I have some Heathkit manuals and schematics (SB-101, etc) on Richards
site (also some of the military manuals I have scanned). I use an
8.5x14 scanner and stich them together. I have included the pieces as
well as the fullsize illustrations in some files so one can print out
the parts and tape them together. It is a pain, but the schematics are
the key to repairing these old machines. I have yet to find a better
solution. I, too, am looking for a large format flatbed scanner.
I have tried commercial graphics houses with dismal results. But again,
I would be glad to try and make these diagrams available if someone
would ship me thier originals. I will return the originals after scanning.
