Ok, I am thinking of making a push through splitter with a fixed wedge. My thoughts are leaning towards a box wedge design but research seems to indicate that knots will start to foul things up. With that in mind, I was thinking of using both so I was surfing the www looking for ideas to keep the round from falling to the ground while using single or multiple wedge, and a lift. One video showed a sliding lift, and other operators managed the split by positioning the round back on the lift, some had several people helping them. This method seems pretty taxing and I thought there must be a better way than manhandling the round. I thought my wing design was the answer, but I would still need to get the partial round into the lift. I am trying to avoid using additional help and the dropping of the round on to the ground from waist height. Any thoughts????
