The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Supersplitter setback

Lucy superspliterThe Gorilla glue bond was not quite strong enough to hold up against the heavy pounding a few weeks of wood splitting will tend to put it through. The wiggle is back, and parts of the bond are breaking away from the handle.

The maul has not flown off the handle yet, and as long as it gets the job done we will most likely continue to put it through the many paces of log splitage.

Lucy is often on hand for wood chopping, waiting for just the right piece to snatch up and carry off for safe keeping. We can never seem to get that kind of enthusiasm out of Huckleberry.

I'll definitely pass that on to Mark. Sounds like we should try that epoxy instead once the handle works its way loose again! Thanks for the feedback. :-)
