Screw log splitter by Make it Extreme

This is a useful machine for every house that has fireplaces or wooden heaters as it is used for slitting the wood. For instance, when we cut the pieces of wood using a chainsaw, we get too big pieces of wood that they cannot fit in our fireplaces and wooden heaters so we divide these large pieces into smaller ones. Despite the fact, that there are many tools and machines for this purpose, we chose to make a ‘screw log splitter’ for the particular video. The way it works is generally simple and it is not too demanding making it besides some parts that were essential for its good performance as well as making it safe to be used.

In the beginning, we made the frame of our structure using square tubes of 60mm x 60mm x 2mm. Regarding the frame’s dimensions are 80cm width, 106cm length and 62cm height. Then, we put wheels under the frame in order to manage to move our machine easily and save it in a good place.

The wheels are 18cm height so the final height of our machine is 80cm, tall enough to keep the user to the most ergonomic position as much as possible. This is the suitable height to keep the user relaxed and high enough to keep him safe from any injury during its use.
