So I was at MTE today, wheelin’ & deelin’ for a hummingbird that has caught my fancy, when I noticed a pile of *very dusty* books on a back shelf that I hadn’t pawed through before. Therefore, it’s time for another edition of Ephemera from the Collection of Bill Wahl!
This one I snagged for the top of the pile – I know a lot of you guys have been fancying the Swedish Facits lately, and I know there’s not much available regarding repair info for these little Nordic wonders, so here’s a treat:
Now, This particular pile was something of a treasure trove. I found very nice copies of the Ames general repair manuals, and even a “Rocky’s” manual. Currently there are rather terrible scans of these books floating around the Internet, but the world really needs nice copies, so they’re on the scan list.
Additionally, this pile held 2 editions of the Ames General Catalog, a source I’ve been trying to dig up for ages. The 1949 version is Source #11 in the original TWDB, and these two editions are the 1960 and 1963 editions, but the info should still be there. Very happy about that one.. :D
