An 80¢ masterlink is all it took to repair the woodsplitter.
With the chain repaired, I can resume splitting firewood for the winter without throwing my shoulder out.
It reminds me of something. "I have taught myself to sew, cook, fix plumbing, build furniture - I can even pat myself on the back when necessary - all so I don't have to ask anyone for anything." I like doing things for myself. It feels good.
