Chavender, I am sure that you will stick to the vice method that I described as soon as you have tried it. It gives a lot of control and makes splitting much, much easier than the "knife in the vice" or "nail in the bench" methods. Try it, you´ll be suprised. Bobby

i'll defiantly be trying it ,I've a number of things to try / learn ,i'd read the artices on the American forums (I visit a few looking for tips and info on methods etc ,plenty to have a play with),they're a great source of info on methods etc .I've got a separate work area sorted I've fitted out one of my outside sheds with a 8ft worktop and cabinets etc ready as theres more room out there and I can be as messy as I like.i have a good vice in my other shed so that'll be transferred over and there's room for the equipment etc
I try to be funny... but sometimes I merely look it! Steve
