Welcome to Automatic Ephemera, an independent organization/library for historical research and education, sharing public domain documents relating to vintage products. Scanning of all materials is done with the utmost diligence and care to produce high quality .pdf files which have text search capabilities built-in to bring modern convenience to vintage printed materials. Quality printers can print these documents nearly identically to the original document. Maintaining a library as such is a time consuming and expensive venture, all materials have a small download fee to offset the library's many expenses. In order to read these documents you need Adobe Reader 7 or greater installed on your computer. Click here for samples of the Documents in our library.

Thumbnail Image of Download Sunbeam Coffeemaster C30 Operating Instructions and Hang-tag
Rarely do I find the Coffeemaster instructions in good enough shape for scanning, but we recently did so here it is. If you have one of these wonderful coffeemakers, you will be interested to read how Sunbeam recommends you make coffee properly in this pot as well as how to take care of the unit. Not to mention...

One of the biggest thrills you'll get out of your Sunbeam Coffeemaster is the comments of your friends. They'll want to know how you make such delicious coffee every time. When you tell them the secret of your Sunbeam Coffeemaster they, too, will want one.

As silly as that we sounds, we've actually found it to be true. Also included is the rare hang-tag that came with the coffeemaker.
