If it helps, I bought a copy of the DEC Professional 350 Field
Maintenance Print Set (MP-01394) on eBay a few months back.
I've scanned it but I've been waffling about where to post it. Scanned
@600DPI with lossless compression it's huge: 1 GB. Saved as an
"optimized" PDF (with very little visible difference) it's 94 MB.
In the short term I've temporarily thrown up the optimized copy onto
I'd love to be able to contribute this to something like bitsavers.
