Hi Don,

Just wanted to verify that I read this correctly.
I am assuming that you have or will make copies of this
Simpson 260 info. So all I have to do is send you an sase
with $1.48 postage.   Is my understanding correct?

By the way since I left the Cleveland Ohio area about 1976
I sure do miss those swap meets in Eastern Ohio etc. I really
appreciate your swap meet reports. It appears you really put a
serious effort into passing the info. You do a great job. Thanks a lot.

> Well, maybe I am the last to come across this, but I recently found a repair manual for the Simpson 260 Series VOMs. This was published by Sears, of all people, in 1976. Here are the details:
> "Sears Simpson 260 Meter Repair Program Division 92 Source 260" dated May, 1976. This is about 20 8.5x11 pages with many pictures and schematics. This covers all tests and repairs EXCEPT switch replacement. Switch replacement is not covered (it refers you to Simpson for a factory repair). Models covered are Series 3, 4, 5, 5P, 6 and 6P. Specifics: Lengthy troubleshooting chart, Overload Relay Adjustment, Calibration of all ranges and theory of operation. Photos show parts placement (like a Sams does) and schematics for each model are provided.
