I’ve milled plenty DF. I’m not convinced it’s DF either. Never had DF wrack bands so fast. 
 

Just as well you’re using an idiot proof fence post maker. Much more forgiving than a Bandsaw. Suits you down to the ground and on the slooooow long cuts you can join the window licking queue. 

Be straight with the guy and just tell him you cannot do the job as machine is not up to it. Simple as that Andrew no if or buts. He can take it to a proper miller then. 🤙

Well that rules you out Legless. Unless he’s needing 3” fence posts I suppose?

Downgrading seems to be a recurring theme in your life.

Douglas fir for sure and you’ll find it particularly hard on blades when freshly felled, leave it sat for a year and it’s fine. Great timber actually, have found many customers prefer it to Larch. Also, turn water / whatever lube you’re using up to the max flow

What does it smell like? Douglas seems to have a very characteristic citrussy smell. Even a bit marmaladey, like a very old dry Riesling I once drank in fact - burnt marmalade, in fact

 

but I was ver ver drunk at the time of course
