When I am sawing, I prefer all of the workers to be in front of me handling slabs and lumber.  That way, I can stop operations instantly if I see something unsafe, etc.  I never used the board drag back anyway.

I still have the roller tables, etc. that came with my sawmill that I could use if I was set up permanent but since I only saw portable, they are still in the barn where I unloaded them.

I wasn't gona commit any more on this, but I think I will...I am set up stationary...on a con. slab.  I have roller tables behind the mill...first stop...slabs...second and third ...product....I use the drag back for every thing...It slowes me down when people are out in front trying to get a slab or a piece of lumber....I have to stop to keep from putting them in danger....

My mill is equiped with a 15' control box that handles most operations of the cut I can stand any where I want to see whats going on....Like I said before dif. machines set up different each his own...Banjo
