   Yep, I love my SS too. I'm attaching a copy of my cheat sheet I use so I land on my mark every time.

 I open the first face, flip 180 and saw to the final width of the boards I will produce, flip 90 degrees, saw all the round off till I have completely square corners on the cant and flip 180 to the final face and start on whichever mark on my cheat sheet will give the boards I want. Save me an extra cut on almost every cant without leaving a thick or thin dog board too. Enjoy.

BTW - the cheat sheet allows/assumes 1/8" kerf so my SS setting for 1" boards is 1-1/8", 2" boards is 2-1/8", etc.

Is this your first experience milling?  
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

I had a Logosol csm for a number of years. This is my first bandsaw. Sort of like a model T racing a top fuel dragster!

Nice job and mill.  I cant see the gauge too clearly on the video but it looks like your blade tension is quite low, with the point of the needle at the 12 oclock position?  Maybe not, I cant see it well. 
  
The blade tension is akin to the blood pressure of the mill, too low or too high, bad things happen, just right and its magic.  

Have fun!

I noticed you have to keep an eye on the tension. Thanks!
