I can't raise these thread from the archives. Someone posted a link to an outfit that had plans for building your own splitter along with many other useful items. Could you please post it again? Thanks!

About 20 years ago a buddy and I built one, about 5 years later I bought out his share. It's been used countless hours. I don't see why you need "plans" especially if you have your 24" cylinder etc. before you start. Then you can see how long your I beam needs to be and you can mount the pump and reservoir on the axle. I suggest you have the wedge moving against a stationary plate rather than vice versa or you have to drag big pieces back all the time. And it helps to have good sized plates at the sides so the split pieces (that need more splitting )don't drop to the ground. BTW, your welds will be tested.

Thanks for the help. I talked with a welder last night and he thinks it will be a good project next spring. Going to start looking for a pump and cylinder next.
