BAYKO Set #4 Instruction Manual -
September, 1959

Altogether Plimpton printed four issues of the sets #0 to #4 manual, [assuming issue 2 exists] 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.
This manual only overlaps one sets #0 to #3 manual - the one printed the previous month, in August, 1959.
In many ways this is my favourite Plimpton era BAYKO manual, not least because whenever I carry out across the board updates, this is the last one!!!
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!
