    You guys that are offering to copy and sell my book are breaking the law. It is copyrighted. I am currently getting set up to sell the manual in pdf format on a thumb drive. Costs will be a lot less than the cost of printing and shipping the manual. Let me know if you are interested and you will be placed on the early mailing list. Shouldn’t be more than a week or so. Thanks, Ron Colonna

    As a purchaser, Ron, I am respecting your copyright in that the product I purchased is an original publication sourced from you. I believe in the work you have done and I am happy to ensure that the pedigree of whatever I obtain is valid. That is actually quite important to me. Although I do not police the actions of others, I do hold myself to that standard. :)

    Oh.... And I am glad that you are offering the plans again in a format that will work for everyone involved.

    I will be offering the entire manual in pdf format in a week or so. It will come installed on a thumb drive. Price to be determined but will be fair and less than what the printed manual had cost. Send me your contact information and you will be placed on the early mailing list.

    Unfortunately he stopped publishing the book a few years ago as it became too expensive to print, ship, etc. The PDF in a stick is his venture back into making the plans available with a reduced overhead. If you prefer a physical book, as I do, then you have two choices... You can print out your PDF (to me, doesn't have the same feel), or find a book that is available on the secondary market. The prices seem to be around $35-$40, shipped via Media Mail, on this thread. I think there were quite a few of these books sold (new) over the years, so it might not be too difficult to get one used. I just picked up a Bob Shores book on magnetos. I prefer hardbound, and it hasn't been in print for over a decade, I believe (soft bound is still being sold). I think that book is harder to find than Ron's Offy (might be wrong), but with a little perseverance, one can typically find (legal) copies of some of these types of niche books.
