    An Ax To Grind - A Practical Ax Manual

    The task of restoring my three axes has been weighing on my mind most of the winter. I have been putting it off since one has a nice ding in it from grubbing and the other two may need new handles. I know enough to do the job, or at least I thought I did until I stumbled across the following film and accompanying manual. I won't apologize for it's length. The old ways often take more patience that most folks seem to have these days.



    Here's a pdf with additional useful information: http://scoutmaster.typepad.com/axegrind.pdf

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
