We've got one, right here, just not stocked the way I would like  :(

The swingmills.com website should reflect this very soon...hopefully in 30 days or so.

We are always pushing for more inventory here in the 'states.

Well, tomorrow, it is right in front of the house  :)  We'll take pictures.  We don't have a "showroom" per se, just some mills ready to put into action for demo and a few for sale.  The best showroom is on Peterson's Website for now. 

I prefer the test drive to kicking tires anyhow  ;D

Well, I have test drove one of them, but I'm more partial to being able to physically lay my eyes on them all to take all the questions off the table. I hate having to wait for something to be shipped in. That's just me.

Stew

For me the worst part wasn't the wait but the wondering in what condition it would arrive.  While the crate was damaged I think that it was customs tearing it apart because they were jealous. :D

I would think that since the Peterson mills have so many possible options it would be kinda hard to decide which one to send over for stock.

I guess they just need to stock one of each. :)

I completely understand, Stew.  There is a whole lot to see and a whole lot of options to consider.  You've only been exposed to one little sliver of the Peterson Sawmill portfolio...and both of those mills are 3-4 years old to boot, there have been a lot of improvements since then.

Have a great time with Phil down there, looks like you guys have a lot of work to do!!

 Boy, I'm really liking what I am reading here regarding the peterson, I'm thinking about a ASM myself and I was not aware of the microkerf blade for the 10".  What is the cut on that one?  I know the kerf is certainly more that the bandmills will take but if the sawyer doesn't take his time and do a good job, you will wind up with wavy lumber and you have to spend alot more time on the planer or moulder.

I have a micro for my 8" and the max. cut is 6".  I'm pretty sure that it is 6" on the 10" mill also.  Captain will know for sure though.

I'd sure like an ASM.  Maybe someday.

I also think the great thing about the swing mill is the blade learning curve...

There isn't one..  :D

Yep, Tom is right.  6" max depth of cut on the 10" microkerf as well.  1/8" kerf.

 Just want to thank Captain for a very informative day. Getting a in-person demonstration, and hands on experience on the peterson mills is, well, 10 times better than the video.  He is a wealth of knowledge with swingmills, and a strait shooter.

Thanks
