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.

any manual that you either do not see, or where there is no
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
