I was wondering if anyone could give me a few tips on building a log splitter.
I already have a brand new 5hp Honda engine (from a pressure washer I ruined the pump on by leaving hard water in it!).
I would like to know what would be a proper pump size and ram size (diam/length) for my 5hp honda engine.
I looked up Northern tools web site but i'm either too stupid to find the "how to build a log splitter" book, or they don't have it anymore...(probably the first option!)
Anyway, if anyone could give me some advice on what type/size of parts to use, I would be almost as happy as when I watch my "girls gone wild" video!
BTW, I am only going to be using this to split wood for myself and the local wood supply is crap, ..(basically, only pine, fir and aspen!), so I really don't have to worry about hard woods; however, some lucky scroungers may find an occasional oak tree or two so who knows!
Thanks in advance for any tips.
