In Detail

Using the Axe Jig on the Axminster AC250WBS Wetstone Sharpening Machine allows you full control of the bevel angle, ensuring you achieve the same angle on each side and over the full length of the edge. A blunt axe is more likely to glance off; a sharp axe will cut in.

With the machine unplugged, put the jig onto the Universal Support Bar with the poll of the axe seated in the jig. Rest the edge of the axe on the stone and raise or lower the machine’s Universal Support Bar to the required bevel angle. Switch on the machine and move the edge across stone, following the shape of the edge. When you can feel a burr or wire edge turn the axe over and grind the other side. Check both sides have an equal grind. The bevel angle depends very much on the intended use; roughly 25° for chopping with a larger angle of 30° or more for splitting.

Bear in mind, the bevel of an axe is stronger and more efficient if it is slightly convex. We recommend after sharpening the edge, lowering the Universal Support Bar slightly and make a few passes on each side of the axe to create a more convex profile.
