Things are going along here in NH. Ran into some of those typical slowdowns.  Had a couple adjuster bolts that tension the infeed belt break.  Of course it happens on a Sunday when we were getting ready to rip 3 cord out!  Some custom tapping, a bit of grinding and the magic welding machine fixed that up.

The next slowdown has been logs.  A few guys around here have either cut back, or parked there stuff. On road is running around $6.31 a gallon at my last fill on the fuel jug. I don't fill my slip tank, it makes me sad when I do that, I stick to 5gal at a time now :-\.  I was pretty good about stocking up on logs this winter and spring, but I only have so much room in my dooryard.  I had about 25-30 cord of orders and only 15ish cord of logs kicking around.  One of the areas long-standing families got me a 10 cord load on Sat, so.it took some stress off, and now I can keep going at 3-5 cord a week without stressing for a bit!

I've got 2 cord done and delivered so far this weekend, hope to get another 2 done Sun and reload the log deck.  That'll also let me cross 2 customers off my to do.list, I like that!  

We're gonna try and a do a nice atv ride tomorrow too. All work and no play, makes Matt a complete and total pain in the... well, that's what my wife tells me ;D

Here's a muffler mod I did on our 1x37Easy. When the wind blows from the south (50% of the time) it's no fun  having the exhaust blown in the face, so I come up with this.

Also made a 5 way splitter axe for the 1x37 out of some QT100. It allows the ability of smaller pieces to just be pushed through and stay round.

Here is the initial test run of that splitter axe design.

Jim, I like your muffler mode, but no flapper? I want everything to have a.flapper on top...which is weird cause nothing I own has a.flapper, I just want it to!

How do you like the Subaru 25hp engine? Do they still make them?  It's got to be better than the Pred I've got.

Let me know how the 5 way holds up. With the limited diameter these machines will eat, that may be super handy.  I've got a 6 way and hardly ever use it. The machine needs just a bit more power to run it, and the wings on it aren't long enough to make good splits.

Time to make big pieces of wood into little pieces of wood!

I've often thought of making a "T" or "Y" shaped one for a 3 way split for my splitter, I figure that it would do the 2 way splits and the 3 way then I would only have to recycle the top piece for 4 way but I bought a different splitter that has a tray that moves back and forth with the pusher to return your split pieces with a much taller wedge and it is much easier to re-split that it is not worth the trouble to make.

Granite your flapper comment made me laugh. Was recently replacing a muffler on a tractor had my 10 yo son helping me. I asked him what do you think do the old bologna cut on top so it comes out the side or straight up with a flapper?
Without a second of hesitation “flapper, gotta have a flapper the little tink tink tink noise is just COOL!!”
Needless to say it’s got a flapper

Thought of the flapper, but it was easier to put two holes in the bottom section of the flex pipe for drainage.

The 5 way is holding up. But on some large green maple it will stall. However, I have the ram set to max speed (meaning lowest force). So maybe if I slowed the ram some, it might not stall.

Between Fri and Sun I got 1 cord of pine, and 4 cord of hardwood worked up and delivered.  Man, I was wore out, looked forward to getting back to work so I could rest!  Lot's of maintenance this week and reloading my log brow. Really hoping for a helper or two next weekend, it sure is nice to share the load

I hear ya on that. We did 2 cord Sunday, 2 cord Friday and 2 cord Thursday. Gotta do a little over 50 more by September. Dunno if its gonna be possible, we swore we'd not do firewood in July and August this year like we did last year. Yet, here we are in the same predicament.

I like that no wood in July and August plan...but my math shows me booked out til late July. I do have a nice tent to put up over the processor when it gets hot. In the summer, we don't take atv rides after our Sunday wood processing, we switch up to taking a dip in the lake.

I say the same thing every year no firewood in July and August. But it seems like that's when we have time. Spring comes and we are planting. Then into spraying season. July and August my two helpers and myself have time but boy the heat. This year in late May planting was done, it was dry and I had logs ready so we worked six or seven cord and got it loaded in trailers. We did have a light winter here so I don't have as much to do. We will still be doing some in July and August but not as much as we normally would. Fall around here is busy with grain harvest and field work and dirt work then it usually gets wet and then comes the snow and cold. My wood is out in pastures so I don't want to tear the grass up so we don't do firewood in the winter.

Spring would be the ideal firewood season for me, but this spring was rain, rain, rain. So now I'm trying to make bundles around 90° heat. Mornings and evenings or even in the dark if necessary.
Too many irons in the fire

Fall, winter and spring for me. Rain, snow, wind...perfect weather so far as I am concerned. Even a warm day (20-25ºC) with clouds and a breeze, that's manageable. But straight up sunshine, yeah, no. I'll be inside thank you very much.
