Is there a place here to post a pdf of an owners manual for older machinery? I have a few, and, if it would help I could scan them and post them.

OWWM.org has the most thorough inventory I’m aware of

Sparks – you could make a blog of your manuals with the appropriate
“tag words” for each manual so that it will show up in the general
Google searches for anyone that is looking for a particular manual.
or ~ wait until there is a request; then you can fill that need.

Thanks. I was just looking to see if there was a spot, but, in retrospect, if I just post them anyone doing a search will find them. Much simpler that way. I really like how I can do a search here and pull up posts from years ago with what I’m looking for. Lots of stuff to learn here, which is why I’m here!

Vintagemachinery.org is the ‘mothership’ for the OWWM site, and contains a huge collection of manuals, photos and information regarding vintage woodworking and metalworking machinery in a searchable database. They are always looking for additional entries, so if you have any manuals that are not already included in their collection, I’m sure they would love to get a copy.

Cheers,
Brad

Apparently, I’m not good enough at following their strict rules, so we decided on a mutual parting of the way.

That happens to a few of us (the OWWM thing). Besides, that’s only for US made tool…any imports can’t go there anyway (unless they’ve changed the rules).
