Sounds like you are questioning his experience in this example I showed. I won't try to argue the point. I know who he was and what he knew about sawing with circular saws.
It was shown as an example of what can be done. Will leave it there, or admins can remove it.

I think the question of experience is a mute point on this one. It is a question or risk.  Between Ron and I we have about as much experience with large circle mills as you might find anywhere. Perhaps with more experience yet we would gain the ability to take more risk.

 I'm sure that operation could be done if you were using some sort of special designed fail safe dogging system that maybe bolted the log down, but I would never, ever try that with either normal hydraulic, mechanical or air powered sawmill dogs. Ever.
