Teletype Mod 28 Maintenance Manual

Notebook from Bob Erickson, October 2010

Bob Erickson had purchased an old Teletype Model 28, with a stuck main shaft, figuring he could get it working again, and he did. Bob asked if I would scan his manual and post it so some fellow in Illinois could use the information. - And here it is -

Bob's "Manual" is a three ring notebook, about 1.25 inches thick, with about 25 fold out pages about 24 or more inches wide. Scanning the fold out pages, and stitching them together was "interesting". I tried 5 different free stitch software packages, and highly recommend Microsoft's Image Composite Editor. I tried it with out reading the manual (of course, I are a enjineer) and in 4 minutes it was doing wonderful work.

The manual had no tabs, so I divided it into 4 functional parts - sequenced as in Bob's notebook
