-===== Test Equipment ​Manuals ===== +
-It can be really frustrating to try to fix a piece of expensive test equipment without a manual. ​ There are lots of sources for service manuals, both free and not-free. ​ Here are some of the ones I have found. ​ Please only contribute sites to the not-free section that you have actually done business with (and think deserve a link.) +
- +
-==== Free ==== +
-  * Agilent Manual Search - http://​www.home.agilent.com/​agilent/​facet.jspx?​lc=eng&​cc=US&​t=80039.k.1&​pageMode=TM +
-    * Mostly newer equipment. +
-    * They also have an FTP site at ftp://​ftp.agilent.com/​pub/​manuals/​ +
-  * HP Archive manuals page - http://​www.hparchive.com/​hp_equipment.htm +
-  * BAMA (BoatAnchor Manual Archive) - http://​www2.faculty.sbc.edu/​kgrimm/​boatanchor/​ +
-  * Various Scans of HP Manuals, etc. - http://​www.kennethkuhn.com/​hpmuseum/​scans/​ +
-    * Lots of military manuals for HP test equipment, I found an elusive manual here.   --- //jeff 12/24/2010 20:56// +
-  * K7JRL manuals - http://​www.k7jrl.com/​pub/​manuals/​ +
-  * [[http://​elektrotanya.com/​|ElecktroTanya]] - Insanely hard to navigate, confusing website, but they seem to have a lot of manuals. ​ Limit 2 per day for unregistered users. ​ Mostly in Hungarian, use Google translate. +
-  * KO4BB'​s Manuals Repository - http://​www.ko4bb.com/​manuals/​ +
- +
-==== Not-Free ==== +
-  * ArtekMedia - http://​www.artekmedia.com/​ +
-    * HP, Agilent, Tek, others. ​ I purchased a manual for an old, obscure HP power supply, and when I had problems opening the pdf they were extremely helpful (and created a new scan for me).  Reasonable prices, very high quality scans. ​  --- //jeff 12/24/2010 20:31// +
