    I bought a Macbeth RD 514 reflection densitometer without manual. Does anybody know whether it is possible to download it?

    Hi, great timing I just purchased a Macbeth RD-519 densitometer on Ebay today and looking for the manual as well.

    I did discover this link:

    http://karenmadison.com/9375.pdf

    for the RD-519 that shows the manual as being the RD-514, RD 517 and RD-519. She is selling it though, it is not a download. I did download a few Macbeth manuals that are later models and can share if wished, it shows a complete calibration process, perhaps it could be used for general info and help with ours.

    Anyway good luck and if I find it I'll post

    I now have a pdf copy of the manual for the RD-514, RD-17 and RD-19 Macbeth units. It's 6mb+ so I can't post it here but I can send it to people who could use it. I also have the retired tech's contact info for parts and service on these and other Macbeth rigs.

    Hi Craig, I have the Macbeth RD-517 and it just started to go out of calibration. I have the operators manual but I need a service manual or do youn still have contact information to your retired tech's contact info that youn posted. I understand that this is an old thread.
