So my uncle and cousin built a log splitter wedge that splits a log into 4 parts. Well first time it touched a log it busted in half. I fixed it by welding the two sides back together on the inside this time not just on outside and rewelding the back part on with another piece back there. He went back tried it again and this time one side wedge came off so I welded it back on putting 3 passes on it so it wouldnt break for sure. Works great now. Hasnt broke yet and welds were strong enough to allow the sides to bend but didnt break. Came to the conclusion that my uncle must be loosing hit touch with welding. Wish could of had before pictures because my uncles welds were a sight for sore eyes.
