So...Steve, The Radio Fox asked Alex Whitaker if he could have all the Rider TV manuals, he'd been looking for a set for quite awhile.

Alex said he'd bring the books to the IHRS Summer Meet. All of them.

Welllll....

Two of my happiest collector moments:

The first, getting a full set of Riders TV large volumes with a set of Riders TV small volumes :roll:

The second, getting rid of a full set of Riders TV large volumes with a set of Riders TV small volumes :lol:

All 28 of them. :D

So, what is the difference between the large TV volumes and the small TV volumes?

Been there and done that.

The smaller volumes are the earlier ones. They changed to the larger format after several years, which made more sense as the diagrams were easier to read, and they didn't have to make as many of them fold out of the book to get it all on one sheet of paper.

Thanks Dennis, that makes much sense.
This set as well as the other set I got from Barry have a small volume 1. Barry's set has a large volume 2 while Alex's set has a small 2.

Barry's only went to 19 with 18 and 13 missing. This is the reason I wanted Alex's set as my grandfather's Westinghouse is in volume 13.

I tore it apart when I was 12 years old. I regret that decision now, but then it was just an old junk TV. I hope to find another like it someday.
Model H-830KU21

As with the Radio Riders set I have, I much prefer a paper copy of literature even if they take up valuable space.

Did the car act squirrely as you drove home? Bet it was easy to do wheelies with all that "ballast"....

Being a front wheel drive car, it wouldn't do wheelies :lol:

I could tell I had a load! It was readily apparent :o

Just look at that grin!

I bought volume 1 from a Forum member a while back; I am on the lookout for the next few.
