Here is a set of photos of an old Heathkit assembly manual from the 1950s (or possibly the 1960s). Interesting to see how they did it back when a tech writer was a tech writer. Heathkit was a hobbyist company that made kits for assembling various electronic equipment. This one is for an vacuum tube AC voltmeter.

Here's the article this came from, where the guy uses the instructions to build the voltmeter.
