    Am I the only one that uses a bandsaw to make kindling out of big splits?

    tomatoguy,
    Today I stopped by the place where I normally pick up pallets, and saw one with a stamp on it. See the photo - how does yours differ from this? (I assume the letters mean something). Judging by it's weight, I don't think this one is hardwood, but I could be wrong.

    I was at Groosmans Bargin outlet today they sell the 6 tone Iron Horse splitter 15% off their regular price $245 they had 7 monday onlu one today Last year they sold 4 the entire chain of stores have sold 75 this year 11 last year. I guess my review sold a few extra splitters. As good as the ryobi is imagine 50% more power and $50 less.

    I should get a commission check from ryobi and grossmans

    Amazing what 4 tons can do? Pretty fast Ah!

    We could have a get together with all the various models and see which one rules. I suspect the 6 ton number is high! :) Now we just need a gauge of some sort to read the pressure exerted!

    Nope , nothing from stated brands , i had to settle for the DeWalt Heavy-Duty 12" Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw - DW718

    http://www.dewalt.com/us/products/tool_detail.asp?productID=9793

    Works great for what little wood working i do but didnt want to end up buying a new one a few years down the road.

    For metal work I do recommend the the Dewalt 14" Chop Saw - DW871
    http://www.dewalt.com/us/products/tool_detail.asp?productID=160

    And better yet the 14" Multi-Cutter Saw - DW872
    http://www.dewalt.com/us/products/tool_detail.asp?productID=159

    I own both and are very good tools and get a lot of use and i haven't had one bit of trouble with either saw.

    Precaud-

    The last few I picked up all have the same stamp- Nothing like yours-

    These say

    9315-095
    100% Hardwood


    That's all they say.

    Btw, Checked all the ads in the inserts for digital cameras.. This forum is an expensive place to hang out..

    This is going to be hilarious if I can pull it off--

    Hi Boss,
    Can I use you scanner?
    Sure Bob.

    OK, thanks for checking. I'll keep an eye out for that.

    For internet use, you don't need lots of megapixels. I have several digicams, from 1mp to 5mp, the one that gets used the most is a Canon A60 (2mp). You can pick up used ones for $50 or so on eBay.
