I agree , better than scorpions! But they did a lot of damage to that tree! My dad thinks they are wood carvers. I have no idea. All I know is they messed up my log and I wasn't happy about it!!

The story is they only chew out rotten wood. While they may prefer rotten wood, I have seen tunnels in completely solid (otherwise) logs. Sort of like the story that subterranean termites only work dead wood. I stopped buying that line when they ate down several full size and growing corn plants in my field and saw them tunneling out from healthy trees. :-\

Muck,
 Congrats on the decision!! I love my mill! For what I do with it, it performs great! The customer service is top notch as well! Keep in mind that its just a hobby mill. Don't expect to go into production with it, but its a great starter mill! The only thing we are talking about modifying are the guides. I spoke with Neil at woodland about it. He sent me drawings of a prototype they tried. The guides work just fine, but I tend to get a little picky sometimes. Anyways, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the hm126!!
