What could possibly go wrong? Wood-cutting and splitting machines which are OSHA’s worst nightmare

Corkscrew of Death

We have brought you the centrifugal log-splitter from Hell in a previous post, but here is a collection of fails with this diabolical machine.

Of course there are other ways to process wood that are equally insane. Like this delightful v-8 powered corkscrew:

People can be morons when cutting wood as well. Like these guys…

The log-handler isn’t even wearing safety glasses. 🙂

Stay safe everyone. Always maker sure you check your “blood circle” when splitting wood by hand. And definitely don’t be like these guys.

    At least the screw splitter works relatively safely.
    Speaking of axes and the like, just saw this at UrgentAgenda.com:
    “SPORTS NEWS – FROM AFP: Eatontown (United States) (AFP) – What better, safer way to have fun than drink beer and throw a hatchet? This is now a thing in America, a new pastime, and it’s spreading. On a busy Friday night at Stumpy’s Hatchet House in New Jersey, it sounds like this: the thud of the blade sticking into a wooden target, people cheering a good toss, and a bell ringing out when somebody scores a bull’s eye. Its four founders say this place, which opened 18 months ago, is the first of its kind in the US, although Canada is generally considered the cradle of competitive hatchet-hurling. Such spots are now found in Chicago, Washington, Nashville and Denver, among other US cities. Stumpy’s owners are talking about opening another elsewhere in New Jersey and have even started offering franchise arrangements. They hope to have a network of 15 within a year. (UA’s writer’s comment: “I demand that this be shut down. It is an insult to Native Americans, who are expert at the use of hatchets. We are stealing their culture once again! Shame! Shame!”
