LT-15 owners
« on: May 16, 2006, 10:42:36 AM »
I just bought a 4 yr old LT-15. The log dog's seem to push away from the log more times then they push the log tight to the stop. I talked to woodmizer and they said they have an improved verision for $60 ea is this the way to go or are there other option that would be better ?

When I had my LT I had one of the new ones.  My advice is to sell the old ones and get the new ones as fast as you possibly can.  I really liked them.

Trax, I have the same problem.  I made this one and like it a lot but I'd like to take a look at the new WM dogs.

Hi,
I have an LT15 that has one old style dog and two new style dogs.  For me I like the old style much better than the new.  I am not sure if it is my imagination but it seems I can cut the last board to 4/4 without hitting the dog with the old style easier than with the new style. ::)

Try tightening the bolt on the underside of the dog.  Tighten it so it still slides on the rail, but with a little more effort.  Also work on your technique.  I always hold the dog in to the log with one hand or the back of my leg while I clamp it with the other hand.

That's what I do as well, put my left leg against the clamp to hold it then tighten it.
You get a feel for it.

Here is an exploded view of the new clamp. I hope this helps.   Thanks

Thanks for all the replies I will try to tighten up the bolt and work on my technique before I go for the new style dog.
Thanks again

Trax,

I have a 2004 LT15 with newer style log dogs.  They work very well for me.  Like Max said, I have to be careful when sawing the last board to make sure the dogs are as low as possible.  Otherwise, I "loose the set" on the outside of the blade .   :D
