THE SCHEMATIC BANK

The schematic bank is a site containing free downloadable schematics and servicing information for thousands of vintage radios and phonographs. Antique radio enthusiasts can obtain information here for tube and transistor sets manufactured from 1926 to 1969. Information pertaining to almost all often encountered makes and and models are available, including radios manufactured by Admiral, Atwater Kent, Airline, Crosley, Detrola, Emerson, Fada, Farnsworth, GE, Grunow, Hallicrafters, Majestic, Motorola, Philco, RCA, Scott, Silvertone, Sparton, Stromberg-Carlson, Truetone, Westinghouse, Zenith and scores of others.

The site is easy to use. Simply click on the "GO TO SCHEMATICS" link at the bottom of this page, then select the manufacturer and model number of the radio you are seeking information on and your web browser will display the schematic page(s), suitable for printing.

The schematic files are in DJVU format, so a web browser plugin is required to view them, which can be downloaded by clicking HERE.

For some reason, the browser plugin doesn't work on small number of systems. If you experience problems, you can download a standalone DJVU viewer/creator program by clicking HERE.

There are also searchable electronic indexes of the Rider and Beitman volumes available for download on this site. The Rider index is available HERE and the Beitman index is HERE.
