    I absolutely love the photos of Murphy and Emma . . . and hopefully they will live a long life despite the diabetes.

    could you post a couple of closeup pic's of your log splitter I have the same one but it looks like you have bigger tables on each side I would like to see how they are mounted and how big they are. Thank you.

    as you know what came with the machine was 'iffie' so i grabbed a length of heavy steel, cut to fit and did a quick retro fit..

    but made the one on the engine side a little longer as when the splits were falling they were landing right on top of it..

    also re-welded the arms as they were pretty cheap. the machine works great but still gonna do a couple more mods on it..
    but basically now just going for different tires.

    engine side 37''x 8''...right side 34''x 8''

    Loon it's great to see Murph back at it, nice looking saw so I guess it's time to get it dirty.

    We had some rain early and after seven tonight. The splitting and stacking starts on Monday then mill on the weekends and maybe Friday if I can get all the work done at the shop so Friday would be a day off.
