Hello guys! im restoring a 3178 Model F keyboard. there's a little socket on the back frame, I assume that it holds the 3178 display station operator reference and problem solving guide.


Spoiler:

I want to print a new one and add it as a "Finishing Touch" but i cant manage to find any scan online. Does anyone got this manual? anyone has a scan of it?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

I can't see the image too. Can you please post the manual if you find it? I was searching for one for my own 3178 and there was no use.

I have a couple of those manuals, but they aren’t in very good shape. They have something like oil on the pages, but I think it’s all still readable. Maybe not the best candidate for a restoration?

I've got one, but haven't scanned it. Would be quite a job as it's like 80-100 pages.

There's a lot of info in this guide. Also, this page:

https://archive.org/details/bitsavers_i ... /page/n325

It says there's such thing as a Katakana version, along with the standard and APL. Has anyone found a 3278 with Katakana sublegends so far?

Hi, no worries. I have seen others link this site before so I just remembered that is all. Our information is collaborative and I learn from the forum just as much as you! It is a good resource of various old manuals to check. For ibm as well as others

And there are several 3278 documents

I was also looking for the 3278 display station determination problem guide pdf. Finally after some googling I found it here. Hope it helps someone else.

Anyone have an STL for the book holder on the bottom? Thanks to the book link, the holder is the only finishing touch I’m lacking.
