Thompson Wing Former in use

Thanks for posting this. I have never seen one before. I have been using a drafting compass as I have never seen the tool that A.K. uses in his video to seperate even wing slips.

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day; he lives in Laporte, Pennsylvania, the second coldest, snowiest spot in the state except for Bradford.
I'm going to go visit him after my weekend wet fly class on Feb. 11 - 13; he's only about 20 minutes from there, up Rt. 239 and I don't know what other road.
Anyway, he has a Thompson wing former and doesn't use it anymore, he's bringing it to my class to see if someone is interested in buying it. I have no idea what they go for, or what it's worth...
If any of you are serious I can ask him, maybe he'd accept e-mail offers to buy it outright?
Let me know, send e-mail please, not PM. For some reason, even though I have e-mail notification replies activated in my settings, I don't get them. (I used to?).
E-mail is faster and direct...
