Quick update on this: I have about 20 SASE's sitting here. I just got the copies from the printer yesterday. What a snafu. In the first go-round, they tried to hand me back uncollated, unstapled pages. I looked at it and said "what am I supposed to do with that?" Then the rains came...

But all is well. I am trying to peddle a few copies on eBay to make some money to buy the kids new shoes. They haven't had any new shoes since those ones we got at the bowling alley.... 

Your SASE copies will all go out on Friday and should be in your hands Monday, 9/27. Sorry for the delay.

Subject: Free for SASE: Simpson 260 Repair Manual Copies

Free For SASE:

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.

Anyway, if you want a copy, just send me an 8.5x11 envelope with four 37 cent stamps on it and your address. I will stuff the envelope and mail it back to you the same day. No need to reply to this e-mail. Don't send stamps or cash--just the SASE. Address below.

With any luck, the 260 will be being used by techs long after we are gone...
