Axesky sharpening system
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:03:21 PM »

This idea has been kicking about in my head for some time
I wanted an easy way to 'reset' the bevels on an Axe



I was thinking of using it on a badly treated axe, this one is just a test (4 1/2 lb ELWELL)






That's working  :)


Then on to a slack belt to blend in the bevels


Holds the axe head firmly while I attack it with some 120 grit 'sandpaper'


After the Polishing mop (probably should have waited with this final sharpening until I had hung it  ::) )


After a trip to the wire wheel and some linseed oil




Everything’s adjustable
