"Screw Press" Log Splitter
It's safe to use, quiet, and there's no motor so there's no fumes, says David Wolfe, Oceanside, Calif., about his new hand-powered "screw press" log splitter.
  Two models are available, both equipped with a large diameter metal wheel that drives the splitting wedge. It works like a drill press, driving a 2-in. dia. screw that pushes the wedge downward.
  Model RW-07 is designed to split from the top. Model CW-13 splits either from the top or side, and can be used with a wrap-around chain.  
  "It's built heavy and can split logs up to 2 ft. in diameter," says Wolfe. "I came up with the idea because we moved from a farm to an area with a lot of homes and neighbors, so I had to come up with a way to split wood without making a lot of noise. There are no fuels, fumes, or wires; no hot mufflers or fast moving parts. It's a safe, quiet, clean log splitter."
  The RW-07 log splitter sells for $299.99 plus $100 S&H; model CW-13 sells for $349.99 plus $100 S&H.
