It used to be that public libraries (sometimes) had readers that had printing capacity, but the last time I did that (back in the 1980's) it was ~$2.00/image.
I've also been told that if you have a really good scanner, you can scan the sheet at max DPI, then blow up the image to extract individual "pages" from the image of the sheet.

Have never tried this.

You might try asking at a place that deals in farm equipment or heavy equipment, as a lot of the older manuals are on fiche.
Another possibility are older FBO's (aviation shops), back in the early 2000's when I was still active as an A&P, ALL our manuals were on fiche.
