3.0 out of 5 stars I don't have good enough eyes for the Kindle version. 22 May 2014
By Idphotodoc - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The information is all there, but I had difficulty viewing the illustrations on a 7" Kindle Fire. Even making the font bigger does not enlarge the figures. I looked at a co-workers copy of this manual, and I believe I will order that form of this item and forget the Kindle version.
