Kids and me hung out in the shop this weekend
Log splitter needed a catch table on the side - done deal. Bolts to the factory holes - drilled out to 1/2" though. (they were only 3/8")
But the motor was very exposed to dropped logs.
Problem solved (and added a little bling with some used aluminum)
When the aluminum is unbolted the air filter cover opens for service.
(aluminum mounting flanges are welded underneath)
