Norwood Introduces New Norwood Log Moulder 410

Norwood Introduces New Norwood Log Moulder 410

            The increased appeal of custom post and beam and log homes has created a demand from sawyers who want to make finished build-ready logs. Norwood has answered this need with its new Log Moulder 410. The LM410 is designed to increase the productivity of loggers, building logs, finished posts, moulded columns, ready for use or sale. The 410 puts commercial-grade log-building and custom log-moulding capabilities into the hands of all sawyers.

            Ashlynne Dale, vice-president of Norwood,, said, “The LM410 came about as a result of hearing our customers. Some dream of building their own log homes. Others, large woodlot owners, see commercial opportunities in building logs and custom-finished, specialty-moulded beams and pillars. The 410 meets all those needs.”

            The Log Moulder’s  throat size easily handles beams as big as 24” wide by 24” high. The real secret to the LM410 is that it works with a sawmill; it mounts on a mill’s rails. Because the log is supported by the sawmill bed, the Log Moulder can  handle oversize, over-length beams and boards that would choke most industrial planer/moulders.

            Norwood’s Log Moulder fits both its LumberMate 2000 and  LumberLite 24 sawmills. Because the 410’s adjustable carriage wheels can be configured from 33” to 38” apart, the Log Moulder also works on the LumberMate Mark 3 and Mark 4 models, and most personal sawmills made by other manufacturers.

            In addition to versatility, the 410 Log moulder is built for efficiency. Sawyers can square a log on their mill, then, without moving the cant, fire up the 410 and immediately plane, joint or mould it. They can go from raw log to fully finished product,  two operations, on a single  platform.
