    Wooosah! Nice and quick, but if we take the chaining time into consideration, is it still as quick? We didn't see him recover the chain from under the logs after he opened it. Pretty good axe work though - I bet he's done a few hundred of those logs at least.

    I can see that idea saving me time/making money @ work! I'm stealing it!!!
    Mind you I've seen pics of it done by making a giant elastic band out of a bike inner tube too.

    green woodworkers do a similar thing to smplit a log into blanks for making rake tines and other pegs. It's a bit smaller scale but a foes is used rather than an axe and a rubber band (inner tube ) or string is used to tie the bundle together.

    I have to say though that I might well try that with a log myself. good idea, dunno why I've never seen it done before
