I'm looking at building a log splitter. The two stage hydraulic pump i'm looking at using has the potential for 3000 PSI output, however the ram which it will feed is only rated to 2200 PSI. I skipped out on fluid dynamics at TAFE so I just need to know if there's a simple way to limit the fluid pressure to the ram. I *really* don't want that cylinder to let go at those pressures. In return for any advice, i'll post up a thread to show my creation at a later date.
