As temperatures in the northern hemisphere drop, this is the time of year when many people begin to process firewood for the coming winter months. For city people, this means cutting a tree into logs, and then cutting these logs into small enough things to put in your wood stove. You can do all this with hand tools, but if you have large enough logs, an electric splitter is a worthwhile investment.
Of course, unless you are like a “self-made workshop”, in this case, you can make a powerful separator from the steel sheets you arbitrarily place around the perfectly equipped workshop. Considering that some parts of the splitter will be exposed to incredible forces, he really spends time on this construction to ensure that everything expands. Coupled with his legendary attention to detail, you will see it in this film for some time. We’re not complaining.
Install the adjustable blade.
A long time ago, it seemed that a fairly simple log splitter was being assembled. The most basic form was a hydraulic cylinder to push the log onto a triangular sheet metal. But then he began to design some special functions, such as a small hydraulic cylinder that can lift the terrible blades of the separator.
There is also a stepped feeder mechanism to prevent users from manually lifting logs onto the machine; Just stop the log between the rungs, let the hydraulic device raise the ramp, and let the log roll to the hungry belly of the machine.
In short, this splitter may be a DIY project, but it is as strong and good as any product in the commercial market. In fact, this may be an improvement, you can find a big box retailer. If you have seen some of his previous works, you won’t be surprised.
