- Hi Everyone,
Sorry for cross posting this request but I need to ferrat this out whereever it may be.
Does anyone have a manual for a Challenge Single head paper drill Style E?
I have contacted Challenge and if they have any in their archives they are not admitting to them. I got thestandard response that it doesn't meet ansi standards etc. etc. - you know the drill..... (unconscious pun there!)
If someone has one I would appreciate a scan or a photocopy for which I would be able to cover costs.
