Stop spending money on wood chunks

ThatgrimguyThatgrimguy Posts: 4,189


I bought this because I ordered a Santa Maria and was looking for a way to get smaller splits with out chopping off a toe or getting a mechanical item that would need maintenance.

it makes making chips for a Kamado easy too. Never waste money buying chunks again!

    Nice!

    I found this little guy off Craigslist. I've put this thing through its paces. Plugs into the wall. Far from what a full size version can do but I'm surprised at times what this thing can split. I split a little over a cord with it the past few weekends.

    I like the idea of this just for kindling for my firepit.  Sure would save on the cost of fat wood.

    I’ve had my eye on this for the kbq. I had it in my cart and the saw this. I may just get both. https://youtu.be/N1FYqrCVZ9Y

    for those who don’t want to watch a video the “this” I am referring to is a drill bit that splits logs. Looks pretty cool in the video. Anyone ever use one?

    I thought for sure your video was going to be the stickler.

    This looks like a Darwin Award nomination about to happen.  I wouldn’t get anywhere near that contraption.

    That's nuthin'. Wait til you see this guy...

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I really like it. Its going to be great for my santa maria. I get my logs pretty much already ready for my Shirley.   I was really excited when I figured out how easy it was to get chunks or even chips. I still would occasionally buy a bag of fruit a wood but not anymore. I'll save the cost in the first year.

    I have been thinking way too small. Anyone have a ‘92 civic for sale?

    I was looking at a 5 ton splitter.  Harbor freight has one as well
