So I have recently purchased a logosol farmers sawmill. And I was wondering if anyone on here has the same one. I am having some issue aligning the guide rail. I did call bailey’s where I bought it and they gave me one tip that was useful but other than that I got no good info. So if you have one please let me know if your guide rail is straight and cuts well.

Thanks.

I bought a logosol M8 from Bailey’s. Support from Bailey’s has been a little spotty. Sometimes they respond to my emails and sometimes they don’t.

Anyway, I had to spend some time to align the rail. There are instructions in the owners manual for aligning the rail. They involve filing of the piece that joins the rails. I think the piece is called “joint coupler”. However, I used a different method. It would be kind of difficult to explain, but I will try if you want.

You could try searching over here for existing threads that discuss your question, or join up and ask away.

I found that site when doing a tree removal project several years ago.

As for Baileys, they are the retail sellers and may or may not have the level of in-depth knowledge of that product to be in a position to provide customer support on the operation and setup.

Thank you both for the reply. I called bailey’s and ended up talking to a very helpful guy from technical support. He had actually used the farmers mill. But unfortunately none of his information helped solved the issue. And he did admit the farmers mill guide rail did move for him and need to be re adjusted after 5 or 6 logs. Part of the issue is the guide rail is 4 sections of 1meter rail not 2 section of 2.75m as the m8 original is. So you are trying to flatten 3 joints. The supports for the guide rail are just junk really just junk. I have to rebuild them so the won’t move after a couple logs. I also purchased a single section of the 2.75m rail so I only have one joint. I will update the post when I get it working properly.

Have your say...
