BAYKO Set #4 Instruction Manual -
September, 1959

Altogether Plimpton printed four issues of the sets #0 to #4 manual, primarily for their flagship BAYKO set - set #4. This particular issue was the last.
Print coded September, 1959, this 4th issue manual was technically issued after the MECCANO takeover.
 
The manual was printed by J.H. Leeman Ltd., Leighton Printing Works, Neston, Wirral. It has a full colour cover, the rest of the 60 pages are printed in red, green and black on white gloss paper.
Size - 250mm x 185mm = 9.8 x 7.3 inches.
Number of this version that were printed - 30,000.
4th Issue.
 
 
Page 5 is particularly interesting as it makes one of the very few official references to the newly introduced Garage Doors, two of which were included in set #4, plus the T.V. Aerial and the Ramp.
Pages 6 and 7 in this sets # 0 to 4 manual are unique in including the Garage Doors, T.V. Aerial and Ramp among the set parts' lists.
Page 6 contains an anomally in that the Ramp is missing from the conversion sets contents list, therefore we cannot be absolutely certain that set #1X actually did contain a Ramp!
Page 7 also includes an anomaly in that the set #3X shows the inclusion of a T.V. Aerial, which means that those who reached the set #4 heights via the #3X route would have an extra one!
