    Good, certainly well beyond sufficient.

    Thanks, I didn't know about the use of towels etc.. for dampening the break. I tried the cylinder method using a 12' pole but it didn't budge.

    We just got done heating it up w/ oxy + acet + rosebud tip, with a come-along and sledge hammer. It was out 1.25" and we got it back .25" after a lot of effort. Nothing was working so we quenched the inside of it with water and it sucked back over. It ain't perfect but I can work with it or cut the ****ed thing off and start over.

    That looks amazingly like my wood splitter.... My uncle built it back in the mid 70's and it still runs strong to this day....

    If the OP's splitter was mine... I'd just cut off the backstop plate and weld on a stub beam of similar size to the main beam. problem solved.

    Yes, exactly, there is no reason the plate couldnt be cut and welded if need be.

    Personally I would gouge out the face of the plate, place a couple good BFH swings til its where i want it and weld solid. Then take a couple semi circle pieces "the length of the plate" and weld them solid on the back.
