Knee Saver – Kindling Breaker

Here’s a simple solution I came up with to help break those larger sticks without using the front of your knee to do the job. Using your body as a tool like this is only going to cost you in the future. I mounted this device on the side of my wood store, close to my kindling store.

All you need is:

1 x Farm Gate saddle approx’ 75mm

2 x 8mm diameter bolts with nuts and washers

A drill to make 2 holes

A spanner

A solid surface to bolt your saddle to

As you can see in my pictures the method is pretty self explanatory.  I’d recommend eye protection when ever sticks are being broken.

  1. Great idea Kade !! I break mine on the ‘tie down’ bar under the tray of the ute.’Been breaking lots as the night temp is down to -3 down here @ Capertee. (Not as low as up on the N.E Tablelands :))

    • Hi Rosie – we had -6 two nights ago. I had ice in my washing machine as I’d left stuff in there to soak. 🙂
