Manuals not in the Library (wanted/needed)

Recommended Posts

Hey Mark - add $50 from me to the bidding kitty. It will help us all and I am POSITIVE these will end up selling for a lot more than where they are right now...
 
Of course, getting them added to the library here will be a chore. I do have a decent scanner so I am able to offer help, but we should discuss if / when you win the auction.
 
Thanks for heading this up - I think it could end up being good for everyone here. 
 
I will PayPal you whenever you decide you need it.

I've got access to a very high quality color/black and white scanner through work (we do everything electronically here w regards to mail coming in and going out).
 
 
I'd be glad to scan them in color/black and white and it shouldnt be to big a chore.  Then I can burn em on a CD or email them depending on size and mail em to whoever w the originals.

This is nice. I'm happy to share in the purchase burden as well. I'm going to ask the seller to list the actual manuals in this set so we can compare to what is missing from the library. It could be he doesn't have anything more than we already have.
 
 
Meanwhile about 10 minutes later...........
 
OK, so I asked the seller to list which manuals were actually included noting that many are common and easily obtained.  This was his reply:
 
Hello and thank you for your interest. The manuals are so large and full of model numbers, I just don't have the time to go through all of them. If I did, I would sell them individually as they are typically not available. As I noted on the listing I am fairly certain it is a complete set due to the fact that service organization kept such good complete manuals for ALL of the manufacturers they serviced. If you want to know of a few (up to three) models are included, I will check for you. This is a one-time shot to get all of those manuals at one very low price. Thanks again and good luck bidding!

I spoke to Stan (the seller) he is helping with liquidating a service shop, apparently they worked on Carver gear but were not exclusive to it. I told him I could come by Sat but he said I could call him on the phone and ask him which ones he had and he could read them off.
 
So Mark I'll shot you his # and you can call him this weekend if you have time and have him tell you what he has while your staring down the library. I let him know that Bob Carver just donated all his Carver/Phase Linear service schematics to a member for copying to PDF files, so the manuals were not too rare for us. Trying to play it down so he doesn't get ridiculous with expectations. emwink.gif
 
Also will be nice when James converts all the Sunfire schematics to PDF from the DVD he has them on, seeing since Bob said it was ok now, would like to see those in the library too.

 Add my $25 to the kitty if we need these......
They look to be a decent set someone here should stash.

I figured you guys might be interested in this, I usually get on E-bay once a day (or more) and the first thing I check is the Carver equipment
 
When this popped up I immediately thought of The Caver Site and the good people here and that these could make a very good addition to the site library
 
I didn't know what may be needed or what the seller actually had, but it looked like a good scoreparty.gif

Thinking of the 80-20 rule...  The last 20% of the library gaps will be filled with 80% of the effort, lots of eyeballs scanning the usual sources, collaboration and cost.  Cool to see we're all in on that... Applause
 
Mark, Gene, Greg, I'm in for $ donation to support acquisition & scanning with the goal of sharing in the library (mentioned to Mark in PM a couple nights ago).  
 
I have a couple more things I found not in the library to scan and upload myself... Gotta' get on that.  Whistle

  I think that this is a really cool find. Hopefully it will fill in the gaps where needed. If only there is a service maual for the H9, and DTL. That would be my interest.

I was the first ($50) bid but I will not be bidding again. My goal was to see them end up here in the library so hopefully Mark will win them.

  Since our goal is the same (getting this material in the hands of this site), then it shouldn't matter so much as to who wins, but that they end up here. Am I correct in assuming that many of us would pool our money in order to accomplish this? Or that the person who won would be reimbursed by the others? Since I have limited experience in a site activity such as this I am only guessing.

I wish I would had just brought them at the $170 Buy It Now Price when I first seen it but I have quite a
few things on my plate now trying to save for my move back to Tennessee, If I would had brought them my
intentions was to donate them to the site anyhow because I do not have enough knowledge to make good use
of them but I will put in Twenty to help, just let me know how and when

Heads Up, we have a new bidder that bidded last night
 
Might be better to use a sniping program on this, that is what I usually use and it has befitted me greatly 
 
 Raise my donation to $25 too
