Excellent score, I once found an eight cup Chemex at a thrift store and didn't hesitate.
Since I've broken two Chemexes (including my thrift store score) I have two wood collar sets extra, I'd be willing to post one to you if you like if you cover shipping... just email me if you want to work out the details.

I scored a 12-cup Vesuviana at the Goodwill warehouse (or whatever it was) a couple of months ago...they charged by *weight*. $4 and some change, but it didn't have the pot. I bought a set of gaskets from orpahnespresso, and a pot off ebay (turned out to be a 9-cup...my bad), and cleaned it up. Worked nicely.
