Actually I thought it was pretty safe, and well made.
The weight of the head is what drives this puppy.
He counterbalances it with a spring and still must use his own weight to
drive it, but very controlled.
That did occur to me too, but it would be a blessing if your back was bad,
or rotator cuff or something. It looks like it takes very little effort to
pull down on the arm.
Two thoughts. If there was an "X" ax head, you could do a 4 way split just
Also, the fulcrum is too high. It should be the same height as the top of
the log to be split. As it is, the maul is moving sideways as it goes
through the wood.
I did notice that. He seems to be checking the hit location first,
then pulling it into place. People here probably use a similar
technique using a miter saw. I always check to see where the blade
will hit and where my hand is before I hit the switch. So far, I can
still count to ten.
