fire wood spliter : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

I would like to know if there is any free pans out there on the net for making a fire wood log spliter the hydralic kind or any free plans on other farm equipment . I am tired of spliting wood by hand for are home and my dads home to . I love the outdoors but dont want to tie up that much time spliting wood. It was another great day here in indiana cool ,sunny and the fall color is great. Fxed fence today where tornado went through this spring and cut up the huge trees that where on them. I hope to get my greenhouse up before it gets cold that way I will be ready come march to start plants, trees, and shurbs. Black lab. had 8 puppies today. GOD bless and thanks for a great site.

Good thought! HMMM, What picture comes to my mind is a gillotine set up with a weight, a crank mechanism and a very sharp steel blade that is wedge shaped....

Let me know what you come up with.

Jack, in the past I have seen plans for sale in the Northern Hydraulics catalogue, I don't have a currant copy, might still be there.

Northern Tool and Equipment might have something. I'm looking for one for the 3 point hitch (used hopefully). Should be a lot cheaper than a stand alone unit

My husband started a handyman business last year (he is a licensed electrician and does all kinds of other stuff)...anyway...he was working for a man a few weeks ago and knew that we had purchased a new wood-burning heater and GAVE US a nearly new Craftsman 10 ton log splitter! It is wonderful!!! You may can get something like that fairly cheaply if you put the word out....some of these folks with lots of money buy this kind of thing for "toys" and then tire of them easily!
