Satamax, thanks, Iíll look into, it.

Stephen1, I donít do much about the set. I just set them to .023, you can see how much sawdust I have on my boards.  They are pretty clean and dry.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

I have started using the new to me wider thicker blades. 1.5" .55 silvertips 7/39 turbo's.
I also read this post at the same time I started the new blades. 
Here are my observations about this issue.
I called it corduroy, from sawing to slow or what we have been told by a lot of people. 
YH brings up and observes  and names it. " Outrigger Wave" or OW
I set up this week at my shop on uneven pavement as I always do. The 4 inner outriggers have to be shimmed as the pavement is not level under the mill. I do not have the FAOR on the inner 4
I used to leave them loose, give them a kick wiggle loose. I would get the corduroy on and off using the 1.25" blades. 
I observed corduroy this week using the new stronger blades very consistantly. I actually sawed some wedges from the log I was sawing and hammered them under the 4 outriggers. The corduroy or OW dissapeared.
I think the stronger blades, result's in us pushing the mill's to motor's limits. The bigger motors give us more torque? You then need to do what YH says and set your mill up to utilize the design of the mill. make sure the outriggers are solid.  
I will have to buy the FAOR for my mill, especially if I continue to use the stronger blades.

The FAOS make quite a difference in set up, especially for mobile jobs.  Shims are a thing of the past.  I will be making wide pads to place below each one for more stability. This is a welcome thread.
