    We have a thread for found axes, axes in use, what about axes done being fixed?

    I'll start with my latest rehang. Fleetwood single bit by Collins on a Truper handle from Lowe's. The grain run out is not exciting, time will tell how it does. Not exactly a beautiful specimen with the edge shape and possibly bent on the top view, but it's back in service.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention it was a Christmas present from the in-laws since I've gotten into axes lately. It came with an old pick and an unknown, possibly blacksmith tool.

    Is fleetwood around the same time as Collins Bonded. The logos look similar. Nice work.

    I rehung a Kelly Registered axe i picked up the other day for a few bucks, on the handle it came with. Looked at it a little while later and notice a crack near the eye that I swear wasn't there before. Went from having a pretty cool collectible to junk in minutes. I'll try for pics later, I hope.

    not a axe.....did hang a passed down eight pound sledge . Ground the mushroom and did a quick polish first. I like the contrast of deep rust pits and a polished striking surface.

    Sweet sledge A Visitor.

    Hung this no name boy's axe. It has ribs in the eye so it might be a Kelly. It also looked like it was painted red. It's for my great uncle who is 96. Hung it on a 28" boys axe handle from O.P. link. They seem to be pretty good.

    Here's a Plumb Boys axe (my Dads old axe). I still remeber him using it. I hung on a House handle octagaon. I have never had any luck with metal wedges but I tried and split it a little as you can see. I pulled the wedge as soon as I saw the split. Oh well, it probably will not be the last handle in her.

    I got this Collins Connecticut off a popular auction site. It had an owners name written in magic marker really big on the 32" handle. Nobody else bid so I got it cheap. I just had to remove the head and sand off the name and smooth out the rough spots.

    Pretty good looking guys!

    I've got a True Temper, Kelly Axe and Tool Co double bit on my plate next. Beat up a bit, but still seems solid. Will know more once I get the wirecup to it. I'm trying to save the handle. It's solid, but bows in both directions a bit. I ran the fireplace today, so I set it on top to heat it up and used some wood clamps to straighten it out. We'll see if it holds.

    plumb victory cedar axe. There are actually two in the soaker - the one in front was hung yesterday. Picked up a flint edge hatchet with a hudson bay style handle. was able to reuse the handle on this plumb axe. It has some checking and cracking but hopefully it will hold up to some moderate/light use.

    picked up this true temper flint edge "hatchet" for $9 this weekend. Used the handle on the plumb axe above. Hung the flint edge tonight on a 19" re-use/saved handle. Came out nice I think.

    I haven't done an axe for a few weeks. But I made a new handle for this auger last week and re-handled a little army shovel today.
