    An Interesting search list result...quite a bit of them. A long winding wabbit hole indeed.

    Thanks for the criteria.

    I particularly liked the Summary of the Invention, section 2, line 35-45...well said.

    Not sure which of those I like better. We'd all appreciate less hype with more deliver; but slamming patent office is classic mechanic vs engineer.

    Lest we furgit, Some of the Pro's are the Best Engineers. More commonly known acrimoniously as SoPaBe's in acronymian format, acrostically delivered.

    Dang!
    Just when I'm planning to fab up one of those spinning "cone type splitters", somebody's gotta post up a completely different,
    and equally effective looking one!
    Anybody have any first hand experience building or using one of these?

    Effective mechanically; yes. Effective in practicality; no.
    Right off the bat, this rotating hook depends on the 'anvil' towards back of work surface, which means the ability to handle various lengths is questionable. Even if movable, sorting adds labor to work tending the machine. It would have a range of diameters too, with moisture content.
    Your cone type auger, hands down, is more tolerant of length, which happens during cutting. The main thing is one end should have some degree of squareness so an auger will start.
