Old wood splitting machine, how they used to do it back in the day…

Splitting wood is not amongst the favorite labor tasks to no one, so when men found a way to throw the axe away and use a machine he jumped to the excellence of the idea. This is why today most of the hardware stores will sell you a machine that will aid you in this laboring task. The huge selection of this kind of a machine makes us wander what was like back in the day, what sort of contraption did they use to get rid of the axe?

Well today we found the answer to this in a video made of an old-time wood splitting machine, which looks as safe and efficient as a machine from that age can be.
While some call this a windowmaker, some say that this machine features a fixed stroke that prevents you from losing limbs and sight if you know how to use it and know what not to do.
Well to us it looks pretty safe, but we would rather stick to the newer models, just to find a way to avoid the axe.
Check out the video and tell us, would you be brave enough to use this machine with no protection like the old-timer on the video is?
