We have this "too dangerous" attitude, yet we blame video games and Obama for the state our children are in when they enter society.
C'mon, on a "dangerous" scale of 1 to 10, operating the valve on a log splitter is about a 1.3 for the kid. I couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 when I started running the valve.
There are a lot of important things you can teach a young impressionable mind with something that simple. Communication, following instructions, concentration, responsibility. Everything young people coming out of high school lack these days.
You can just as easily mash your own hand in the splitter.
Let the kid run the splitter. Don't TELL your kid about safety, TEACH him about safety.
