That is a really nice machine! cool You aught to put a patent on that. I wish my stuff looked that nice but then I'd be afraid of messing it up crazy. Around here necessity spurs motivation which the end result usually gets pressed into service immediately whistle. I'd just get paint on my fingers and fingerprints in the paint blush eek sick.

The way oil prices are going, there might be a market for a nice machine like that. I have two big old logs from a tree that fell over that would be really nice cut up. They are still laying there because the things are so heavy that they are a bear to raise up and block. If wood was your primary heat source or if you had a tree service that had a good supply of logs that would be the deal! Sell the patent to somebody else and let them manufacture them.
But if you are like me, I don't see dollar signs when I do stuff. I just like the challenge of the build and the possibility of making my work a bit easier!

Interesting for sure. I have a couple of hydro motors from an old 0 turn. I was wondering how to fashion a bar and chain to them. I was going to make a shaft that would fit onto the rim sprocket or flywheel and then weld a couple of bolts on for the bar, but , that is all of the figurin I have done this far.

Could sure use that here right now, think you could ship it over. Have two log truck loads to get cut up this year, about 40-50 face cords.
Real nice looking machine.

That would be 13.3-16.6 "REAL" cords.
Greg, I was pleased to find out that us maritimers still use the 4' x 4' x 8' cord here, although the sticker price was a bit of a shock 'til I realized this.
I'd love to know who started the 1/3 cord west of here. Was it the Quebecois (for dubious financial reasons) or the Prairie people (who would need a thousand acres to be able to cut a 128 cubic foot cord)? (just kidding.)
I just spent the better part of the day junking up another oak and then triming and burning the small branches & twigs.
Funny how they look so sparse with no leaves when they're up on the tree and once it's down on the ground it's a horizontal forest.

Ah, so the ubiquitous "face cord" is endemic (or epidemic) south of the border too.
I would just love to know how the "cord" became basterdized.
If someone were to offer a "rick" or "face pound" of butter weighing 5.333 oz. would there not be a "hue and cry"?
The "cord" of fire wood is described as 128 cubic feet and supported by government regulation here in "backward" Nova Scotia. Where did this "one third" aberration originate and why is it accepted.
