This style unit is generally designed to allow the tapered end of the splitter to be locked from extending by setting a screw on the shaft. Well built units also include a rubber handle for comfortable use, and stops that keep the tapered wedge end rod from coming out of the splitters sliding hammer shaft.
This manual type slide hammer device for splitting wood is comprised of an outer, elongated sleeve that internally receives a rigid wedge control rod. The sleeve may be equipped with handles for easier grip by a user or just a rubber handle cover to grip and hold on to when operating.
To operate, it is first manually lifted upwardly and then forcibly drawn downward. An internal weight added to the top of the sleeve offers additional force in the downward motion that slams into the shaft rod when the sleeve is hammered downward.
While many of these units have a fixed splitter head, sometimes, alternate cutting heads including wedges, root cutters, or an asphalt hammer are able to be attached and replaced as needed for different projects. Typically, a selected tool is coupled to the shaft through a quick release collar system. Smooth operation is insured by guides placed between the shaft rod and the sleeve hammer, while a venting orifice facilitates periodic oiling.
How to Build a Hand Held Sliding Hammer Wood Splitter
Technically, it's cheaper to buy a slide hammer wood splitter than to build one.
While this type of splitter can be safer than swinging an axe, It is also easier to use based on the fact that you just let gravity and the weight of the slide hammer do most of the work for you.
The sliding-hammer manual splitter uses a splitting wedge
attached to a solid steel rod with a sliding hammer action
sleeve that drives the wedge down through the wood to split it.
