The Woodwiz Splitter is designed to split logs with out the wide range of motion or strength needed for conventional log cutting. The log splitter may be used by persons in a wheelchair, with impaired vision, or back problems. The log splitter permits velocities comparable to that of a swung sledge hammer; eliminates the inertial drag of the guide tube when the hammer impacts, and whose weight is twice that of the splitting tip; absorbs the shock of impact and does not transmit the shock to the person holding the splitter. The features include a guide tube, splitting tip, spring, hammer weight and retaining ring. User places device on log in a vertical position with splitting tip on the surface to be split. The hammer weight is lifted to the top of the guide post and dropped with moderate to maximal force thus splitting the log on impact. The guide tube height may be adjusted with an iron pipe accessory. DIMENSIONS: 54 inch guide tube, for height adjustment 0.5 inch iron pipe.
