    reminds me of something my Dad would have done (the crane)
    His modification was a table attached to one side. (fold for transport and storage) After the log splits, half falls on the ground, but half stays on the table. Don't have to pick up that half again...just position and split again.

Her response was (and this was a day before my birthday) "well then, you might need your birthday present" and she went out to the car to get me a set of "log tongs" for lifting logs. I had time last week to build it. Required about 70 bucks worth of steel and a lot of work (including welding). My buddy Jim welded it for me with my welder. I haven't tried it yet but I think it is going to work! I need to get a new welding mask, I could do it and do it well!

    Yes I'm sure, that doesn't mean I'm right.
    Very nice.

    Back when I did offshore survey, we had something similar built for the Edgetech 424, seeing as it weighed over 100 lbs and we were all close to 50 and older, and we were all keen on not having more back problems than we were already destined to have.

    If it works for you then it's right, for you.

    I have a problem, I laid down on the floor in front of the fire and I can't get up. Had some time today, butchered 2 trees, split and stacked one. At this point, I have more wood cut and split than I started the season with.

    Nope, don't do Instagram or Snapchat... But I can take a picture tomorrow, right now, I am too tired to go to the 3rd floor and get my camera. I go upstairs, and I am going to bed! I need my 4 hours of sleep.
