    Hi everyone,

    I need your help to find Heathkit manual included schematic and illustration booklet for Heathkit IG-1272, Audio Generator.

    It seems impossible to find PDF for this device as I purchased the device from eBay recently. It would be nice to have information in case if it may need replacement components i.e. capacitors, adjustment to bring to factory specification and other tasks to follow up before the device can be use again.

    Thank you very much

    This site claims to have the complete manual for $20
    http://www.vintagemanuals.com/manual.php?manufacturer=Heathkit&model=IG-1272

    Free information at http://www.nostalgickitscentral.com/heath/products/test.html

    Specifications: http://www.nostalgickitscentral.com/heath/products/test/ig1272spec.txt

    Calibration procedure :http://www.nostalgickitscentral.com/heath/products/test/ig1272_cal.html

    This site says that the schematic for the IG-1272 is almost identical to the AG-9A manual

    The AG-9A schematic is also available on the nostalgickitscentral.com page.

    Thank you for responding but I went through same what you suggest. Only one website was not working on my computer regardless that I use IE9 or Mozilla Firefox. It stated related with my antivirus program and firewall program therefore I rejected that website because too much risky.

    One website does not provide download PDF and it was useless.

    I was told the manual materials for IG-1272 is impossible to find and only chance to wait for eBay may show up for sale.

    I surly missed old days with Heathkit!!!

    Thanks

    I have attached the specifications and calibration procedures as a pdf and two copies of the AG-9A schematic.

    Thank you very much for provide me information and I am waiting for seller to ship the device because I won the bidding. Hopefully, this device will provide me for my electronic workbench and doing future projects.

    I have to keep watch on ebay for possible someone sells assembly/operation manual(s) plus actual schematic and illustration booklet then I will grab it. I really hate to purchase "photocopied" because it tends fade and difficult to view.

    Again, thank you very much

    I realized information from old Heathkit AG-9A schematic was no good. Because it uses tube meanwhile IG-1272 uses full solid state. The circuit was complete different.

    Therefore information from AG-9A did not apply this modern instrument. There are several "proprietary" parts and several unknown because there were no label on components. I need to have full IG-1272 schematic and manual to figure out for modification with present components.

    Anyone of you may have full documentation for IG-1272. Please let me know and thank you
