I was browsing through the Garrett Wade site and on the home page there’s a link to tour the Wetterlings’ Axe factory. So I followed the link. I then come to find out that this…

...is the CEO of the Wetterlings Axe Forge. Wow, she’s hot and can grind an axe! lol, just goes to show that there’s nothing a woman can’t do. Bravo.

Heres the link for the tour- http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=4902972&id=180736467380&fbid=435044337380

When I think of grinding an axe I recall this mental image of my Grandfather sitting at a grinding wheel that he powered with his feet while applying the axe to the wheel.

This picture of grinding an axe is about as different from that as any picture could be.

That grinding wheel doesn’t look like it’s spinning?

maybe that’s why she isn’t wearing safety glasses ;)

I just figured out that the seat she is sitting on is actually a clamp to keep pressure on the blade as the grinder surfaces the iron.
She can control the pressure by raising or lowering her weight on the seat.

Ingenious!

Check this shot out :
You can see the “C” arm of the clamp/hold down running off the seat affair.
Rather ingenius!

haha i’m really surprised with all the drama lately on Lumberjocks that no one has complained or has been offended by this?! maybe they are finally starting to see the lighter side, and lightening up!

that being said – that girl is smoking. i wish i was that jig..i mean had that jig (too far?) :)
