Block splitter is done!


I think it looks mighty fine for something cobbled together in a day. It
works great! What do you think?

I have done two jobs with those kind of blocks you describe. Unless you got what you have for free or close to that one usually purchases the necessary half blocks with the initial order. I don't recall all that well perhaps there is a whole block with a double middle you cut or crack. The other end on my applications just ended up kind of like a stair way. Probably more rain around here, fill the voids with pea stone, tie back into the bank by putting a hammer drill hole and steel rod going back into the bank as needed. Cap the top with a thin layer of small aggregate concrete. Pea stone and drainage perforated pipe at bottom in the bigger job.
Those blocks weren't cheap, the smaller job where I bought them I got a discontinued color/texture and I bet a pick up loaded would have been about $500. Personally I think you should think about water on the diamond blade.

Hey, if it works, it's a block splitter. If not, I can always use it for a log splitter.

I think the pink felt is a bit much. Anyone else feel that way?

That was done on day two.
Nah, I'm off the block splitter now, and on to recovering my pool table. I did split a block today while splitting some wood. BTW, it splits wood excellently, too. The block was a little off, so will add some shims and score one or two sides and see if it works any cleaner. The cleave I did was a little better than I expected.
By the way, it's BURGUNDY, not pink. My SWMBO'S choice. Next color is pool table green.

Perhaps you could have left the block splitter up for more than an hour, huh?
I figured it had something to do with a woman. Heh heh heh.

there used to be a chain of pool halls in phoenix where all the tables were covered in bright florescent pink felt. kinda hard to play on because of the glare.
called, you guessed it, pinky's.
