NO!!! NO!!! NO!!!! Welding "spring-steel" ???? Not sayin you will, but you could get somebody hurt/killed.i am ready to start welding my splitter. i do have a question though. will i have problems if i build my brackets with spring steel. i pulled it from a mack truck spring. they are 1/2 inch thick.
i know they will lose their springiness, but will thy be too weak for the splitter.
If it was me, I would raise the height so the top of the beam was a little bit below waist level. This will make for more comfortable splitting since you are not bent over all the time.got some welding finished on the log splitter. i still have a bit to do. still need to clean the welds up with a hammer and a brush.
