Heads up, this quarter's MAKE Magazine (MAKE:36) has two kite-related articles in it. One on Peter Lynn and another on how to make a capstan kite winder. If you don't subscribe, it's a pretty cool magazine. They don't always have kite-related articles, but they come up every now and then.

Cool!
Is the winder the same as this one?

Looks like it, although I don't remember seeing the vinyl tubing in the one in the article. Here's a video of it in "action" ... sort of... :)
