Yeah, anyone HAVE one that works?  I've been told that the early types
with the fine wire sandwiched between the glass are failure prone, mine
included.  The later type with the conventional elements glued to the
inside surface are more reliable and also repairable. 

I need one, and I don't want to pay Moss $300 for one. Anyone have one
for sale?
