HUTCHINSON SPLITTING WEDGE

•Measures-12 1/2"

Vintage BLACK POWDER SPLITTING WEDGE. Marked: HUTCHINSON MFG CO. on the wedge edge.  Has remnants of original paint.

This older tool was used by driving the wedge end into a log or stump, placing a fuse in the hole in the side and black powder in the tube, and lighting. The powder would ignite, exhaust out the end, and the resulting percussion would cause the wood to split.

CONDITION- Vintage, used. Remnants of paint, surface soil.  Selling As Is, As Found- we've done no cleaning. To see details and evaluate condition for yourself, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL THE PHOTOS BELOW as they are a large part of the description. If you still have questions, please ask, and we'll do our best to answer them!

•We're selling a variety of interesting items- see our other listings-we combine shipping to save you money!•

•••If you have a positive Feedback rating of 5 or less, please email us before bidding, or your bid may be cancelled without notice. We ask for this contact from a new ebay member just so we know you understand the bidding and payment process. A little communication goes a long way, and keeps the Boss from getting nervous about the sale. Thanks! •••

We expect payment through PayPal, or payment arrangements to be made within 3 days of the auction's end.
We like payment by PayPal, but also accept other forms of payment- for more options, email us before bidding.

THE small PRINT:

SHIPPING: We usually ship within 1-2 business days of payment receipt-large items may take up to 5 days. We pack items securely, and shipping costs are always what the ebay calculator figures for that size and weight, including Delivery Confirmation so you can track your package + .50¢ to help cover our supply costs and fees. We don't make money on shipping-we often actually LOSE, especially now that both Paypal AND ebay take a cut of what you pay sellers for shipping!

COMBINED SHIPPING: We are happy to COMBINE SHIPPING COSTS if you win more than one item from us, providing the items will pack compatibly. Contact us before you pay, so we can figure the combined total and adjust your invoice.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We really appreciate our many international customers! We PREFER to ship items PRIORITY. But, for items that weigh less than 4 lbs, we CAN ship 1st Class to save you money. Just understand that if YOU CHOOSE this shipping, we can not guarantee or track shipping time or delivery to your country. Most of the time this method is fine, it just might take a while to arrive. But, as we have no way to track 1st class packages, we can take no responsibility for them once we deliver them to our Post Office, and you must understand that YOU CHOOSE THIS METHOD AT YOUR OWN RISK. All import duties or custom fees for International Sales are the responsibility of the buyer. We don't alter the selling price on custom forms, or mark items as "gifts"-so please don't ask.

•••We like Feedback! We hope you're pleased, and when you receive your item, let us know by posting Feedback. When rating our service, please remember that we have no control over shipping costs-we use ebay's shipping calculator- if it over-charges, we refund to your paypal account. If you don't like the shipping cost, complain to ebay (both ebay and paypal take a cut of what you pay sellers for actual shipping!). Please don't give us a low star rating for it -just leave that star line blank. If our actual service has disappointed you, contact us! Once we know you're satisfied, we'll quickly post feedback for you!•••

We describe items to the best of our ability, and try to provide detailed photos. Any flaws we know of will be presented in the description AND/OR in photos. Opinions presented in the description are just that-our opinion- yours might be different. In the end, it's your responsibility as a buyer to make your own evaluation of the item and condition and to Ask Questions if you need to-we're happy to answer them or to provide more photos if you need to see a different view . Please read the description, look at the pictures, and Ask Any Questions you might have-before you bid. We sell vintage, used items. Some wear can be expected, as well as surface dirt and dust, as we sell things As Found.

RETURNS: We want you to be happy, so returns will be accepted -IF- THE ITEM IS SIGNIFICANTLY NOT AS DESCRIBED- but not just because you decide you don't like it. CONTACT US within 3 DAYS, AND SHIP THE ITEM WITHIN 14 DAYS OF RECEIPT- this 2 week period is to keep in compliance with ebay's newest rules. If you NEED that much time to ship it back-ok. But we would greatly appreciate it happening in a more timely 3-7 days if possible. You must provide us with a Delivery Confirmation Number as proof of mailing, so the package can be tracked. If the item is in the same condition as we sent it out, your Purchase Price will be refunded- this does NOT include shipping costs. Buyer pays all return shipping -THIS MUST INCLUDE DELIVERY CONFIRMATION if you return the item. A bid is an acceptance of these terms.

All items are available for local pick up. Contact us for directions.

IF A DOLLAR BILL IS IN THE PHOTO, IT'S FOR SIZE REFERENCE ONLY. SOME PHOTOS ARE GREATLY MAGNIFIED TO SHOW DETAIL. PLEASE REFER TO MEASUREMENTS IN LISTING AND/OR PHOTO ON MEASURING MAT TO DETERMINE TRUE SIZE.

I've realized that my description of how this worked may not be entirely accurate- my reading suggested it would exhaust out the end, but this style has a Closed End... Will now leave the working descriptions to the experts. My apologies.
