Tapered Axe Handle Dowel Wedges

  • Sale
  • Regular price $10.50

Are you looking for an alternative to the traditional steel barrel wedges?



These hard maple conical wedges are just the thing for getting that extra little bit of grip when dealing with a loose axe head, or even just ensuring it stays tight in the first place when re-hanging a head!


Simply pre-bore a 3/8" hole in the top of the offending handle to your desired depth, and then drive the wedge home to exert spreading force in all directions. For an extra firm hold, a dab of wood glue can be put in the bottom of the hole before inserting the wedge. Makes drilling out the eye of an axe to replace a broken handle much easier than dealing with stubborn steel wedges!

Pack of 10 wedges. Made right here in the USA!

Small End Diameter: 3/8"

Large End Diameter: 5/8"

Length: 1-1/2"

Dowel Wedges

Haven't used them yet but watched the video on installation and I'm ready to go. Dowels look solid I'm sure will function as expected!

I love the idea and am checking them out!

I'm not very experienced at rehandling, but looking at options this was a great idea to help lock down the heads.

Nothing in this world that is easy is worth it, except these wedges!

Wedging simplified. Perfection is attainable! Cracking eliminated or greatly minimized. Aesthetically superior. I’ll never go back to steel. Period.

Step wedge replacement

Used one in place of a step wedge in a rehang. Worked great, looks great. Seems very solid and looks like it will hold up to some abuse. Great product.
