This is a great youtube video that I watched. Great advice from a veteran sawyer. Check out his channel for lots of good sawmill vids and advice.

1:40 "So you need to be somewhere, kinda, in the middle of the road, not too smart, not too dumb, leaning on smart, away from dumb." 
Ain't that the truth! 
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

I would say for the most part, that that was worth 20 minutes.  I don't usually watch a video that long.  Banjo

I thought so too. I was in the auto repair business for many years and I can relate. I was a much better mechanic then a businessman.

Mike has some great circle mill video too. Hardworking people.
