Macbeth TD 501 B&W Densitometer Manual : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I just purchased a used Macbeth TD 501 B&W Densitometer on eBay. The description says that it is in good working order and comes with a calibration film wedge, but no manual or instructions.

Can anyone point me in the direction to obtain a copy of a manual for it? I would be willing to pay some one for the trouble of making a copy of one. Or a web link would be great.

A few years ago, when I acquired an older Macbeth densitometer, I too was looking for a manual. I never found one, but did find a gentleman in NY that worked for Macbeth and is now retired. He repairs and calibrates densitometers and knows lots about them. Unfortunately, I lost his name and number, but I found him by searching the WEB. He offered to send me a copy of the manual, but said it was of little use and instead told me everything I needed over the phone. Wish I still had his info, but searching the WEB may uncover him as it did for me several years ago. Good luck!
