Circuit diagrams and service manuals

The NZVRS library collection of circuit diagrams and servicing manuals is available to members.  Our librarian, Bruce Churcher, is the curator of the original paper copies, and James Davidson maintains the PDF collection.  Approx. 1300 schematics and manuals pertaining to NZ-made valve radios have been scanned as PDF files and this circuit e-library is available to members only on a USB stick. (Note that transistor circuits and TV circuits have not been scanned to date).

The circuit e-library includes the NZVRS collection of high-resolution dial images for making replica dials (see Dial Graphics page)

To obtain the scanned circuit e-library on a USB stick:

1. Email James Davidson ( giving your postal address

2. Pay $20 (NZ address) or $25 (outside of NZ) to the NZVRS bank account (12-3067- 0168223-00) with the references “circuit e-library” and your name.

3. email the NZVRS treasurer David Crozier ( to inform him of your payment.

And, voila, a USB stick will be sent to you!

If you wish to purchase the Circuit library AND the NZVRS Bulletin collection on a single USB stick, the cost is $25 (NZ address) or $30 (overseas address)

We would be very grateful to receive any circuit diagrams or service manuals which are not already in our collection. Please contact Bruce Churcher or James Davidson.
