    Make sure it is the right design for your application. Big Port rocker boxes are different than Small Port.

    I was talking with Bruce this morning. This printing of his book is now out of stock. He does have a few blemished copies. He is rewriting the new edition now. It will be out next year. The blemishes will probably disappear with greasy hand prints anyway. :-)

    SOLD OUT!

    It may be six to eight months before the book is available again. As soon as more information is available, it will be posted here.

    In the meantime, there are a very limited number of book sets with minor cosmetic damage available. The cosmetic damage is restricted to the 2nd volume. The sets are available for $94 each.
