    jeffs phone63013 168.jpg View attachment 105479 View attachment 105479 I thought I would post some pics of my new toy from TSC. If anybody is looking to get one now is a good time. You can get zero percent same as cash until 2015. Thanks to everyone that gave me feedback on their wood splitters while I was looking!

    Splitters make it fun, don't they! I still like to bust up a cord from time to time with the maul, but it's a nice feeling to know you can throw those nasty azz knots and knurls to the side and kill 'em with the hydraulics, isn't it?

    my FIL just bought one on that sale at TSC. Finally, he'll quit asking to use mine every summer.....:p

    Nice addition to the firewood tool box!

    Just come in from splitting wood, I split little over a cord today. It was in the high 80's with humidity about a gazillion percent and I was still having a blast. There is just something about watching wood crack that is just so fun. LOL

    Hopefully some of this nice weather we are having will make its way down to you. It really feels great after all the humid sticky crappy weather we had. Might be going down to 50 tonight. It will be very welcome.

    That would be nice BS. It has been pretty bad here with servere thunderstorms everyday with down pours. We have been getting a whole lot of rain and really high humidity days. If it doesn't stop soon my garden will be toast. I noticed today that my squash is turning brown

    My favorite part of running the splitter is to put a nasty, knarly round on deck, that has around 20 knots coming out of it, knowing damm well that in a matter of a few minutes and some poppin' and crackin', that nasty round will become splits for the pile.....

    Yeah I had a couple that popped and squealed. It scared the crap out of my wife! LOL. It seems like the more noise they make the more I feel like I accomplished

    One thing I noticed that was odd to me was the primer bulb has a hole in it. I thought it was damaged so I went to tsc today after work to get a new one and it had a hole in it. According to the guy who assemblies them there he says it has a diaphragm behind the primer bulb to keep the gas in and the foreign material out.

    I forget where you are in Jersey, but here's a list of tsc within 100 mi. I used somerset, nj? You can usually get the $999 deal anytime, just ask the manager, explain the distance traveled to purchase

    Heres a few more south.....

    a little wood trivia if u will. can anyone guess the wood i split in the first pictures (piled up beside the splitter). it is all the same type except for a couple pieces on the top, extra credit if u can guess those as well.
    and yes i know for sure what type they are.
