Hey guys, I thought I would share my latest project. I bought this axe for $5 at the local flea market and really wanted to make it stand out.

This is a bit janky and unwieldly, and the jurryrigged idler pulley for the slackbelt clutch isnt the most responsive. In order to fix this I will be making a new motor mount to mount the motor down low and behind the hammer, building a new idler arm for
