I'm also trying to figure out how to make a self centering trough and push block on it as well. Would like it to self center down to a four inch log using a H beam. Very  much like how a processor is for hands free splitting.

Well on that a good many of the commercially built splitters use a guide which is merely a rolled section of the I beam which guides the push block or wedge whatever the case .It centers the round .That could easily be duplicated with heavy angle iron .Why a person would be concerned about splitting a 4 inch piece remains a puzzle though .

So is that load mill stock or firewood fodder ?

I'm totally ignorant of what gets cut for lumber in areas which are not hardwood .Seldom at  the few mills left around here would you see anything much smaller than 2 feet in diameter for lumber logs .

Jim, what is the camper that is just barely in your picture? No reason, just being nosy.

Well that's another thing ,a log truck full of firewood in the rough so to speak .You just never see that around here .

If you see a trailer full of logs it's sawmill stock or heading to a local veneer yard for sale in log form .

r.man,
  The camper trailer is a 19 ft. Big Foot trailer made actually just down the road from where I live. They are very popular well built trailers which hold their value very well (all fiberglass) no leaks. They also make truck campers which sell very well.
