Anyone have any luck procuring a service manual from Dectro? If so, does anyone have one for the Senior?

The service manual and schematics are Dectro secrets they do not give them to anybody. I asked for my machine SX-500 and this was the answer.

Well that's amusingly absurd; there's not much a competitor could glean in regards to technological methods from a early 90s machine at this point.

Well, after seeing the damage to the unit Dectro techs said they wouldn't be able to repair it for a reasonable price. I guess I'll be selling it for parts : \.

If any of you have a 1st gen senior or, preferably, an SM500 you'd like to sell, shoot me a PM ; ).

I'm not sure of your price point, but there is currently one for sale on eBay. I have no idea if it's in working condition, but it seems to come with all the stuff you're looking for. Have a look here at least.

If I purchase an SM500 w/o the SRAM card, and procure my own card, would I need the machine's security code from the seller or Dectro to format the card so the machine can be usable?

If there is one set. A SM-500 memory card is $300 from dectro ( ask me how I know!) . If you are purchasing a SM-500 without the card, you better get a REAL good price on it.
The default code for access if no passcode has been set is 0000.If you dont know the passcode, well it's going to take you 9999 tries to eliminate all of them.

Okay! Have arranged for a friend in Montreal to personally pick up an SX-500 (that was purchased from Dectro in 2016) that includes all accessories and SRAM card. No more getting a machine that's been trashed in the post...

Also procured tapered probes. Am pretty sure the machine will come with standard probe holders; is there any place where I could procure a K shank probe holder that doesn't require certification credentials? Found an Apulis holder on "electrolysisprobes.com" for 45 USD, but heard nothing of this sites reputation.

Also if anyone wants the Electropil/Senior 1G for parts, let me know!
