Just pulled the trigger on a Logosol Log House Moulder to run on the B751 rails.

 

We’re gonna build a Cabin out the back of the house and with the price of 70mm D profile logs at £18/m it will pay for itself after the first 12m long wall. I’ll be doing them in 6”.

 

 

Anyone used one before?

I've been really interested in one of these but haven't gone ahead with a purchase yet. Please do let us all know how you get on with it (and a video if you fancy!!). Looks like a great piece of kit...

I ended up getting the D-Profile knives that have a double tongue and Grove. Over £1100 just for them!

 

Video-wise there is very little on-line. Even Logosols own vids are quite limited. So yeh, I’ll happily make one myself.

 

I wonder if I could get away with doing the cabin in Norway Spruce?

 

One of the additional benefits is it can be used as a planer up to 24” wide. That will more likely get used than the Log Moulding long term.

Because it’s not a complicated machine? 
 

The Scottish Logosol Dealer has not even sold one let alone got one in for a demo. Even if they did I could not be arsed driving up to Inverness to see one in action. 
 

I’ll just have a play when it arrives. Logosols instruction manuals are well written and their support is second to none.

Well no messing about seeing you in action 😆 All jokes aside pick out good logs which be key to using that but you should have a super log cabin out of it. That will run a treat on your existing setup

Cheers Les. 

 

Looking forward to having a play. Just gotta wait 5-7 weeks to get it. 
 

If I build it in Spruce I’ll have the pick of some good logs at a great price. 
 

Already got the estate I get logs from very interested in having a Log Home built on their land. So could be a nice wee earner, even if I’m just supplying the logs.
