Ditto on the Kudo's, Craig.

One thing that impressed me was how fair the article was to all swingmills, not just Peterson's.  Even the pictures were presented in an unbiased manner.  A class act all the way.

Great piece Craig, I allways have a hard time trying to explain what a swing blade mill is, and how it works. Now I can just show your artical to anyone who asks.

Thanks to all, the article was submitted about 3 months behind schedule, so no I did not give up any sleep.

Actually, Mrs. Captain took the pictures.  I was the director  :)

Looks good Craig.  Sometimes I feel foolish.  I started to read that article and looked at the pictures.  I thought "that is a peterson gaurd".  Duh, I forgot you told me you were writing that article. ::)
