    NEW - restored Service Manual has been posted

    Dear Hammond-heads,

    A couple of weeks ago, with no Hammond related projects on hand (gasp!), I decided to take on the task of restoring the master 000495 manual. It is now complete.

    I had thought (from an idea planted by Wes) to try and offer revisions to the original docs, but that would have become far too involved and would no doubt come under scrutiny from many who did not subscribe to some of the changes. So, the project has remained as simply a restoration rather than incorporating revisions.

    This new version has been completely re-typeset (except where text is part of a chart or diagram), some pictures have been replaced, and some sections (as well as some diagrams/schematics) have been reintroduced from earlier manuals that were not included in the 495 (from sources such as my original 1936-1944, as well as some manuals from the "pre B3" 50s).

    Also - the diagrams/schematics/charts have been scanned in at 600dpi for maximum clarity when zooming in. These scans were taken directly from original manuals of the 50s and 60s, with the exception of the diagrams for the Model E and C2-G. It is in PDF form and bookmarked per chapter. I think it's a more accessible, cleaner version than the one all over the Internet now and should hold a value to anyone who does not have access to an original.

    Here is the link:

    Hope you like. LONG LIVE THE HAMMOND!

    Best,

    Thank You Joey, I guess if we don't find you a novachord, you'll be scanning chord organ song books in before long!
    Thank You for all of your great documentation and enthusiasm!
