Assembly tools
Common Hardware, parts and materials
Color Code and its Application
Part Numbers, pprocedures and designations
Wire connecting
wire preparation
Mount component with hardware
Cable assembly
Cable and connector assembly
Mount components to printed circuit boards
Miscellaneous Operations
Assembly writeup and operator performance chart

It  also has appendices for hookup wire code, electrical and electronic symbols, color codes, polarity guides, transistor base diagrams, part and assembly designations, tables of useful information, definitions and training excercises.

This is a rare book, rarely seen outside of Collins Radio itself as the information was Company proprietary and contains the very essence of their super high quality procedures and control.   I will sell it for $ 100 and shipping.

All you Collins collectors out there in radio land know how hard it is to find original Collins manuals, so here is your chance.  This is all I have at the present time, but will post other manufacturers manuals at a later time.  I have a very large warehouse full of old electronic books and manuals so if there is anything you are looking for specifically and have not found, send me an email and I'll see I might have it.

Oh I forgot to tell you I can negotiate credit card payments as well as paypal.  First come, first served.  If you see one you want use this secure weblink for ordering from this manual list.  The ordering by card or paypal link is https://www.radioera.com/order.htm
Just reply to this email if you are looking for a manual or want to order via phone or have a question (phone 214-358-5195).

One more thing, as the ARRL winds down on their inventory of the QST-VIEW CD's (they are out of many of the series and are not restocking), I can provide all years from stock as well as the entire series since I was the creator of this series for the ARRL.

Thanks for reading this long post.
