Glad I'm not the only one who's scared of disc cutters :D

Bloody good job as usual Tony :)

I will never use one of the bloody things again!

But yes a top notch job  :tu:

This is where I got to today  :D



 :gimme: Very nice, I like this axe shape on smaller size. Assuming the metal on this old axe is right this mod should turn out lovely :tu:

It feels like some very good steel Firiki (although there are a few micro cracks in a few places  :think: )

Good result considering you used a death wheel  :ahhh

They scare the poop out of me!

I nearly cut my nose off with a cut off wheel:



I was cutting aluminum window channel when the dang thing shattered, and kicked back hitting me in the face.  Hurt like hell too.  I was wearing eye protection, but not a full face shield.  Yes, there was a lot of blood, and fatty bits dripping off.  I was home with my daughter (about age 7 at the time).  I drove the old Land Rover holding a towel to my nose, and told her when to move the shifter while we went to the hospital. 

It was a Saturday and the plastic surgeon came in grumbling something to the effect of, "Every time someone has a cut on their face, they just HAVE to call me in, why don't they just sew the damn thing up!" when he looked up and saw my nose.  He stopped, stared and said, "I'm not sure I can fix that in the ER..."

Luckily for me, my family is "blessed" with an abundance of nose tissue.  He sewed the entire left half of my nose back onto my face (it was a free flap).  Hurt like hell.  Seriously.  Not too much of a scar either.  :D

Edit to add: There's probably a fair amount of my DNA left on that broken disc.

I like it. :tu:  I think it might look even better if you could shape the top to mirror the pointed lugs on the bottom of the eye though.

I've been using the first one I finished to make the handle for the big one, (slowly)
it works really well as a woodworking tool, I've been chopping, shaping and shaving wood with it  :tu:

Added, And you were right about the head, I had to add a metal wedge  :)

Yeah it did look like it out a lot of torque through the top of the axe :)

I bet it was good at woodworking duties as you can really choke up on it :tu:

Linseed oil and pine tar mix





Wax and pine tar mix on handle and head  :tu:



I think it would be better with a longer handle, something like the Forest axe handle.... one day
