Limberjack:  Awesome fabrication work.  I built one as well.  Clearly you have attention to the details and a high level of skills in both the build and the finish!

Two things that may or may not be an issue:

1. I would question how far out you have the axles mounted unsupported.  I would want to make sure they can support the load you have on them.  (I see I already mentioned that a while back- consistent at least!)
2. I had roller bearings on my log clamp and had them fail on me - I ended up going to greaseable bushings.  

I would love to see your machine running.  Thanks for posting.

Definitely sweet. I was going to post about the axles sticking out that far also. Way to much potential to bend the tubes. If you add a jack right at the axle to take the load off it would be much better.

It looks like the splitter is caged in ?  If so I hope you have all nice wood to split like some areas do.

Any videos of this thing in operation?
Looks like a cool build.

What kind of mechanism do you have for feeding logs down the trough?
