Old Henry James Frame fixture manual?

Hello All,

New to Bike Forums and seeking help. I recently purchased a complete Henry James frame and fork jig (for lugged frames), from the early 1990s. The only thing missing is the instruction manual. I would be happy to compensate anybody that could make a copy of theirs for this particular jig. Likewise, I'd be very appreciative if someone could point me in a direction where I could likely come upon one.

Thank you,

Lefty

Andrew,

The "clamp blocks" are 1" thick aluminum with 4 different half-circle radius cutouts on each of the 4 sides. There is one v-notch top clamp piece held with 2 alan screws for each of the four sided clamp blocks. I am describing them as i do not know if that could also be termed a universal tube support. Intuition says they are the older clamp blocks you are referring to.

Thank you,

Lefty

Lefty- I have copied the older manual, that matches with your tube blocks and vintage. 33 pages and 6oz of mailing weight. With common first class mailing that's about $1.75 in postage. How about $5 for printing and mailing?

Here's my email: onetenth at earthlink dot net. We can take this off forum for address and payment. Andy
