I first came into contact with these back in 1987, when I learned to repair computers, and I considered it a pretty nice kit back then.
Schools would typically buy in a whole set of these, and either make some training-manuals themselves, or they would buy thick lab-manuals from HP for this kit.
I think I still have the manual I used, and may scan in a page or two to show how thorough it was.
From what I have heard, many schools have just thrown these away as they were no longer in use and only took up space, so they're not exactly flooding the vintage-computer markets. If you collect computers and computing-memorabilia, and get the chance, GET IT!
