Default The only way to split fire wood

I saw this today when I lived in the north I split a bunch of fire wood but this looks like a better way. https://www.facebook.com/bellsmachin...3997691964822/

Yeah, those are neat. That one is one of the smaller, and slower ones. Do a search for wood splitting machines, or similar, on youtube. You will be in awe.

My brother lives on 10 acres in the woods near Portland and has a small splitter. Given his and my age and condition, there'll be no manual log splitting for either of us.

Indeed. My little electric-hydraulic 6 1/2 ton splitter does everything I need it to do. Just not fast.

They didn't show the machine you need to load the logs on the infeed of the machine. Overall a pretty hefty investment. I have one of the small electric/hydraulic machines too and since I burn wood for my primary heat source it gets a pretty good workout. Daughter and son in law also use it for their house as they also burn wood primarily so up to about 16 cords a year between us.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Can you imagine if someone owned one of these during colonial times. That person would be the richest man alive.

Actually there was the distance of CT and Va separation that helped That and I was thinking of getting back into law enforcement except I didn't think that was a good idea with a 5 year old son I had sole custody of. Distance is good.......
