    That thing scares me and I'm fearless. Also, it should have a foot switch...

    One does not find those in the trash. That is why I used a snowblower front gearbox on my last project...

    That's cute if you're splitting little pieces of wood. The rounds I split are 2 to 4 feet in diameter...

    In dumpster behind worm drive reduction gear plant?
    Or working there, like Johnny Cash "One Piece At A Time". I'd post link, but gives away point too quick.

    Wow, I agree, that is dangerous. Try putting a piece in there with a knot and that rotating hatchet is going to get stuck and drag the wood through the opening and maybe your fingers as well. What a horrible design... can I give him a no thanks?
