    My elderly neighbor gave me about 26 axes that had been in a wheelbarrow that filled up full of water.

    Every single head was loose, and some of the handles were badly cracked or warped. Because of the rust, no markings were visible. I started cleaning them up, and re-wedging the ones that had solid handles.

    Did this one first, a nice little Plumb hatchet.

    Ended up rehanging 6 full sized and two hatchets, with another 6 or 8 that I’ll have to get new handles for.

    Several Plumb, several True Temper, a Worth, a Homestead (Collins), one simply marked Tempered, one with a triangle that might be a Council, and a few unmarked.

    All these were fitted back to solid handles and re set with hickory wedges.
