A relatively simple jig that allows both bevels of an axe head to be ground at exactly the same angle over the full length of the edge (maximum head size 165mm). A nice solution to a problem often encountered when grinding by hand. You can of course, if you choose, have different bevel angles on each side by simply adjusting the height of the support - this is the sort of control that you can only get with a Tormek.

Good for sharpening cheap axesUseful if you want to sharpen a cheap axe but produces a concave grind - rather than the convex 'lemon shaped' profile most good axes require.
