Yes, his presence on forums and the great rep he has here are large factors in my decision to go with them. I bet you're right about the one man show with helpers, does seem that way. I've emailed him, Jeff, and the sales email explaining my desire to buy the mill. I suspect I will hear back soon, I can undestand how busy a sole proprietor must be! In fact, I DO want to work with him, because I'd rather support him than Grizz. I agree Matt seems like straight shooter, that's why I'm willing to buy a "return" that he says will work. Hopefully I hear from him soon!
