Clarence, a while back you recommended not to lean an ax against the wall, they will bend from gravity. You may remember a few nice ones that sat in Dad's barn for 30 years, and took on a nice warp. You could almost split wood around a corner. Since they were original handles on nice heads, I leaned them against a wall in the basement, with the bow out, and they are almost straight now. Was thinking about making a jig on one of the work benches with pegs and maybe a bottle jack to straighten some of those nice originals when I run across them. What do you think?
