Spring assist or counter weight = same thing only different. Add a brake and there will be no worries.

Check out a SMG Champion mill and see how fast and easy the saw head moves up and down. You can glean all kinds of ideas from their mills they seem well thought out easy to use with centralized controls. With a manual mill you will spend more time handling the log than cutting so any time saved is helpful.

Ya I have looked at the SMG Champion, great idea's possibly the best looking factory made unit on the market.  To bad it is impossible to find any real details about it. Quebec company who is forced by language laws to do most of their website in French I think. Very limited English info.
