Recently ordered the Service Manual for the
Marantz 2275. It was done in a very professional
manner which included the factory service notes.
The schematics and images were extremely
sharp and detailed.
03/28/2023: Dennis Bowker
Received my order today excellent service. Had a
manual l could not find anywhere else.
Thanks and will definitely use you again.
03/18/2023: Dave LaPlante
I come from a professional service shop
background, so I know how important it is to
have the OEM service data. I recently began
restoring a 1973 Lafayette amp and did not
expect I would have an easy time locating
the correct manual. This amp has very
specific alignment procedure. A short search
on the internet led me to your company and
the exact manual I needed. Then I realized
this was not going to be just a blurry
download but a proper paper (yes, I can only
work from a paper schematic) bound copy
with fold out schematics. I never expected a
service as yours still existed. I am telling
other's about Manualman and I will be
ordering more manuals in the future. Thank
08/05/2022: JOHN ELLENBURG
Got my manual (VIZ WP707) today. First rate
work, great manual. I will order again. Thanks,
07/29/2022: Theodore Peckler
Manuals are top quality, not some download you
find on the internet. I've purchased several
manuals, Cubic, Atlas, Heathkit. Schematics are
very clear easy to read, in original format not in
pieces (unless done by the manufacturer).
Definitely my go to guy for manuals.
06/25/2022: Ken Mohr
I have been searching for a Gonset GR-211
schematic and manual. Thanks to your service
I finally have a professional manual with a fold-
out schematic at a very reasonable price. Your
web site will be my first choice when I need any
more schematics. Thank you,
Ken Mohr N3RGN
05/19/2022: Scot Thompson
WOW! It is hard to believe the high quality of the manual and the schematic was large and readable. This is the place to purchase manuals from.
05/11/2022: Bruce Macdougall
Received the service manual for my Lafayette LT-725 tuner. It is very nicely done. Printing is crisp and high quality. Pages are bright white heavier bond. Cover is nicely done in heavy bond with a nice tint. Plastic binding is fine. Well packed and included a $3 coupon as a bonus! Thanks.
I have purchased several manuals from Pete over the years. They are always top quality and in some instances better than new. He uses top quality materials to produce the copies.
I just want to thank you for supplying the
manual I had ordered with an enlarged
fantastic full size high resolution fold out
schematic with the Hallicrafters S-118
All of the text was extremely legible and
the diagrams were easy to understand
without “fuzzy,” or “pixelated” text and
MANUALMAN.com will be my first choice
from now on!
12/09/2021: Robert M Owens
Simply put these are the finest quality manual's I
have ever seen or come across. OEM manuals,
reprinted clearly and some come with a large
pullout schematic. I restore vintage analog test
equipment and ManualMan has come
through for me always. 5 Stars and a fantastic
price too. What more can you ask for?
12/08/2021: Chris Johnson
Fantastically reproduced original manuals in their
original format and size, including pictorials and
foldouts. It's rare that such quality is available at
such a great price.
11/24/2021: Bruce Frederick
I just received the second manual I've
ordered from you. Both have been nicely
reproduced and well packaged for shipping.
Well worth the reasonable cost.
I recently retired from a four decade career in
technical documentation and I truly
appreciate the quality standards that you
maintain in your product.
10/20/2021: Tom Sherwood
Ordered a manual for the 1936 GE E-105
radio I must restore. Excellent manual. Way
head and shoulders above what is floating around
on the internet. The internet data is poor and
illegible. There is no way I could restore this can-
of-worms radio without this Manualman manual.
Manualman has always served me well and is
a valuable resource for your projects.
My first order from manualman and I was
amazed of the originality and high quality for such a small price!
Thank you Pete
03/29/2021: Colin Gunn
Received my service manual with some
surprise. The manual was in a user friendly folder with a cover. Crisp clean and readable. The schematics and photos were clear and helped solve some issues with the original build. Looking to rebuild another radio and have returned to the ManualMan for assistance
03/18/2021: Breck Elder
Received my first manual. I was highly impressed! Other sources often provide low resolution copies where much of the information is illegible. ManualMan has the equipment to provide high resolution
images. You won't find better quality anywhere else! Please support him. He is a resource we would hate to loose. I will look to ManualMan for all my needs in the future. He does deliver "High
Quality Vintage Manuals".
02/04/2021: Eric Morgin
Received manual today what a surprise.
Shipped fast, looks professionaly made, spiral
bound and well presented. First class work.
Thanks for your effort.
01/17/2021: Bill Shadid
I just received my Kenwood TS-900 Operating
Manual and also the Service Manual. I could not
be more pleased at the quality of the photographs
and the schematics. Excellent work. And, I am
finding items here that are unavailable elsewhere.
I just ordered the Operating and the Service
Manuals for the Kenwood TS-511S. From what I
had heard for sometime, the Service Manual did
not exist. Well, I had not looked here!! Thank you
for your good work, Pete.
08/25/2020: David Rich
I am extremely impressed by the quality of the reproductions. Once I saw the quality, I put in five more orders in a month. These are the finest I have seen and I have used over five vendors of physical manuals over time. One schematic I purchased, which is available from no other vendor, was listed as poor. What I was sent looked like an original. Pete told me it had been processed with new digital copying technology. ManualMan will be my first choice when I need to order service manuals going forward.
08/11/2020: Howard Jeffrey
Concur 100% with Joe Fellers comments! I
was very pleasantly surprised with the very
high quality of the, I assume, reproduction.
Easily on par with or better than most original
manuals I've received with equipment! Paper
stock and binding very professionally put
together. I'm sure I'll be a repeat customer!
03/01/2020: Joe Fellers
I just received the manual for the 83 YX 787 Tuner that I ordered. What you sent far exceeds my expectations. I was expecting a blurry copy of a scanned document (what I’ve gotten from SAMS) or at best a stack of photocopied pages with a staple. I definitely did not expect a perfect, and perfectly clear, replica of the original complete with binding. This is just amazing. Thanks so much.
Consider me a very satisfied customer.
01/27/2020: Gary Resta
Received my AN/GRR-5 Manual today and was very happy I did not buy the original on-line. This is so much better.
01/21/2020: Ed Brabham
I am amazed to see that many manuals/schematics for my 70's quadraphonic units are still available here. Plus, the print reproduction and binding quality on my first order is absolutely top-notch! Thanks Pete!
12/23/2019: George Myers
Received my copy for a Heathkit
Oscilloscope Model IO-21 which I am going to turn into a dedicated curve tracer.
Calling it a "copy" is a little misleading. I really was not expecting this high quality.
For any manuals I need in the future I will not be looking for a free copy online, now my first choice will be the MANUALMAN manuals.
09/29/2019: Jamie Avera
Received my Optonica SA-5105 Service Manual
today. Totally impressed! It looks fantastic! I don't
know if you actually recreated some of the stuff in
there, but it looks like it came fresh off the press.
The fold-out schematics are perfect. It's obvious
that a perfectionist put this together. Thanks so
06/26/2019: Mike Rivera
I just received a beautiful manual for my
Panasonic RF-2600. Great quality and great
service. Thanks Pete, I'll be back ...
05/08/2019: Dexter Lovrien
Just received manual for Heathkit AR-1500.
Impressed by the VERY crisp quality of the print.
Far easier to read the component values etc. on
the schematics. Also the plastic spline binding
allows laying the manual out flat. No more
splitting of the old binding and pages falling out.
Thanks Manualman, I'll be ordering more soon.
01/25/2019: terrence w. doucet
I purchased a beautifully reproduced copy of a
hard to find manual and schematic from Manual
Man. you won't be disappointed.
fast shipping and good product !
Received my MT-1 manual today. Delivered on time and an excellent reproduction. Every page of the original manual is there, including neatly folded fold out details. Nice spiral binding and every page was copied and bound straight. Very nice quality. Keep up the good work!
09/15/2018: Bill, KD1SH
While you might find what you need in a free download on the Web, much of it will be blurry, incomplete, or barely legible. My manual from ManualMan was clear and sharp, complete, and referenced the correct version of my rig. Everyone loves free stuff, but if you can't read it or it's missing crucial parts, it won't do you much good. For ManualMan's very reasonable prices, you'll get a manual you can actually use.
I had been searching for the manual for months and finally found it here. Professionally built manuals at a great price. Could not have made a better purchase. Thank you.
Thank you for a high-quality product. The print quality is excellent and the paper stock feels very durable. The lay-flat binding makes it easy to read the manual on the workbench. I would highly recommend ManualMan to anyone.
04/24/2018: Terry Dowling
I ordered a Lafayette BCR-101 manual from
Manualman and was amazed at the quality of the
manual. Much better than expected. Great follow
up and communications with quick shipping.
04/01/2018: J. Michael Raby
I received a Lafayette LR-800 manual last week
and am extremely impressed with the quality! The
service was very fast and smooth. The manual
was packaged with care and marked to avoid
bending, etc. I will definitely use MANUALMAN for
any future needs. Excellent!!! Thank you!
03/20/2018: Al Givens KE8HAG
Got my manual today. I was speechless. If I didn't know any better I'd swear it came from the manufacture. I couldn't believe the detail and the extra effort he had put into this manual replication. I can't say enough to describe the unexpected quality of this manual. One might say that it was an overkill of quality. I'll say one thing for sure and that is all my future manuals will bought through the ManualMan. 73
01/22/2018: Randy Allen N4TVC
Pete, Many thanks for all the manuals over the years. I get as much a rush from your manuals as I do from working on the gear. The manuals are truly superb and complete. Easily readable schematics and illustrations. Please keep up the
great work and 73.
01/12/2018: Brian Viera
I would just like to say your manuals
are 100% excellent I'm very very
pleased with the manual that I ordered
and I will definitely do business again I
highly recommend this to my fellow
hams. Thank you again and I'm so
grateful of your service.
12/25/2017: Wade Stanfill
Received two obscure and long sought service manuals. Both were outstanding quality, probably better than originals. To say I am impressed is an understatement. I will order from MANUALMAN again. My highest recommendations.
11/10/2017: Alberto L.
I received a long sought-after manual for a vintage radio tester. I was very impressed at the quality of the reprint. It looks as good or better than an original. I am very pleased and will order again. Thank you!
09/07/2017: Carmelo Napoli
Yesterday I received the manual that I
requested. I was completely delighted to see the
workmanship and the care to which it was
I had and remember the originals.
me say these are better.Thank you.
02/13/2017: howard compton
Today 2-13-17 I just received my CBS manual and
I have to say it is a work of art! It's so nice to have
such a lovely manual for an older vintage piece of
equipment. Well worth the price paid! It arrived in
only a few days. Fast shipping! Thank you!
11/05/2016: Troy Pelton
I looked all over for a manual to an older piece of test equipment I own, the only place I could find it was thru Manualman and I am happy that was the case because the manual I received is by far the best manual I have of all my vintage test equipment manuals. I am very pleased with my new manual and I will do business with Manualman again, great product, great service! Thank you so much and good day.
10/20/2016: Tony Fields (KA8UGB)
WOW!!!! Received a copy of the Operator/Service
manual for a Ten-Tec 585 Paragon
I first noticed the cover - was printed in color like the
factory supplied manuals. However, printed pages
are cleaner and clearer that the original manual I
had. And the schematics, diagrams and photos -
10/05/2016: Mike Stover
Pete: Just received the SB-610 manual and I am impressed. A clean, bound, very clear document. Thanks, I'll be sure and use your service in the future when I need a manual. 73, Mike n9qr
08/24/2016: Gary Moles
Very impressed with the quality of the manual. Prompt, friendly service throughout the transaction. Highly recommended source. Gary ZL2AKI
06/07/2016: Shaun Merrigan
Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent Dumont manual. In a previous career, I worked in digital printing, and I can say without hesitation that from the image quality to the binding you have a top quality product.
05/26/2016: Jamie McKinley
I received my reproduction Lafayette KT-236
manual today and it is a beauty. Honestly, I
can't imagine the original factory manual looking
any better. I am particularly impressed with the
readability of the schematic. So many times the
reproduction schematics look like copies of
copies with poor resolution. That is certainly
NOT the case with the one I received today.
Also, the shipping speed was as good as I could
ask for. Nice job, Manualman. Thank you!
04/04/2016: Larry Knapp
Received my ordered Hallicrafters SX-101A manual today right on the date Pete had said. The document looks so much like an original; very well done. Clear, well printed and comb bound; includes the fold out complete schematic. It came well packaged; inside the mailer the manual was in plastic wrap and inside a folder so the manual would not get folded up. Overall, well done Pete. Will definitely order again.
10/20/2015: Charlie Davis
Outstanding manual presentation. The manual received contained additional alignment information that manuals from other publishers did not contain. Great job Pete....
10/08/2015: Joseph Smalley WA3CKA
WOW ! I Received my DRAKE R8B manual, sure is
a pleasure to see such a professionally done manual.
Thank you Pete.
I received my manuals for a Utica 650 transceiver & VFO and am very pleased with my purchase. The manual is professionally spiral bound with all text and schematics clear, readable and complete. Finding this quality an item for a very unusual rig is a delight.
08/06/2015: Rafael Quiles
Today, I just received the Service Manual for the
Panasonic multiband radio RF-1150, which I
bought recently. The quality of the reproduction is
amazing. The photos and the schematics ,are so
sharp that a lot of detail can be retrieved for this
radio. The finished product (manual) is outstanding.
Excellent quality all around! Best regards.
07/08/2015: Richard Morris
I needed an Assembly manual for a Johnson Viking Valiant and got it from Pete. I have to say you can not tell it from a new one as it is that nice, clean and clear on every page and is by far better than any other I have bought from others. Next time I will know where to look first.
06/15/2015: Phil Beckman
My search for information on my Audimax II turned up nothing but an over copied schematic... until I found Manualman. The manual he sold me was equal to or better than the original CBS book. Absolutely worth every penny! Thank you for providing such an excellent service!
05/03/2015: Dave Doughty
I received my professionally reproduced and bound high quality copy of a hard-to-find operating/service manual for my Lafayette BCR-101 communications receiver in just a few days. The included fold-out pages for the circuit board layouts and schematic were an unexpected, special treat. Thanks for your excellent service! -Dave
02/23/2015: John Whitman
I was so please with the professional, attention to detail, of the manual you sent me. You carry more manuals than any other supplier. Again, thank you so much.
11/13/2014: Joseph Phelps - WB3CZI
I received my service manual today (Kenwood TW-4100A/E) and was astounded by the quality!
The x-ray board views and schematic were crisp, clean and AT LEAST as good as factory!
I don't know how you do it but Thank You so very much for a really excellent manual!
08/04/2014: Donald J. Mangold
I have purchased technical manuals from other sources before ordering from the manualman site. For the most part the previous sources provided the information I requested but the manuals were not up the the quality I just received from manualman. My manuals were of exceptional quality and were promptly shipped. Thanks Pete for providing such excellent service.
06/11/2014: Dr. Gregory Daum
Outstanding customer service and an absolutely tremendous product. The manuals are perfect in every regard. Complete with fold out pages; clear printing; well bound and the satisfaction guarantee adds to the excellence of Manualman. I will get all of my manuals for my vintage equipment through this company. Highly recommended.
04/12/2014: Jack Fisher
The manual I ordered from you for an old RCA VTVM I'm restoring is 100% perfect, worth every penny. Crystal clear pages and beautifully bound ! Even though there are two models of my VTVM the manual had BOTH schematics ! It should be an easy job to get the meter working now with the CORRECT information ! 73 & thanks !
03/23/2014: Randy B
I just received your manual in the mail and I was immediately impressed. It was every bit as good as any factory original manual and schematic. Now instead of a boat-anchor, for just a few bucks I will now have a test device to use that otherwise would cost hundreds of dollars. Thank You for a much needed service.
02/18/2014: Chester Adair
Received your radio manual order. It arrived in good shape and am impressed with the quality of your work. I have been refurbishing some old radio equipment and reselling them. I have received several comments about furnishing the operating manual. It sure helps to bring top dollar if I have a good manual to include. After seeing your quality of workmanship I will be ordering from you when I need a manual.
11/22/2013: Bill Balez
Outstanding service with a very professional looking product. It has provided me reference material which in many cases is unobtainable. It has made my electronic repairs substantially easier to do without having the burden of reverse engineering designs.
09/11/2013: Mike M.
A fine and valuable service. I'm getting to old to reverse engineer any boat anchor equipment that I acquire. Manual Man makes it much easier to get this old stuff up and running.
Thanks for your great service!
08/09/2013: Joseph Goddeyne
My vintage manual looked and felt
like an original.
No lightweight flimsy pages, nor ink lines.
It was as if it were the original spiral item!
07/08/2013: Glen Huestis
I just received my manual and schematic for my Hallicrafters S-94. I was blown away by the quality and professional cover and binder. I will not hesitate to call upon your services again.Thanks Pete.
03/19/2013: Alan Schneiderman
I have purchased 4 manuals now from Pete, and all are super, ten times better than the originals. I will continue to buy from him as occasions arise.
03/02/2013: Les Locklear
I had been using the British version of the Racal RA.17C12 manual with notes until I found your correct manual. The manual looks like an original! Thanks for the fast delivery, Pete!
01/19/2013: Joseph Fell, W3GMS
I have been purchasing manuals from Pete, the "Manual Man" for many years now and am always delighted with the quality of the manual he delivers. My latest manual was for a 1938 Harvey Radio Labs transmitter. To show how much effort Pete put in the manual I ordered, he re-typed all of the original pages to make it more legible. The manual arrived today and the quality was superb. With his attention to detail, that gives confidence that the quality of the manual you get from his service will be of the highest quality possible.
10/25/2012: Efrain, KP4CW
Just got my Flex 5000A manual, WOW!! Top notch quality paper,
have never seen anything of this quality before!
Perfect transaction, fast shipping, awesome communication, great packing, excellent seller!!
does whatever it takes to satisfy their customers!!
very serious - about "High Quality is the Number 1 Customer Priority"
Top notch manual, clear and crisp, nicely spiral bound (lays flat when open), complete with fold-out schematic. It doesn't get better than this. Thanks, Manualman for a first class job.
02/24/2012: Andrew Tostevin
Professional product sent to me in a short time - with a bonus copy of the Circuit and a business card -well that's
hard to beat - I needed a manual and had seen some poor copies with other
manual services....this website/sales area is the best I ever hoped for. Good luck for the Future - and keep up the good work - VK5WT Ham radio.
01/05/2012: John Fitzsimmons
Once again Pete has outdone himself - I just received the epic R-1414 manual which was available nowhere else. As with all of his manuals, it's truly indistinguishable from the original. There is no better source for manuals anywhere. Thanks!
12/13/2011: Vic Hart
Just received the manual for my old Kenwood TS-130 the other day and I must admit that it is actually better than the original service manual. Pete does an outstanding job and his work is worth more than what he charges in my opinion. ManualMan is truly a valuable asset and I hope that he prospers for a very long time. Thanks Pete, great job.
11/06/2011: Kenneth Simpson
I am very impressed by the work that Pete is doing to provide manuals of great quality. Shipping time was great. The prices are excellent. I will be back for more. Thanks
08/23/2011: Patrick Jankowiak KD5OEI
I was mightily impressed at the quality and readability of the SDP-1000L RF Amplifier manual I received today. It's equally impressive that such an obscure document was even available. Time after time, Pete has provided a clean, complete, physically handy, and easy to use manual for the special radio equipment I collect. A pleasing manual brings a smile to one's face when sitting down to the workbench.
Pete: Just received the Flex 3000 manual V2.0....
Superb quality !! I am not sure there is any other "manual" product that is better than this one. For me it was worth the cost.
01/07/2011: Bob Walters
I was expecting good or even great but not PERFECTION. You are on my list..
I repair antique radios and tube amps and schematics are sometimes impossible to locate. Thanks
12/18/2010: Bob Writes:
Pete, the manuals arrived yesterday - I can't believe how good the quality is. If I didn't know better, I would swear they were the originals. Thanks for a terrific product. And thanks for the gift coupon.
08/02/2010: Ron Joseph
I have ordered manuals three or four times and they are always excellent and practically indistinguishable from the originals. The ManualMan turns around the order quickly and gets it "out the door" and into my hands in a short amount of time. You couldn't ask for better quality and service.
07/18/2010: Dick Wolff
I ordered a manual from MANUALMAN for a Kenwood TS-850S. I did not know what to expect when it arrived so promptly. I was amazed that it looked just like the origional with the same type of cover and a spiral neatly holding it together. Fold out pages were all in order. A great value and a well done for Pete, thanks. Dick
Your manuals are of the highest quality. Thanks very much for that.
02/01/2010: Sandman 1031
I am very impressed with the manuals I received. They look a lot better then any download from the internet. The manuals are complete and a lot more then I expected. Now I have a new place to get my manuals.
01/08/2010: John Young
Just bought my third manual from ManualMan. I will keep coming back because the workmanship is incredible. All text is crisp and clean. Multilayer PCB detail shows excellent grayscale detail. Schematics are amazingly sharp. This workmanship is far and above the cheap photocopies you sometimes see from other manual vendors.
12/15/2009: Steve Bento
Excellent and very professional service. Thanks for the hard to find manual!
06/09/2009: Vincent Italia
I have just received the manual. Excellent quality and very fast delivery, only 4 days from the USA to Italy!
And last but not least; a VERY RARE MANUAL!
05/06/2009: Chris Ulrich
I received the two manuals today (04/05/09) and all I can say is:
WOW! I can't tell that these aren't factory original manuals and to get a brand new 45 year old manual, in just ten days, for only 20 bucks is truly amazing. The quality and binding is first class! You must love your work, because I don't know how you can make money on these custom printings at the prices you charge.
Thanks so much
01/30/2009: Ira KB3I
Just received my Lafayette HE-35
manual. What a fantastic reproduction!
I couldn't be more pleased.
Thanks and 73, Ira KB3I
01/08/2009: Ron Ainsworth
Wow!!...You really do good work! I'm proud to have such a fine quality
manual. The printing is great and the content is way beyond what I expected. Not only a service manual but a complete user guide for the Radio and all the related accessories. Also appreciate the $3 coupon. Thanks Ron
12/20/2008: Bruce Stucky
This is the first time I've ordered manuals from Pete and I'm very impressed with the quality. Excellent reproduction and binding and great service. Bruce NK0Z
06/15/2008: Lou, WA5LOU
I received my manuals and was pleasantly surprised. This is the first time I have purchased manuals from you and was expecting much less than what I received. I will be purchasing more manuals from you in the future.
05/18/2008: Peter Bertini
I've ordered numerous manuals from Peter over the years, and I have never been unhappy with his products! Peter offers an important service to the amateur community--at a very fair and competitive price. Thanks Peter!
05/12/2008: Glen Hollyman
I just want to thank you for the wonderful manuals. I ordered 4 manuals, it took all of 3 days for them to arrive. I have never purchased reproduction service manuals and schematics that had spiral bound covers, and also, the quality was fantastic. Thank you so much!
03/30/2008: Renée Deeter
I just received the Kenwood TS-600 service manual. WOW. it is absolutely wonderful and beautifully done.
I have ordered manuals from other places and yours is far superior.
03/03/2008: Joe Lebel KA1IXK
Thanks Pete for the excellent service on these 4 manuals I ordered ...100% as advertised and promised ... nice to have resources like this now available ... just re-licensed here after 20 yrs, maybe can work 75 meter AM sometime! Joe
01/30/2008: marv chandler kd8dkh
I received the 4 manuals. They are great. I"ve ordered another for a new restoring project. Excellent work!
thanks marv kd8dkh
01/24/2008: Tom Shea
Just received my TM-261A Service Manual on Tuesday. It is a superb product and well worth its modest cost. Thanks for a great job, Pete!
01/05/2008: John Wise
Once again thank you for the nice work you did on the manuals.
If it was not for the B&W reproduction, you would think these
manuals came from the manufacturer!
09/07/2007: Derick Ovenall
Just received from you the manual for my Hallicrafters SX122A. I am delighted. It's professionally done at a very reasonable price. Many thanks. Now I can realign it. You are filling a great need for us Boat Anchor Lovers.
02/19/2007: Augusto ELLERO
I received the service manual for my Ampex AG 440 B ; it' s a perfect professional tool.
Thanks a million for the super service on the SP-600 manuals, they
arrived today. They are beautiful! Maybe I can get this old gal up
running with the help of these manuals.
