Cut down a dead ERC , the bark was peeling off , there were cracks in ends and lengthwise .I sent Southside some pictures , he said the wood inside would be fine . He was right it was the some of the best ERC I've seen . He's a great person to work with .

Welcome to the forum Poquo.  ERC is a great tree/wood.  I had to look twice to make sure @Southside  had not started this thread himself.   :D :D :D

Don't have a mill yet , but thinking about getting one . I retired recently Machinist (39 years) . I enjoy working with wood more than metal , I love the grain patterns .

Yup, Poquo even got to see what happens when you get too accustomed to hydraulic back stops and use your manual ones instead.... >:(

If you ran 14tpi bi-metal bands those backstops would slow you down but at least you wouldnt ruin the band.

It sounded like an end mill hitting a hardened clamp on a milling machine , but I wouldn't know anything about that. ;)
