    Default Building the 1/4 Scale 270 Offy: A Workshop Manual

    I use to own this book; Building the 1/4 Scale 270 Offy: A Workshop Manual by by Ronald J. Colonna but unfortunately it disappeared long ago. It is listed on Amazon here; Building the 1/4 Scale 270 Offy: A Workshop Manual: Ronald J. Colonna: Amazon.com: Books but is currently unavailable. Does anyone know how or where I can obtain a copy? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Gary M.

    Give this link a look. I should also mention that Ron Colonna is a contributor to that link I posted and I bet you could contact him directly.

    None are currently listed at AbeBooks.com but that is the best place to find used books. I would check at least once a day.

    If it's in good clean condition I'd be willing to pay $40.00 plus shipping.

    That's a current build thread by Terry Mayhugh for the Offy 270 in that forum. The builder does an excellent job of explaining and documenting how he fixtures and makes the parts. Well worth a visit if you plan to build one.

    Thanks Daryl, from your link I was able to get in touch with Mr. Ron Colonna at [email protected] and this is what he said "Gary: The pdf file for the complete manual is still available on a thumb drive. The price is $35 plus $5 shipping. You can make the payment through PayPal using my email address. Be sure to supply the address where you want it delivered. Thank you Ron Colonna" so if anyone else is interested there you go.

    I am looking for a copy of Ron Colonna's "Building the 1/4 Scale 270 Offy: A Workshop Manual" Anyone have a copy gathering dust they would consider selling?
