andrew: This is as safe as a band saw. You are correct. Just remember your ABC's Always Be Careful. The fastest quietest out there. Good idea.
Danny DeCosa: I like the symbal crash every time it hits!
Walker Smith: Thoose rims...damn! :D
Ed Yehle: why do you burn pine, more heat from oak
Cerberus: I got to your video very late, but this is awesome, and would work the hell out of two guys just trying to keep up !!
Daves Faves: Well done Kevin! That is a fantastic bit of machinery you've made. There's another video of a wheel splitter on Youtube that is frightening to watch. Yours looks safe, with good operating distance between hands and maul. I'm very impressed with it, and would love to see more videos of it in action, especially hooked to a solar panel!
connor barr: Kevin could you possibly supply a pic or drawing of the wedge design your using it seems really efficient
Nightfire0409: I would like to see this machine split some Australian hardwood !
riphaven: Like a boss
Ian Manley: SICK!!!!!!!!!!
lt1jon: that's bad ass
Jay Phillips: Always like watching how a small amount of power added to mass/weight and some inertia can produce so much work. I'm betting that small electric doesn't eat a half dollar's worth of juice every day. Couldn't split by hand and eat for that!
Tim Henry: pine? Lol.
Wesley Jackson: nice build, I have only one suggestion for you and you may of already incorporated it, I'm not sure as the video ended before I could tell, but anyways, my suggestion: add hinges to the off-cut tables to lift/throw the work to earth instead of picking each one up and stacking of course, if you don't have a pile and stack all cut pieces then disregard. again, nice build..very clean. take care
Cascapediastjules: Like to see him tackle a piece of stringy yellow birch with that
strapped9: thank goodness youve used a heavy flywheel and split logs lying down. i think youll keep all your fingers. i have seen light flywheel splitters that need speed to split and they place the log vertically.
