it is such a great location,  It makes it hard to sleep at night. .

transitional type axes :early 18th centuries.  Transition for Trade Ax style to the American felling ax style!!

I would give them a nice E Bath as they should turn out real nice!!

Very cool

Very cool thank you again for the great info and ID. did some reading on the felling and colonial axes , very interesting read. 
the small ax piece looks to possibly be an old belt ax . there was obviously a lot of work going on in this deep woods spot at one time ,
with a good amount of land clearing. hard to tell looking at it now, its thick. but with the things im finding something was out here.
as soon as i pick up another charger i`ll be setting up the Ebath and zapping a few items. burnt up my good charger last month .
