Damaged Logosol 260 - Help!
« on: June 08, 2015, 12:19:10 AM »
Not sure if this is the correct column to ask for help?

But here it goes!  I made a deal for a nice Logosol 260 a few months ago, this was to make flooring and paneling for my house we are building on the weekends and after work.  I also will plan to run it as a small hobby business for more processing of local lumber (NW Washington State in the San Juan Islands).

My problem is that while in transport, the machine tipped over on to the side and bent all of the jack screws (that elevate the table - determining the thickness of the material to be processed).

I have ordered 4 new jack screws and installed them carefully yesterday...re-installed the chain and it is now very stiff, nearly impossible to raise or lower the bed.

Does anyone have experience with this?  Thanks a bunch...

Have you determined that the table is level and the screws are in time with it? Good luck, bg

I am thinking that is the problem, do you have any hints as to how to do that?  When I took the old screws out, I blocked up the table and put the new screws in hand tight, then connected the chain.  Thanks for any input you have!

When your table is stiff like that you have one or more skipped links as you have already figured out. You want to block off the table and release the chain tension.  A little whiteout will help you keep track of the sprocket/threaded bars alignment. If you PM me your email I can send you a copy of the manual.


Instructions for levelling the machine table:

- Set the both bearing housings of the upper cutter in their
lowest position (see Adjusting the upper horizontal cutter on
p.14).

- Place an absolutely level block on the machine table directly
under the cutter head.

- Turn the cutter so that you can measure against the cutter
head (not against the knives or the knife slots).

- If possible, turn the machine table crank until the block comes
very close to the cutter. If it is impossible to raise the table,
you later have to take the measurement between the table
and the cutter head instead of using the block. This operation
is slightly more difficult.

- Loosen the chain for the machine table by opening the
chain lock (take the opportunity to clean and lubricate the
chain).
Turn each of the threaded bars until the cutter head touches
the block along its entire length (alternatively, measure
between the table and the cutter head). Each threaded bar
has to be turned a little at a time to avoid the table getting
locked due to angular misalignment. Do not use force.

- When you are satisfied with the table adjustment, i.e.
the tables lateral position, also check the tables position
lengthways in the machine by measuring its height against
the upper edge of machine frame, and level the table in this
direction as well.

- Make sure that all the threaded bars are easy to turn. If any
of the threaded bars is difficult to turn, it is due to angular
misalignment of the table. Adjust this by slightly turning
the difficult bar, even if this results in the table being not
completely level. This deviation is taken care of by fine-tuning
the position of the upper cutter (see Adjusting the upper
horizontal cutter).

- Make sure that the table cannot be wobbled diagonally.

- Place the chain on the sprockets and tension the chain using
the chain tensioner on the out-feed side of the machine.


Hope this helps!
