Has anyone got any tips for sharpening an axe?


YouTube has plenty of examples.

I use my belt sander.
something seems backwards

We sharpen saws on the flat bed oil grinder at “Tools for self reliance Cymru”
It’s hand work and usually finished with a stone to get rid of the scratches.

I have a file, a couple of stones and some oil, so I think I’m just going to go for it
