The partnership idea is interesting, but do you realize what you're up against?
I have 7 of the 8 manuals on my desk right now. The stack is over 6" high, and the last manual is at least another inch thick. That's several Thousand
pages to photocopy. The pages are bound, so you can't run them through an automatic feeder, you'll have to stand there and manually press each page down on the glass.
If this gets done, I'll be truly impressed.
