Some good tools to own.

http://www.ripsaw.com/  (not for commercial production of

posts, beams, dimension lumber---Woodmizer is better for

that, but very good for producing lumber for small

projects like a house, barn, shed.  Very portable, take it

to the tree---boards are more easily out of the woods than

a long sawlog.
