I have never seen the Gaffer's handbook you mention, but I can tell you that The Set Lighting Technicians handbook is fantastic and worth every penny.

Hi folks,

IIRC there was an edition of Box's book called the Gaffer's Handbook.
A friend had it. Chris, FYI it's the same as the Set Lighting Techs Handbook. Just a more recent edition. I got mine (3rd) edition for 28 ? off Amazon's marketplace.

Cheers, Dave
