FAQ's

Q:  Can I get a manual for free?
A: 
It would be great if everything in the world was free, and I wish I didn't have to pay a mortgage or gasoline for my automobile.  But alas, the world is not perfect and no, my manuals are not free.  I purchased them for a lot of money, and did so as I felt that a substantial library like this would be valuable resource to the DIY community to keep older antique or obsolete gear running.  True, there are places on the internet where you can find some manuals for free, and if you want to search for for them, you certainly can.  Those sites usually harvests manuals from other sites, rely on visitors to "upload" manuals to them, often promising (but not keeping their end of the bargain) to permit you to download another manual in exchange, or rely on advertising or email/contact info harvesting for revenue.  I rely on none of that.  I sustain this website and service purely by relying on the very small revenue stream to keep this site and resource available to you.

Q:  Why is    only available for some items?
A: 
This website is a work in progress.  See ABOUT US page for information regarding the recent ownership change.  Accordingly, I have been slowly updating the look and feel of the website to provide a more user friendly interface.  However, it is very tedious to generate and insert all the code for the individual buy it now links.  Please send an email inquiry for any manual that you either do not see, or where there is no button.

Q:  Are all of the manuals listed currently available?
A: 
All will eventually be made available.  Analog Alley recently moved from mid-America to the West Coast.  Unfortunately, I was unable to take all of the manuals with me during the move.  Most are still sitting in a warehouse about 1500 miles away waiting to be transported to  me.  Consequently, until such time that I am reunited with the remainder of my manuals, I will only have ones that were deemed to be more popular.  To those that have requested manuals that are not immediately available, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.  The good news is that all manuals with a add to cart button is immediately available.
