Sams Photofact, by the Howard W.
Sams Company, was undeniably the big name in electronics equipment service manuals
in the 1947 timeframe, but they were not the only game in town. Rider Perpetual
Troubleshooters Manuals were
probably the next biggest when this promotion appeared in Radio News magazine.
Rider had a very different approach to page layout and content compared to Sams
Photofact publications. No instances of any of the manuals showed up on eBay
when just checked, but the
World Radio website
has many of them posted for viewing.

Rider Manuals Mean Successful Servicing
Manchester-Chandler Has All16
(And Vol. XVII On Order)
"No Shop Can Give Efficient Service Without ... These Volumes"
"Rider Manuals give us the authentic data we need to locate quickly trouble in
sets brought us for repair. This speed means time and money saved, means Rider Manuals
have been a profitable investment for us. We feel no shop can give efficient service
without the information contained in these volumes," says G. B. Manchester of the
Manchester-Chandler Co., Portland, Ore.
So say successful servicemen everywhere, over whose benches you will find well-used
copies of all 16 Rider Manuals. For, during the past seventeen years, money-making
shops have depended upon "The World's Greatest Compilation of Radio Servicing Data"
for authentic presentations of manufacturers' original servicing data on American-made
receivers issued since 1920. This is vital information. Rider Manuals keep pace
with the manufacturers' releases. Volume XVII, just out, contains both FM and AM
sets, record changers and wire recorders. The separate "How It Works" book explains
theory and complexities of new receivers. Hundreds of Rider-exclusive "Clarified-schematics,"
time-saving breakdowns of multi-band jobs, are also in Volume XVII.
Nowhere else but in Rider Manuals will you find such coverage!
