In the well-known encyclopedia even the last century “Industry and technology” in volume on “the treatment of fibrous substances”, which is a tree, it is said that “in the works for the division of the tree matters … splitting”. And further: “wedge-shaped tool extends the shared part of the tree; here the cleavage of the tree at a distance greater than the tool can penetrate”.
Has an extraordinary number of types of axes. But to crack the most suitable mallet. It is not only in its greater weight, longer handle for a swing. Important – in the sharper the blade, sharpening. Scientists have found that the optimal value of its sharpening 40° -60°. In this case, the working side surface of the blade, helping to divide the block directed tensile forces in different directions, rasleela…..
The principle of operation of a mechanical cleaver is no different from the “manual splitting”. But here, the blade must fit the block exactly parallel to its longitudinal fibers, or the axe just stuck there in the tree. It is therefore necessary to provide a solid, first of all, the frame of the mechanism by which the movement of its main parts.
And because the quality of the bed stationary rail of the log splitter picked a relatively strong I-beam № 18U sizes 90x90x10 mm. on one side is the knife-the cleaver – pusher acting on the power cylinder with the pump and motor. I would like, moreover, that the mechanism can be moved from place to place. To do this, it needs to have wheels on the front and rear uprights.
