Good luck finding one, I called malco a while back when i wanted another for my other truck and the person I talked to couldn't say why they changed the ruler. Why they changed it is beyond comprehension, what a pain in the butt to use. When they changed their Andy snips all hell rained down on them and they brought it back. Looks like they need some more rain.

Have you checked Lufkin? As much as I dislike box stores, HD shows them in stock the non-circumference one. Also might check Northways Machine. John
