How This Works
I stock factory service manuals and schematics for antique tube radios and vintage transistor radios manufactured from the 1920s through 1963.
Factory service manuals and schematics available here as downloads may be purchased securely on-line using any major credit card.
This saves you days of waiting for a response from other sources, waiting for your mailed payment to be received, and waiting additional days for a copy.
Most customers prefer the download PDF versions as they arrive faster and can be viewed or printed on your computer. Once your order is completed you will receive an email usually the same day
or the next day depending on what time your order is placed with a link to download your file (but please allow one to two business days).
For Classic car restorers I have begun listing auto radio schematics on a seprate site. This will help in finding service information for restoring vintage, antique,
and classic automobile radios. This new Auto Radio section can be found at www.AutoRadioSchematics.com.
You can now order original printed versions of many factory service manuals, service publications, and SAMS Photofacts from my library.
These are original service manuals, schematics, and service publications, not copies. Delivery of these original hard copies will usually be via U.S. Mail.
Files purchased here for download are available in PDF format and are individually scanned in high resolution.
This helps to make sure you receive a readable file. You can rotate and zoom in to a PDF file for clearer viewing or print out any pages on your printer.
Select the manufacturer at the left and view the list to see if the factory service information for your model is currently available as a download.
If the manufacturer is not listed at the left select "More Schematics" to view a list of basic schematics available for thousands of additional models.
Select the Manufacturer or Brand of radio you need. If the model you need the schematic for is listed, just enter or select the model number and click the "Add To Cart" button.
Please allow one or two business days to receive your download instructions by email but in many cases, you will receive the download instructions the same day or the next day depending on what time your order is placed.
IMPORTANT: If your model is not listed contact me.
I have thousands of models not listed yet in my inventory and more service manuals arrive every month.
If you are looking for particular service data on any model such as a dial string diagram, tube voltages, etc. feel free to contact me before you make your purchase to see if the file contains the particular data you are looking for.
The "Basic Schematic index" is new with hundreds of manufacturer's and thousands of models listed. More brands and models are added on a regular basis.
Once you find your manufacturer and model listed, select or enter the model number in the order box and click the "Add To Cart" button, you will be taken to a secure check-out page where you can pay via credit card or your PayPal account.
All transactions are processed through PayPal. I do not receive any of your credit card information. If you need schematics for additional models just click the "Continue Shopping" button.
Please Note: Some of the early models listed in the "Manufacturers" section and all the schematics listed in the "Other Manufacturers" section may only contain one or two pages of information.
Most of the models listed in the "Manufacturers" section contain much more. Many of these manufacturer's schematics
were provided to other publishers for reprinting although most listed under "Service Manuals" here contain more service information than was supplied to other publishers. Many of the early schematics were hand drawn
and manufacturer's supplied only a schematic with the parts listed on the schematic itself.
Others such as Philco, RCA Victor, and GE frequently supplied the schematic with many pages of diagrams and service information (Service Manual or Bulletin).
Please see the manufacturer's page for a description of the information provided for that manufacturer.
