Reference Desk

What is the "Reference Desk"?

SpriteSpot.com's Reference Desk serves as a download area for different tech manuals, "how-to" and other reference files--just like the reference desk at your local library.

It is intended that over the months and years, this section will grow as we receive contributions from our members, and that we'll end up with a "library" of materials to help Spridget enthusiasts.

Most of these files are in .pdf format. You can click on the links (to view the file directly) or "right-click" on the link and choose "Save Target As..." if you'd like to save a copy of the file to your desktop for later review.

Workshop Manual

These chapters are available as individual .pdf files primarily because the size of the files precludes downloading the entire manual as a single volume. Please be aware of this if you have limitations in your bandwidth, or are using a dial-up connection.

BMC Special Tuning Manuals

These are individual manuals that still contain valuable reference material and are made available as individual .pdf files. Again, please be aware of your bandwidth requirements, especially if you are using a dial-up connection.

Adding Photos to "SpriteSpot Photos" Tutorial

This is a .pdf file that provides a tutorial to instruct SpriteSpot members how to upload there pictuers to "SpriteSpot Photos" (as their own on-line photo "albums") and then how to use these photos in forum posts. Please see the tutorial for more information:
