Vertical Log Posts – Vertical log post system bolts directly to the LumberMate 2000’s cross-bunks and offers perfect squaring of cants.  When used alone, vertical log posts are ideal for squaring cants and small-diameter logs.  When used with the standard log posts, they provide additional support when milling large-diameter logs.  Mount units to any cross-bunk station to suit your specific milling requirements.  Set includes two 18” posts, brackets and hardware. (LumberMate 2000: Item No. LM2K-LPVK)

Dura-Guide™ Ceramic Blade Guides – Originally designed for the Norwood Pro, LumberMate 2000, LumberMate LM29 and LumberLite ML26 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. (LumberMate 2000 & LM29; LumberLite ML26: Item No. MILL-BGCRK)
