    Hi, I'm the guy running ebaman.com.
    My name is Tomas Larsson, Living a town called Borås, 70 km east Gothenburg, Sweden.
    I work as a Technical Director in a company developing new environmental friendly and energy efficient refrigeration systems.
    We do Mechanical and Electronic development, as well as embedded programming, all in-house.
    Since we have a complete SMD-line we do all electronic assembly by our-selves as well.

    On my free time (the little amount that exists), amongst other things I run the manual repository ebaman.com.

    I have seen from the logs that a members here has been visiting my site, and I hope you all find my site useful.
    The aim with my site is to be able to supply as much manuals as ever possible.
    I do not care what area the manuals cover, It could be for mechanical stuff like old cars, it could be HiFi equipment, HAM equipment, Computers, Test equipment, you name it.

    Now what's available is completely up to you, because I rely on user contributions.

    There is no cost whatsoever involved, everything is completely free.
    The only catch is that I want my users to register, before downloading or uploading stuff.
    There is also al limit of around 10 downloads/24 hrs.

    All uploaded manuals have to be approved by me, So far though everything have passed, the only reason is that I want to play safe in a way, and I don't want any illegal content such as child-porn etc. by mistake, for obvious reason.

    So to all of you from me, welcome and download whatever you want, just don't forget to upload things that's not there.

    Currently there is some 8900 files on the server split on some 700 directory's.
    So there is plenty of things to choose between.

    Welcome EBAMAN.

    We have a couple of members who are quite active in promoting your site as a place to look for manuals.

    I have found one or two, and submitted a few as well.

    I have also encouraged others to submit obscure manuals to your site as it is non-commercial and fits in well with the ethos of this site.

    Welcome form the Cook Islands (not my usual home) :)

    Thanks steve, I was a little bit wary aboutt this post, since some forums don't like members "promoting" other sites, but I think, that my site suites well in.

    Furthermore, My site is totally No-Commercial, I do however have google ads on the site, but it does not really have any impact on the site whatsoever.

    I get around $100:- a year from google, and since i use the hotel for other things as well, it really have no impact.

    However, I must say, the more manuals uploaded, the better it becomes.
    And furthermore, I must recommend the two main other sites for manuals, bitsavers and bama.
    My aim with ebaman is that it should be one of the main sites for manuals for obscure and legacy equipment.
    As my header says, I want to save our technical legacy for the future.

    Nevertheless, I'm quire active on yor Swedish counterpart, elektronikforumet.com, sorry guys only in Swedish, as well as some yahoo-groups (tekscopes and hp_agilent_equipment), so I guess I wont be that active here, but I always answer questions people might have.

    And by the way, I also host another site, tekmuseum, which is not affiliated by me at all, but run by a guy from the tekscopes group, please visit his site if you a are interested in old tek equipment, the url is tekmuseum.ebaman.com. He was kicked out when his old host desided to shut down, and I gave him, a completely free of charge webspace for his site. The reason, well, I like old Tek equipment.

    You didn't post a link which is a good thing!

    We have no problems with you posting links to your site as long as they are directly relevant to a question asked. Essentially, if it's the sort of thing an independent person would post it's fine. But no marketing or direct advertising.
