A lot of diagrams that we'd like to post here, we can't because they are in the form of Sams' Photofacts, which are a copyrighted product of
Howard W. Sams, division of Bell Atlantic Corp. (We get away with using
portions of these in Dusty Files due to a copyright loophole called the
"Fair Use Provision", which allows use of portions of copyrighted
material as part of a critique or parody. Whether Dusty Files is a
critique or a parody is another question. ). If you want to see if the
schematic you are looking for is printed by Sams, please consult their Photofact Index. Sams'
index goes back to 1946 and a majority of tube amplifiers & tuners
made for consumer use between 1946 and 1970 have appeared in Photofact
folders, as do most tube radios, consoles, intercoms and TV sets (with
some major exceptions, like Fender guitar amps).
Most diagrams for radios, etc made in the USA prior to 1946 were published in Rider's Perpetual Trouble Shooting Manuals. Many Rider pages have be reproduced on line at Nostaglia Air. What they don't have you can order copies of from Steinmetz Electronics in Hammond, IN. Their phone number is 219-931-9316.
Many schematics for German and European amplifiers & radios can be had from Schaltungsdienst Lange.
Manuals for most film projectors and associated amplifiers can be found online at Film-Tech
These two companies offer a plethora of vintage & current schematics and manuals for sale for all types of electronic gear from hifi to ham radio to VCR's & test gear...A G Tannebaum and W7FG Manual Sales
