Wood splitting... you're doing it wrong.

Okay.. that's terrifying. I predict a rather gruesome Fark article related to this in the coming days.

Done in one. Cutting it to small lengths != splitting wood. You want to cut it lengthwise into 2-3" wide pieces so it'll dry out.

Heating with wood, I'd love to have a wood processor of some kind, instead of a regular hydraulic splitter.

are amazing, but impractical for me. :)

What wood is he busting up there? Birch or ash something?

I'd like to see that machine up against our hedge/osage-orange/bois-d'arc or mulberry. Actually, hedge splits (with the grain) with a maul relatively well for how dense it is, but cutting it to lengths dulls your chain in minutes.

I'd also like to see that thing against the worst wood to deal with... stringy, stringy elm. Bonfire is the only good thing to do with it.

Look at about 24 sec in. No farking way am I doing that.

Actually.. take a look again peeps.. he is CUTTING the wood into lengths and splitting it at the same time. there is a seperate blade inside that does the splitting

(crappy splitting mind you... but still splitting)

Notice everyone is splitting straight grain oak, what happens when someone throws in some gum tree?

I once tried avocado. Stringy and near impossible to split and then it burns like shiat. Would not do again.

I have a maul and a couple wedges and do all of mine by hand. I try not to buy firewood that needs to be split for that reason.

thought it was going to be a widowmaker splitter but it was something different, neat...
 
2012-11-07 04:24:12 PM  
it's ok. He's wearing gloves made of cotton dipped in latex
 
2012-11-07 07:18:43 PM  
The weldments on that splitter looked sub-par.

That is all.

Bloodcorn: Wrong.
This.


There's an old guy who uses a tire to do that same thing.

To me, it looks like any splitting was incidental and due to it being crushed or sheered as opposed to any secondary blade.
 
2012-11-07 10:50:23 PM  
nah.. you see the first cpl logs get stuck on the splitter portion

If you look, the other blade is a short almost tooth looking thing wielded to the inside of the rotating part of the barrel, about an inch in, it grinds the piece of woof against the pillar while the rotating drum cuts it. This doesn't look like too bad an idea as a proof of concept, maybe if there was a feeder chute to keep hands farther away.

Jeebus! At the 0:22 sec mark you'd wish a little voice inside his head would say "psst, let it go".
