Default Advance DVM1 schematic/manual

Hi all....
I'm new to this site and finding it really useful so far...
I wonder if anyone can help me, I've recently acquired a seemingly rare Advance DVM1 voltmeter and could really do with checking values before powering it up, so if anyone has a manual or schematic circuit diagram that I could take a look at would be really helpful.
Many thanks
Adam

Thanks for your reply Karl,
I did try to email him via the contact option on his page, but as soon as I click send it comes up with an error message.
So the hunt continues!
Wish me luck....

Advance DVM1. I have two battered copies of this manual. The circuit is scattered over about 10 pages. Rather than scan it, I would be happy to post you one of the manuals. With postage for the weight, would 3 be acceptable.
You will probably want to re copy or scan, as the comb binding is disintegrating. But all complete and readable. I have re copied some of the pages also.
As a new member, you will have to ask the moderators to allow you to send me a private message, then we can exchange email and postal addresses, and Paypal details.

Working perfectly after displaying nothing but 000.

Replaced 4 x OA91 signal diodes which were open and now displays very accurate readings for its age.

Big thanks to Bill for the manual!
