I was checking out some Southfork mining videos, and just wanted to share their saw set up..

Very nice.  That looks like it would do some decent size stone. :)

I can't quite figure out how the rock is held in place though.  I thought it was the chain, but that doesn't look to me like it's holding the rock there.

Yes, it looks much like a motor cycle chain..

The chain is set on top of the one metal post in the front. It is notched to hold it in place. Then in the rear, you can see a nut and bolt assembly that can be adjusted to tighten up the chain.
