Svend and David
A picture of David and Svend in his gallery. David has reminded me that Svend did have an hydraulic wood-splitter and I wonder why I did not take a photograph of it. I am still interested in wood-splitters even though I no longer have need of one. The one we had was a spiral cone driven by the power take-off of the tractor. It was hard work and highly dangerous. I had two accidents and gave the thing away as scrap rather than risk a third accident. We do not have thatched houses in New Zealand so these lovely ones like Svends are fascinating to me.
