For all of the vintage "toy" computers that I have made reproductions of one thing stands out,  they all had excellent manuals.  To that end I have created the TMD-1 Quick Start Guide, a small 10 page document that contains:

I don't know if it's excellent or not, but my hope is that this will be all a person needs to understand and use TMD-1. I'm going to try it out on a few people to see if they can start writing programs (without any help from me) . I have posted the guide as a Word doc to the the Files section.
