I have a tremendous difficulty finding Heathkit EE-1002, Transistor Circuit Design by Vincent F. Leonard, Jr. It is part of Heathkit Zenith Educational Systems.

Someone left the binders in a hot place such as in the garage or possibly in the attic. There are a few pages that were damaged by being stuck together.

Perhaps one of you may have the EE-1002 pages for copy service at FedEx Office Print & Ship Center or UPS Copy Store.

I will give you a specific section and page number to make the copy. I will pay for the service plus shipping.

Please advise me if you have any questions.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!
Steven

Steven,
I do NOT have the particular course you are looking for.

If anyone is interested I DO have the following courses, in original binders, with records and tests:
EE3101 DC Electronics
EE3102 AC Electronics
EE3103 Semiconductor Devices
EE3104 Electronic Circuits

My dad bought these for me while I was in high school.  These course were extremely valuable to me.  Especially later in my engineering lab courses.
While my classmates calculated out resistor values to 3 significant figures and strung multiple standard resistors to obtain those values for their amplifier lab designs, I used the techniques in these courses to make my designs.

Anyway, I would be willing to part with these if someone paid shipping AND provided high quality scans of the courses.

Anyone interested?

Gery

Hey Steve!   Does your manual have a Heathkit part number  (should be a 7 digit number near the bottom of the pages)?   The Heathkit Education/Trainer group has nothing listed for EE-1002 in the master catalog.  It appears to be rather unknown.

Thank you for your email, I have a lot of Heathkit Education series on my shelves, but the missing one was EE-1002. I finally got it. I cleaned the binders and checked everything.

The only problem was the first chapter, and the last chapter out of each binding was in poor condition due to being exposed to heat.

Your dad made a good decision to get the Heathkit Education series for you. Yes, they are valuable materials, but unfortunately, the original Heathkit was no longer in business.

Hi Steven,

I think I may have this buried in a box, what pages where you looking for?

If you have the complete document, it would be really nice to get it scanned and uploaded to the HeathKit Trainers Group  (I'm a member and can do that if you can get it scanned).  It appears to be a currently unavailable document.

The vast majority of the Heathkit Education courses along with supporting materials have been scanned and uploaded to one of several Heathkit groups - originally on Yahoo - and now on groups.io  Unfortunately EE-1002 doesn't appear to be one of them - it isn't even listed in the master Heathkit pubs list.

I will look, it might take a while and I'm unsure if I have that one, it's been decades since I looked at that stuff.

I tried to scan the damaged pages, and they turned out to be horrible images. It will take enormous hours to restore with an application to remove unwanted images. Someone made a real idiot to put the binders into an attic or garage in Florida. This package is very difficult to find anywhere. I wish that I had the time machine to go back and purchase a brand new one.

At least the manual was saved, even if it did get damaged. Most copies of these are probably in landfills or the paper was recycled.
