About 2 years ago I had the V8Q fiche copied (I already
had the original manual, but subsequent changes were
only incorported in the fiche.) I had it done at
the MIT (university) copy center. They charge
Per Printed Page, so, I had them place two fiche
pages on every printed page. The cost was 25cents
per page, so in reality it cost me 14.5cents for
each fiche page. If the fiches to be copied have
been used, even once, the quality of the copy isn't the
greatest, so putting two on a page actually makes
them more readable. Less defects and contamination
show up on the copy.
If you do copy the fiche, go through every page and check
it when you receive it. Depending on the equipment used
there seems to be an inherent problem with some fiche
copiers going out of focus.
... When choosing between two evils, select the newer one.
