and comb bound. All pages and covers are black print, no color.
Safe shipping includes placing document(s) inside a cardboard sleeve, then document(s) and sleeve are mailed in a brand new Scotch® brand bubble mailer.
