Kindling Cracker
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:22:31 PM »


I haven't seen this before. anyone with a lot of kindling to spilt I'd think would work well for.
There's a video here if you like

That is an interesting design.  Do you think cast iron would hold up over a season of splitting kindling?

It works for me.  Just go to Northern Tool and find the item, that is where the link goes.

Deleted.  Tried to link it to Northern Tool and it kept going straight to the vigilink crap, but in the upper right there is another link to skip that stuff and go to Northern Tool.

Looks like it could be handy to have around the back yard fire pit, but it doesn't look 90 dollars worth of handy.

  I'd just want to sharpen it, and it has no motor or engine, so I think I'd rather have another axe or chopping/splitting tool

For the size of wood, it's splitting.   I'd rather use my knife or ax!   I can make kindling faster with either one.

Yea the price is a deal breaker. But I like the Ideal. would be nothing to make one out of scrap laying around. old lawnmower blade and such.
