@ blockhead: The tension comes from within – the cell structure of the wood – there is no way that I have ever heard of to tell if the board will cause trouble. As stated above, all you can do is start to mill and watch/feel closely, then react. Treat each rip – in your head at least – as if it is going to move so you are prepared. I rough cut all my boards oversize before I finial mill – that is length, width and thickness. that way when they move I can still bring them into the right size – but that is a different story then the tension discussion here…
