Jarhead- How long are you edging?  If you're cutting 20' stuff, I end up cutting the boards in half before edging.  I don't like to edge over 14' long stuff and especially with a single blade you're gonna have to pass each board back
Boy, back in my day..

I use an old WM single-blade edger beside my LT40HD Super.  Except for very heavy flitches like 16' long, etc. 
The carbide blade lasts a long time between sharpening and I figure it saves blade life and engine hours on the mill.  A lot of engine idling time while stacking and flipping flitches on the mill.
I usually turn the log 90 at a time, and take off slabs/flitches just deep enough so that it will make a straight edge when I start milling the next face.
That way, only the first few flitches (from the opening face of the log), need to go through the edger twice.

Usually edging long stuff.  On this job it will be 12' min with most at 17.5'
