LumberLite ML26 Portable Sawmill Options


LumberLite® ML26 Mid-Sized Band SawmillIn mid-2013, Norwood Sawmills rebranded the LumberLite ML26 as the LumberMate LM29 band sawmill. The new larger LumberMate LM29 is modeled after Norwood’s popular LumberLite ML26-series sawmill.  The LM29 features larger log capacity, almost 50% wider maximum board size and an adjustable guide.

Like its predecessor, the new LumberMate LM29 is very easy to use and can “grow-as-you-go” by adding optional attachments as your milling needs evolve.  And, like every Norwood sawmill, the LM29 bandmill is quality-built in the U.S.A. and Canada.

Trailer, Sub-Frame & Support Jack System for the LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 Portable Sawmills
Trailer/Support Jack Package – Tow your LumberLite ML26 on highways behind a pickup* and through the woodlot right to your milling site behind an ATV or pickup.  When you get there, quickly and solidly level the log deck with the adjustable support outriggers. Package includes a sub-frame that rigidly and solidly supports both the log deck and trailer system components. It also includes a solid 1400 pound-rated single axle, 12” wheels, highway running-lights and wiring harness, safety chains, 2” (50mm) coupler and 8 support legs. Note: Maximum of one 4-foot bed extension recommended on trailer-equipped model. (Item No. ML26-41150)

Tip: Add an additional sub-frame section and pair of support legs. (Item No. ML26-41150-B) to support additional 4-foot bed extension.



4-Foot Bed Extension Standard, the LumberLite ML26 mills up to 12’ 8” (3.8m) long.  To mill logs nearly 17-feet (5.0m), add a 4-ft (1.2m) extension.  Or, add as many extensions as you need to mill logs of any length. Each 4-foot extension bolts permanently to the end of the log deck. Note: Maximum of one 4-foot extension recommended on trailer-equipped model. (Item No. ML26-41130)  Additional log rest/dog clamping assemblies sold separately.



Log Loading, Rolling & Ramp System for the LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 Band Sawmills
Log Loading/Rolling & Ramp Package – Load and roll logs onto your ML26 easier and more securely.  Pass the winch cable over and around the log, connect it to the log deck frame and operate the winch – the log rolls up the ramps onto the bed.  It also makes rolling (rotating) the log on the bed a snap, and holds the log firmly for dogging. Enables one person to operate the sawmill alone easily. Package includes two loading ramps, a 2-speed 1800 lb. winch, mast/boom & receiver and log-rolling hook.
(Item No. ML26-41400)



Carriage Cover custom-fitted to protect Norwood LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 sawmills. Also available in Norwood Green.
Saw Carriage Cover – Protect your LumberLite ML26 with a custom-made Norwood cover. Made from the same rugged material used for transport-truck covers – they’re rip, rot and UV-resistant.  Tailored specifically for the LumberLite ML26 to fit snuggly over the whole carriage.  Available in two colors: Norwood orange and Norwood green – it’s your choice. 
  (Norwood Orange - Item No. ML26-41290)  
  (Norwood Green - Item No. ML26-41290G)



Lap Siding & Shingle-Making System fits virtually any portable bandmill.
Lap Siding & Shingle Making Package – Make shiplap siding and cedar shingles quickly and easily. With this unique sawmill jig, cut lap-siding up to 9” (22.5cm) wide, with taper widths down to a feather-edge.  Reconfigure the jigs and make cedar-shake shingles 9” (22.5cm) wide and up to 16” (40cm) long – Each pass makes two shingles.  Two jigs per set. 

Tip: To double shingle production, add an extra set. (Item No. 41270-MK2)



Toe Boards for the LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 band sawmills.
Toe Boards – Trees are wider at the butt making it hard to mill true lumber parallel to the heart of the log. Shimming is time-consuming hard work. Compensate for taper to mill true, high-value lumber fast and easy.  Choose the perfect height for each log thanks to the manual hydraulic bottle jack. Steel rollers make repositioning the log lengthwise along the bed easy. Two toe board units per set.
Note: Image of toe boards mounted on LM Pro shown. (Item No. ML26-41285B)



Board Offloader System speeds up offloading boards on Norwood HD36, LM29, MX34 & ML26 portable sawmills.
Board Offloaders – Offload lumber fast and easy with a set of board offloaders.  Push the fresh-sawn board or slab onto the bunk-mounted rollers and shoot it down to the end of the bed for fast, efficient unloading and stacking.  Quickly retractable so there’s zero interference when milling oversized logs and cants. Four roller assemblies per set. (Item No. 41287)



Clamp cants and boards on the LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 bandmills quickly with the cam dog.
Cam Dog – Ideal for instant clamping of squared cants and boards with a quick push of the handle. Use the standard log dog to clamp your log in the round and the cam dog to clamp squared beams and lumber. The pick’s blunt-nose design reduces marring of your valuable lumber. Clamp as low as ¾” above bunk height.
(Item No. ML26-CD01)



Speeds up dogging and rolling small to mid-sized logs on any of the Norwood HD36, LM29, MX34 & ML26 portable sawmills.  Photo shows system installed on Pro sawmill.
Rapid-Dogging and Rolling System – If you mill mainly small to mid-sized sawlogs 6” - 16” (15 - 40cm) in diameter, this patented dogging and rolling system is engineered to save you time and hassle. You’ll find your sawlog is easy to turn – even by hand!  Dogging is lightning fast thanks to the one-handed, single-action log dog clamps designed specifically to handle mid-size dimension logs. Two units per set.
Note: Image of rapid-dogging/rolling units mounted on LM Pro shown.
(Item No. 41295)



Patented Norwood Dura-Guide band sawmill ceramic blade guides.
Dura-Guide™ Ceramic Blade Guides – Originally designed for the Norwood Pro, LumberMate LM29 owners can now also benefit from the improved performance delivered by Norwood’s patented ceramic guides. The Dura-Guides deliver full 3-sided support to maximize stability in the cut.  The ceramics are more durable than rollers & bearings, they run cooler and virtually silent, and are less affected by sawdust build-up and freezing.  And, because they eliminate blade deflection and down-pressure, they help extend blade life. Kit includes a pair of precision-machined patented ceramic blade guide blocks and shafts, a complete set of ceramic inserts, a template and all hardware. (Item No. MILL-BGCRK)



Patented auto-lube system for band sawmills.
Auto-Lube Kit – Automate the blade lubrication system on your LM29. Water automatically flows when you activate the throttle, and stops when you release.  Saves two operator functions for each board you cut. (Item No. MILL-WLKIT)
