    Jutt - yes a welder was instrumental in building this splitter. As a matter of fact, I had use of a pretty good size mig that a buddy was hiding from his wife at the time. I just used that to tack things together, but the deep cooking came from my very old tomb stone welder (lincoln). No problem with weld penetration with that thing.

    Don - I have thought of the box wedge for my beast - it has the tonnage to make it happen, but I split quite a bit of tricky wood. I'm not convinced that the box for my application is the best (at least yet).

    Sorry it too so long to respond to the Q's - I wasn't getting email notifications of new posts. Gonna have to take away 10 internets from Craig. :zip:

    Mass firewood production seems to come from 12 to 16 inch diameter straight logs. I don't see too many of them. A 6 way slipover seems like a much more practical next step.

    Yep, and currently the large majority of what I have waiting to be split is big stuff.
