Automatic wood splitter. No more pulling valves like a sucker.

Things happen just by action. Sometimes too right. A million monkeys typing on a million typewriters made the world's first automagic choo-ching log splitter. The only thing missing from this abortion is a coat hanger.

Okay, sometimes you leave the dewclaw alone, miraculous that you got that out of the mine in your lunch pail. So what we got here is uh beginnings of a wood splitter. This reminds me of my wife, but could you go a little bit faster? Tell there was another chicken here leaving little messes everywhere, but in this case ruined log splitting for me forever. He happened to mention it's always the outliers.

You know you like to have fellows with funny ideas around because they have funny ideas. You know if i wanted to talk to myself. I'd talk to myself. It's better to have somebody with a differing sense of opinions, says he to me.

You ever notice these youtube types with more money than brains. What are you driving at duklah? There's? Always some mouth breather mouth a gape running the wall, i put the log in. I pull the valve. Why can't you automate something like that? This is the prototype for the cockford ollie logjammer model xot69 the x dot designation is for prototype, fail fast and fail hard.

I got some 8018 welding rod, we're just gon na ticky tack, tack, all this together and then lay some beads. I don't want to look like an in front of my internet friends, our house. If you stick it, you got ta lick. It oh come on.

That was close. You can take a mental image snapshot of the weld puddle and it's the same consistently throughout the weld from one second to the next. You will generally have a beautiful weld. What's my excuse, you ask: well you never talk about the time you did.

The fully inverted 360 mcflippy with the flippy bit you only ever talk about the time you fumbled your phone and fell off the curb and got hit by a bus and was in traction for two years. I'd love to see your buddies suffer just in solidarity. Human am i right well that does not sound good if it sounds like bacon, it's good. If it smells like bacon you're on fire, you can buy the t-shirts here at the merch shop.

Ah, that last part, it didn't sound good and it sure doesn't look good if you rewind the tape where the weld was sounding the best and just nice and smooth that's where the best weld is not to worry that'll buff right out, hmm. So so what? What? No plc, no programmable logic, controller, no ladder, logic, programming, giving you eye cancer, nay, two simple relays: flip-flopping. In order to get this thing to chooch to and fro oversight, no bluetooth connectivity, no licensing fees, no just two relays. Lo and behold you can tell - and i like chicken was working here on account of the shmoo left everywhere, open valves.

I i realize kettle kettle black black, but it's my shop, my shop 12 volts from the battery 10 amp fuse to the e-stop. You hit the e-stop plunger that opens up these contacts, no power, here's the reset and enable switch you close this it gives power stops at ls1. Ls1 is the limit switch end of travel limit switch with the little roller r1? Is the contacts of this relay coil and then it goes to s2 s2? Is the direction extend and retract that hydraulic cylinder? So if we energize that and say we want to extend it, we flip the switch over to extend power goes to the coil of the solenoid. That opens up the hydraulic port and extends the cylinder.

You'll note there's a diode here so that we do not back feed into the relay to change the contacts and latch it. We don't want it to latch in position when we're doing it manually. We want to be able to jog it. So if we have a hang but dang or a big bloody chungus that won't split or whatever we can get in there safely without the jesus thing, turning us to hamburger meat now in its normal operation, once it actuates one of these end of travel switches, it Will latch so let's have a look at this, so if it reaches the ls1 end of travel limit switch, it will close this guy actuate, the relay which closes this guy actuates, the solenoid through the diode, which causes it to extend until we reach the end of Travel limit switch number two, which opens up both of these limit switches, those little roller ones.

They have two sets of contacts normally open and normally closed. That allows us to cross connect them so that we get a flip flop to and fro in and out automatic electro hydraulic sexy time. Well, that's the problem with the getting spot. You never know what kind of stroking you're actually gon na get so ah short, stroke got me again that is not gon na work, 13 and a half inches.

That's exactly right in the words of that vedic philosopher, sadguru, karma's, a beautiful. What i was going for is that european style of wood, the jenga jenga blocks, looks real pretty you can't laugh at your buddy. I mean there's nothing. The whole reason you have friends is so you can laugh at them when they fail.

You're welcome friend, keep your dick in advice. Ah get my silhouette out of the picture again. Is that? Okay? Please you don't like it. You don't like my stylish fedora there's only one man who ever made the store.

Look cool right. It wasn't me.

    After much gnashing of teeth, he did cleave it twain and he saw that it was good an it was so….

    That splitter in action is eerily similar to those coin pusher arcade games.
    And I like the idea of rectangular profile stove wood for stacking. I had never seen it split other than pie slice profile.

    Gotta love good old fashioned relay logic. Simple, Robust, and makes ya look a fuggin genius to build something from scratch that works with no touch screen or human input. One question, the delay at end of stroke, is that time delay built into the relays or is that more from just the valves themselves being a little slow? And if valves, is that a pretty reliable/consistent actuation delay?

    You’ll be happy to know I learned sumthin. I NEVER thought of using a nut-fucker to flip an apparatus before. I’ll lock that one away for the future!
    P.S. I do have a big Crescent in my carpenter’s bag for un-twisting studs.

    I think that calls for 2 of just about every sticker in the book. Maybe 3 of the "Don't stick your fingie where you don't stick your dinkie"
    I really need some of those around the shop. HR might not like them, but that's ok, we have a weekly meeting anyways.

    I imagine by this point you can use the osha letters pile as a draft excluder for the grand canyon.

    Simple & Dangerous, you say Uncle Bumblefuck? That's just how I like my wo– wait, no, it's not!

    Yep, built one on same concept. Got the limit switches fresh off genie boom lift. Sold her in a yard sale several years ago.

    Sure beats ol grandad's diy model. I'll be sure to place my order once this here type 36 St. Paul hydraulic hoist finally chooches her last🥴

    A clearing block might help in that short stroke. It could even be slotted to accommodate the "teeth" on your splitter. The dad of a friend of mine made something like that for his splitter (sometimes the split wood was too big and didn't break off). His was just a very tight "V" shape with a flat piece across the ram side. It worked amazingly well. Last I saw him he was working on adapting one of those capacitive table saw safety shutoffs that would turn off the ram if your skin came into contact with the cutter end of the splitter. Don't know if he ever got it to work.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Not Sure says:

    A company called Rainier Hydraulics built an automated processor similar. They were called "The Chomper" because they sheared the log instead of cutting. Many still running

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Watson says:

    Curious what happens with the hydraulic solenoid valve when both SOL1 and SOL2 are both energized. Could happen in your wiring arrangement if the relay/switch/flip-flop circuitry is energizing one and you use S2 to energize the other. Could fix the issue with some normally closed switch contacts on S2 wired in the appropriate place in the circuit, that way S2 takes priority over the flip-flop action.

    If you put a piece of cottonwood in there, you could turn the hydraulic cylinder into a balloon animal.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Balliet says:

    so he built an abomination that takes 20 years of natures finest work and turns it into toothpicks… wonderfull

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Down the shed says:

    This channel has gone down hill.. the welds are looking nice, things being picked up with a pallet fork truck. Where’s the dragging milling machine off trailers with a come-a-long and trying to melt titanium with a carbon gouge?

    Also it’s missing a don’t put your fingers where you won’t put your dingus.

    Keep up the good work 👍
