Which Companies Don’t Want To Share Service Manuals?

By Patrick Lynch

One of my favorite websites is Frank’s Hospital Workshop. It is chocked full of videos and written material that covers the scope of medical equipment. The material ranges from educational offerings, operator’s manuals, service manuals and some do-it-yourself test equipment. But what I want to focus on are the service manuals. Frank has a pretty good selection, but I notice that many of them are not downloadable and bear the message “Download prohibited by name of company.”

I decided to go through Frank’s entire service manual library and record the names of all of the manufacturers who will not share their manuals. What you decide to do with this information is your own business. This is what I found:
