Gadgets that make life easier

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Mr Flibble, Jul 10, 2009.

  1. Tools or household gadgets that actually work well and make tasks simpler.

    I'll start with this:

    From splitting large logs down to making kindling, this little beauty just does it all so well.

    logsplitter-ani.

    (BTW, I'm not affiliated in any way, just like the product)

  4. You only have to set it up once.

    It is a LOT easier to use than a block splitter. You actually get the log split where you want it split, not at some random point depending on how good your aim is :)

  5. I've got this brilliant gadget.

    It converts the normal 3 day trip to work down to 1 hr. It's called a motorcycle.

  6. Give me a 9lbs axe anyday, bit of practice and cutting kindling is easy. Knotted redgum on the other hand...

    Best gadget, razor. Itchy face sucks.

  7. This thread had great potential, now everyone is just going to reiterate how much of a pansy you are for not swinging a block splitter like the rest of us.

    PS You are a pansy for not swinging a block splitter like the rest of us.

    This has probably been posted before, but it's the coolest thing ever. Amazing bit of machinery...

    Seeing as though we're talking about log splitting and lumberjacks and what not.

    Cool machine but that would have to be the most boring job ever.
    It's like a factory job in the forest...
