I bought [a Porta 05] in the 80's and lost it. Much to my surprise I found it stored away last month. almost brand new. What I can't find is the manual. any ideas where I can get a copy?

It certainly would be nice to have the manual in PDF (or DOC or HTML) format! Unfortunately, I never found one.

Here are some ideas:

1) Have you tried calling Tascam? They might have some scans somewhere.

2) Otherwise, I'm guessing your best bet is to try to find a manual ebay or craigslist (although I have never seen one).

3) Or perhaps an owner with a good scanner (and a few hours) can digitize it for you.

4) If you are desperate, you could buy another one and use its manual.

For example, here's one for $60:

Good luck, and please let us know how your hunt goes! If you are able to find a digitized version, I'd love a copy too. I could post it on my site and thus help save other people time spent hunting for it.
