    Does anyone have information on where to find a manual on staking sets, or a layout of the pieces in original sets, What I would like to do is be able to know exactly what stake and stumps would be in an original set. I have a few used K & D inverto sets and would like to get all the parts to a K&D inverto #18 deluxe set to make it complete and original as possible. as yall may know buying used sets they are sometimes missing pieces, The ones I have are pretty good ones fairly complete and do the job, I am just being picky. Hope that makes sense. William

    Hey Tom, I do not really need a book on the use of a staking tool, more of a diagram of exactly what stakes and posts ect…are in a K&D deluxe 18 set. does the book have that info? William

    William:

    It has just about everything that K & D made – either in the 18 set or as adjuncts to it. That’s all in the back of the book. However, I remember downloading the same stuff from the Internet before I got the book. I didn’t actually order this book – I came with a complete 18 Inverto that I bought.

    This is the same info contained in the book.

    Enjoy!

    William:

    I came across that document when I started out filling in an old K & D set finding lots of parts at Larry’s. You probably already knew that though. ;)

    P.s I happen to have a large color photo of a complete K & D 18 Inverto that was sent along with the set. If you need a copy, I can scan it next week when I get back to work. It shows many of the parts/descriptions/etc. that you may not be able to find from the PDF. At least the decals are still intact.

    William:

    The scanned image of the complete K & D 18R is too big to post here. If you want, just send me an email to my gmail account and I’ll fire it back to you.
