Some of you may remember my friend, MT.  Just renovated a house for him to put on the market.  Did some bartering for some of his stuff including this wood splitter he made a couple years ago.  

 

Very effective.  Just get the bit balanced by means of the hydraylic jack with round wheel added for ease of operation.  Car spring assists lifting the arm.  Once the base is at the proper height for your logs, set 'em upright, and wham!  Never misses.  Always comes down predictably.

 

We got the idea from a YouTube video and MT took it from there.  All free stuff.

 

I mounted it with 4 anchor bolts 12 inches into concrete.  Seems fine after a few trial runs.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again..

Goes with my hand-crank red tractor.  Just needs a coat of red paint.  And, one redneck operator.  I'll tell you one thing:  That thing is heavy!  Glad it comes apart.

Not my favorite sport either, Kiyote.  Freezing isn't, as well.
