    When ever I see a home made splitter it is always interesting how everyone uses the materials at hand to achieve the same results ie a working splitter.

    Thats exactally what I was thinking.

    That pushplate and slide look almost similar to that little metal clip on the gas shock on a screed door to hold it open. If you have it in place and the door propped open, no matter how hard you will try, the rod will bend or the mount will break before they slip
