Sources of manuals and manufacturer contacts

Sources of manuals and manufacturer contacts

(OP)
From time to time we see requests for manuals - If you find a good source of manuals, either new or used, please post?
Fanuc used to be decent about having manuals for their controls - don't know how far they go back.
I'm going to call Amada, will post back on what they are willing to offer. I don't see a listing for training or documentation. Any suggestions for them, or the other manufacturers?

RE: Sources of manuals and manufacturer contacts

(OP)
For the US, Amada's service group still has some old timers who are willing to dig around.
But that doesn't answer the question of manuals.

Fanuc has manuals for at least some of their controls - for a 0L, they want $32 for the Operator Manual, and $20 for their Maintenance Manual - that is dirt cheap.
