FYI Re dry spruce; 
And this don't always work.

I like to load small end to the front of mill BUT have spun the log end for end after a first cut that showed waves where ever I hit a sizable knot in that first cut. Most times that will solve it. Other time it just changes which way the blade deflects.

Hit the log from the small end blade tends to dive at the knot and hit from the butt end blade tends to climb. I thought I was bonkers the first time I noticed it but its pretty much the way it works out MOST of time.

Yesterday was milling Pine everything was working fine then the blade started diving in the cut . Checked almost everything on the mill , put new blade on still dived , finally noticed lube was stopped up and barely dripping . Unclogged line mill cut fine after that .
