Going large with a Panther Mill! Another custom double ended set up.

Yep - it really still all comes down to what works best for you and there are no hard and fast rules. There are so many variables involved makes it impossible to say exactly what is right and wrong. I can only say from using really varied saws it all seemed to work pretty well.
 
I was thinking of getting a double ended bar to run the K095 mount which would allow people to use the smaller Huskys and/or the cheap 62cc saws off ebay to mill.
 
You could then have a pretty cheap setup capable of milling big timber! In theory...
 
 
 
 

That’d be nice so I could run my two 550’s?

With one saw idling the clutch wouldn't be engaged so only the sprocket would be spinning.
False. The clutch on the 076 was engaged and the whole saw was being driven by the 084. When you start milling you are correct, the 076 clutch does not engage but after it has engaged it won't disengage until both saw revs drop.

I'll take your word for it.  Many years ago I had a set up with two 076 heads.  I just seem to remember that one would just tick over if the throttle was released whilst cutting.
