Nice job on the fix,simple and effective. I've never seen a 4 way splitter before but it looks like it will work very good.

Thanks for the pics !! Looks like that can work for me. I already have a spare ports on the valve I replaced last year with the intention of doing it.

What size is the square tubing ? I have a bunch of 1 x 1" in my metal pile.

I just need to find a cylinder that will work.

Tubing is 1" square. That's what I had so that is what I used. Almost any cylinder would work. All you would need is a 6" to 10" throw.

If anyone else has a log lift on their splitter, please post a pic or two of it. The wheels are turning with ideas for mine, the more ideas the better. As long as the OCD don't kick in, rite Scott ?

Ken,

you would be like a kid in a candy store if you were up here, trees and poles everywhere you look.

Our town owned electric dept. hopes to have all the '13 blizzard damaged repaired by July, so plenty of electrical work, and during your off time there are so many trees down you can't count them all. Just from my driveway out to main road (½ mile) I bet I could get 10 cords that are laying along the road.

And I'm like the Maytag Repairman here. But it's nice to catch up on and do things that I've been putting off for way to long.

"The wife thinks I've been possessed !!"

 

If you'd stop spinning your head all the way around every time you see a speck of rust....:D  It IS nice to catch up!  I'm making progress in the garage/shop finally.  (FWIW, don't feel bad, my wife has summoned the exorsist here several times in past years!):D

And it hasn't done a lick of good yet. No wonder you got a new TLB, she's going to trick you into digging a hole and getting into it, then she'll bury you up to your neck. Then she'll bring in the whole returning College of Cardinals, fresh back from Rome, to sort you out.

 

 

And you thought she was being nice.............. :angel:

That picture gives me the creeps, our catbox is 36"X20", exactly why I lock the door when I'm cleaning it out...!:D

I did a search in google photos. Looking at different types of log lifts. And found this beauty !! It appears to be owned or made by one of our members with many many talents. JDCrawler. <br><br><br>
I wish I had 1/4 of his fabrication skills.

EDIT: My bad, it was not built by Jdcrawler. It was labeled Jdcrawler I assume because it was posted on a Jdcrawler site. Not sure, but Ray said he did not build it.

The missing board was the only damage I had from hurricane Sandy.

I bought that play house thing at BJs 10 years ago. It's on it's way to the fire pit in the near future. Kids are done with it pretty much. Sydney my 10 Y/O uses once in a while, but she prefers the rope swing in a tree that was there when I bought the house.

I'll finish it up in the am. Got dark and I got hungry. <br /><br />Splitter will get a well deserved break for a week or two. Other stuff has priority now. But I've still got 3 plus cords of Hickory and white oak. Then another 2-3 cords of Cherry to do, which is still on my big trailer. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364872742.527850.jpg <br /><br />
