YellowHammer, I have/am taking your advice and pushing my chips in on my circle mill. I am almost finished securing the track extensions, and I think in a week I will be to the point where either the mill or I will win. I was speaking about using this slabbing unit to produce rough sawn lumber for my egg layer house. I know it will be very very very slowww but I need to have it built and finished before the consistent cold/harsh weather comes. 

Thank you all for the responses, I have been leaning towards the individual railing set up so far. Seems like an easier to set up, faster production, and easier to design/execute. That barn door railing is pretty gosh darn genius, but I do not know how it would fare against my current mill, it is a lumbering beast. I did find your vertical adjustment and horizontal support to be helpful!

Thank you all again for the help

Im going to do some form of a track system outside the frame of the motor and bar so that the railing system can be supported infinitely from the side. And I am thinking some form of DIY jack stands/heavy duty/quick adjust/tripod/bottle jack/, or machine shop style with some plate wielding and ratchet straps through the beams to lock it all into place.... I am thinking some 20 ft 2" thick square tubing and welding some simple railing systems atop. Just need to figure out jack tripod. It is rare for a cut longer than 20ft and I have plenty of projects that can keep me busy with this thing for now. I like that it can process 60" plus of wood. Even to quarter things up its a nice tool to have at this stage for me. Any links on how to locate the best tracks, and wheels? or should I just pan through some builds and what not? Thoughts on this approach?
