Machine manuals

Here's the place to talk about all your table saws, bandsaws, routers and dust extractors. In fact anything that makes noise and uses electrickery.

Machine manuals

Postby 9fingers » 06 Sep 2014, 12:48

I've recently rediscovered this link as an excellent resource for machine manuals having previously posted on TWH1

Covers a good selection of often requested but hard to find manuals.
http://passion-usinages.forumgratuit.or ... nuels-docs

The navigation is in French as are many of the manuals but a little help from google translation should help!
The pictures are in English though :lol:

Machines a bois = woodworking machinery.

Hopefully others will add to this thread as they find other online manual links for extinct machinery still on the secondhand market.

We now have a Dropbox account for manuals and other documents (but NOT photos)
If you want something uploaded the mail it to me at TWH2@minchin.org.uk and I will upload it into an appropriate directory structure.

The drop box account is here
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9lnje4yxbnym ... 9zoha?dl=0

Hope this proves useful.

Daltons website used to be another excellent resource for wadkin/startrite and similar British machines.

The site is being revamped at the moment and the manuals are sadly not available but a message on the is page suggests that they will be available soon.

Another good source of machine manuals is www.advancedmachinery.co.uk or "AMS" for short who have on their website ,most of the wadkin & bursgreen manuals including some that do not appear on the main wadkin site. I have found these people very helpful and knowledgeable regarding wadkin or bursgreen machine spares in the past, I belive they are all ex wadkin.

Bob it would be great idea if we could have a section were members could upload manuals ??

thanks mark.

OK Mark, I've set up a drop box folder as an experiment to hold manuals. Dropbox has proved too slow for photo hosting but I'm hoping that individuals wanting manuals would be prepared to wait a little while to get the manuals.

I've put an inverter manual in as a test so please give it a try and see how it works for you and report back here please.

Not sure what software this forum is ran on but my old forum (MyBB) had an add on that was for uploading and sharing manual directly on the board. Maybe worth a look.

There are a limited number of older Wadkin manuals on the Vintage Machinery site:
http://vintagemachinery.org/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=2238&tab=3

Not much, but certainly a start. And of course you can contribute more if you like.:)
