Just to add to this old thread... The "Monster Maul" was made by (Leonard) Sotz Mfg. in Columbia Station, Ohio. I think it weighed in at around 18 pounds; if I can dig mine out of the shed I will weigh it sometime. The company is no longer in business. They also made a "ladies maul" (a bit smaller and lighter), a log-lifting device (to hold end of the log off of the ground while sawing) and kits to turn steel drums into woodstoves. The drum kit would permit you to put a tight-fitting loading door and pipe collar onto a steel drum. IIRC, there was a 30 gal. drum version and a 55 gal. drum version. If you really wanted to have a fine stove, you would configure it with two drums - fire in the bottom drum, top drum acted as smoke chamber/heat exchanger.
