Growing up in a wood burning family, and having depended on wood stoves for heat and cooking myself as an adult, I’m always on the lookout for something to make the task of splitting wood safer, and easier. Some of you may remember a few years back when my glove got caught on a piece of wood, and pulled my hand into the gasoline driven hydraulic splitter. I still can’t use that finger.
When I came across this home built special, it intrigued me. The machine does most of the work, but the operator is in total control, with no fuel, no noise (except the wood cracking), and pretty low budget, both on funds, and labor. Enjoy!
