I use two 4 foot pieces of extruded aluminum, very straight 80/20, across the mill bed, then use a 12 speed square on top of them, and push the back of the square against the backstops to confirm the backstop alignment.  It should be done at least two times per backstop, once at a full 90 and also partially laid down.  

FWIW, my backstops are set about 1/16 or so inboard so they will straighten up with clamping pressure.  

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Good idea on the 8 foot levels but I decided to go with extruded aluminum due to cost, at least for now.   I did use the one 8 foot level I currently own to adjust in the Clamp Stop and Stop bolts.  That worked well.

Thanks for all the input.  Very helpfull!
