Hi Mike,

Thankyou for the comment. I realize I sounded almost like I was completely
out of control a week ago, but it damn well is the best manual film
advancing piece of equipment I have ever seen and used. It's light years
ahead of the M-winder by batteries.

It does seem there are quite a few folks who have them and use them
regularly. I expect I will have two that I ordered from Tom in a few weeks
or so. I hope so, but for the moment he has graciously loaned me a personal
one for "practice!":)
