Making the first pass a perfect one

"I purchased the 9' top rail system with log dogs and screw levelers at the same time I purchased the MKIII portable sawmill and the two go together like peas and carrots. When milling a log, the first cut is the one that means everything because each successive board is only as straight as your first cut. The top rail system allows me to make a perfectly level cut on an 8'6" log every time. The boards I sold from the first cherry log I milled paid for the MKIII, the top rail system, and then some. There is no reason to try and mill anything without it."

"It does its job fairly well, as advertised, and I was not able to find another one on the market at the same price range that would work just as well or better. But I only give it 4 stars because I kind of feel that there ought to be a better system than this, because whereas it does do its job as advertised but the rail system is not very stable and is not firmly anchored to the log when it is being sliced. A small inattention to detail is also noted on the taped threads which are not completely done, requiring me to go out and buy a tape-set to fully cut the threads, otherwise the lug screws will not be able to go all the way in."
