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 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.
