It's been about a year since the last repair
to the Chopper 1 axe and it's holding up very well....so well that
I plan on doing the same glue job on the other side.
Now when the spring fails it
won't let the thingamajig that holds it in place fall out and get lost
in the mud.
The main advantage the
Chopper 1 has over the SuperSplitter is what I call the bounce. When
you don't apply enough power the Chopper 1 tends to just bounce off
while at the same time splitting the piece a little. The SuperSplitter
would often get stuck when I misjudged the power needed and lodge in
the log with a stubborn vengeance. Sometimes I would spend more energy
getting the SuperSplitter dislodged than actually splitting wood.
