    You can take those to a printing shop and they can scan them into a PDF that you could email to anyone who wants that information.
    They are really neat to look at Lyman 60 years ago.

    Absolutely ! super easy these days. In your computer management app. your should have a icon for Devices. open that and it should list your printer scanner. After that you should be able to click the printer scanner and get a interface asking you what you would like to do. OR you may already have a button on control panel to start a scan.
    From time to time, everyone needs to walk along the river bank and squish the MUD between yer toe's !

    You will get the best results by taking it to a print shop that has a large format scanner. It will look exactly like the original and be readable on any computer as a PDF file.

    I have several of those Lyman/Ideal charts scanned that way. It's the only way to go.

    I'll have to find another printer.
    The guy i went to, closed down.
    He was good and he would give me a good price on printing.

    Went to fedEx and got it to PDF
    FedEx is a rip off, but not to many choices around here.
    So now, how would I send a PDF file to anyone who wanted it?????

    One possibility is to PM Ab an email address that could receive a attachment. I checked for site function to send attachments between members via PM & found only the ability to send images. Does a PDF qualify as an image?
