That's interesting, I didn't realize mesquite was such a hard wood, even harder than the pecan I have milled before. I've always heard that (dry) wood gets harder with age, and the stuff I have was cut 30+ years ago, so I would imagine its quite a bit harder than green mesquite. I know running the mill at too low of a feed rate causes its own set of problems, I guess I'll just have to take it easy. Fortunately none of the logs are very big, 3 or 4 feet at the most, maybe 12" dia max with 1 or 2 short pieces 15" dia or so.
