Spent some time this morning splitting some junk wood that blew down last year to use in my shop heater. This is a homemade splitter that splits 99.9% of what you put on it. The shelf makes it so you don't have to pick any chunks back up off the ground. You can see my supervisor sitting in the truck seat.

Where did the expression working like a dog come from?
If you think about it they have people trained pretty good. They don't have a worry in the world.

OK, Our house is on the east side of our land, but you can' get much further west or north in SC than we are.
The 17 Model T earns it's keep around here. The older I get, the more I wish it had electric start.
The battery just provides fire to the coils for hand cranking.

Bought the T in Kansas 10 years ago from Model T Haven. Went to pick it up in February in T shirt. Hit a blizzard on the way home in St. Louis. Rebuilt the engine, transmission and rear axle. Put new spokes and tires and did some body work and painting.I have about 5 grand in it total. People have found out I can work on T's and I have as much work as I want. Almost all parts can be bought new.
This is my second T. I rebuilt my first one in 1968 and made the mistake of selling it. It was my first car. This one has a permanent home and the grand kids love to ride around the place in it.

I see a battery on the floorboard, must have another starter besides the crank.

Nice pics! I like your bud, mine likes to ride shotgun too but he hasn't quite got the pup out of him. I left him to watch the pickup while I was feeding today and he snacked on the steering wheel...ugh.

Nope, the battery just provides power to the wooden coils for spark as I hand crank it. 1917 did not have electric starter. After it cranks, you switch over to magneto.
