It's Friday, about 5:17 pm and you're just pulling into the driveway.
With a half-hearted "Click" from your garage door opener, you watch your garage door strain to peel itself off of the concrete. It looks almost as tired as you feel after putting in your time at work all week.
As the garage door rounds the halfway mark your right hand involuntarily moves to turn down the radio in an almost subconscious attempt to concentrate on pulling into the garage (as if it actually helps).
Then you see it...
The strain in your shoulders eases up, the pressure on your chest melts away, and you start to relax as the wall (or pile if you're like me) of axes waiting to get rehung and restored is slowly revealed by the garage door.
This is your personal retreat, your Valhalla, the slight scent of mold and the threat of tetanus keeps your partner, children, and worries from ever daring to enter this sacred place.
I'm proud to be able to offer you the newest addition to your sanctuary - The Whiskey River Bevel Guide Bottle Opener.
Legally we can't condone sharpening axes and drinking but we do condone America - and last time I checked, in America, if you're of age, on your property, and awesome you can do what you please so long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.
These Bevel gauges are cut from .06" think 304 Stainless Steel - which means they're light enough to be comfortable in hand but think enough that you don't have to worry about bending them.
They are precision made by DFM Toolworks out of Chicago Illinois so you know they are about the highest quality you can find in a product like this.
They will help you dial in bevels from 15 degrees to 60 degrees while also helping you sit back, relax, and enjoy the beverage of your choosing.
This is a great tool for checking angles on axes. Works great.
Great product, great price, great company! Keep up the great work!
Everyone needs one.
Well thought out bevel gauge. Good quality, plus the added feature of a bottle opener. However, I have two issues and both are with the bevel angle numbers.
First, the numbers should be on the gauge so that I can read them from with the axe head pointing away from me. In other words; the numbers are upside down. Of course this is subjective.
Second, what ever process was used for the numbers, is not very sharp. The text is a bit "foggy" and should be "sharper" and as it's in a goldish color it's sometimes hard to see and should most likely be black more like what the image above shows. THAT being said, I think the numbers should actually be stamped in as opposed to screen printed or whatever process was used. Then they'd be really easy to see and would last a lifetime.
