But I think I would rather work with a 70 year old man than some much younger. The old one will probably step up and see you need help without being asked or told.  :) But than again you never know either.
I had one guy at a job,could see I needed a hand at 100 feet away and come over and help. While one 5 feet away would have no idea.

There are hand set mills that are semi automatic.  The dogs, tapers, and set shaft jog are push button. also would have a log turner.  You just can't set on the fly.

Well I am not getting a circle saw. I have been sawing some on my old mill while Scott saws with the new one. We have made pretty good time sawing out some weekly orders and made more time for us to saw out ties and grade. Getting right along with 2 bandmills.

Thanks for the input.
