TIPS AND TRICKS

1. Sharpen the Blades

For safety reasons, your Kindling Splitter ships with a slightly dull blade. We recommend that you sharpen your blade before you use it, and periodically as needed. If the blade is dull, it won't go through the wood as easily as it should.

To sharpen the blade, use a steel or a buffing wheel to sharpen the blades. If you use the steel, just gently run it up and down the blade. With a buffing wheel, rest the blade against the wheel while it turns. If your blade isn't that dull, you only need to use the polishing side of the buffing wheel.

2. Don't Cut Wet Wood

Whether your blades are sharp or dull, you shouldn't use them to cut wet wood. Wood that is newly cut is spongy won’t break easily. We recommend that you only split wood that has been aged for a season or more.

3. Clean the Log Splitter Regularly

Clean your log splitter on a regular basis. Dust and scrub the unit as needed, and dry it afterwards to ensure that it doesn’t rust.
