the tanks on all my stuff are empty freon bottles.. NO SHAME for using what you have available here.. Ha even on my splitter. Have no use for a splitter any more so it's going to become a bending break or some such usable thing. I just used it to crush empty freon tanks last year. I built this thig 30 years ago... still running.

Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

I made one way back when we sold firewood (30 years ago) ---- going to use the old pump off of it on my dump trailer. Probably put the cylinder in the shed. It was a new one from f&f at cost of $114.00 at the time--4" x 24" x 2" rod. it would split anything you could get up on it. Used an old worn out b&s 9 hp cast iron motor on it.
