Alright, I've been looking to buy a board with the intention of splitting it. I found a *new* 165 Arbor Element on CL locally. I figured I'd go to look at it and it'd be scratched and dinged and what not. Nope. It's mint. It's gorgeous. My will to saw is wilting.
I was actually HOPING it would be kind of scuffed up from lift line banging and whatever. It would make the sawing less soul crushing.
Yeah, definitely thinking about maybe hiring it out. I have quite a bit of wood working experience, but I've never split a board before. If I had access to a table saw, it'd be no big deal, but unfortunately I'd have to do it with a circular saw and a guide. Very doable, but not as fool proof as a table saw.
Talking the Cartels on the Custom? That's my buddies stick and bindings if it's the same one. He needs to get off that stuff pretty bad if you're interested in splitting a couple year old Custom. It's a 58
