Using the LM250
Select the striking point with care by placing the wedge axe's wedge-shaped point precisely where you want to split the block of wood. Begin splitting the block of wood from the edges – it's easier that way.
Lift the striking bar up. It slides up and down inside the tube extending upwards from the wedge-shaped point and the wedge blade remains constantly in place.
Strike the striking bar down and it will cause the wedge point to embed itself in the wood. You can strike softly or hard – just as you like – and use repeated blows as necessary.
