The jig offers the  simplest peening option.

It is relatively easy to master and produces good results in most circumstances, and excellent results with practice.

Phil started peening with a jig and we recommend most people to do the same.

This is a cost effective way to start peening. By making it affordable, we hope it will encourage more people to have a go.

We know from personal experience that learning to peen brings more joy to scything!

See our Peening Guide for more information on all aspects of peening.


This jig is great if:

  • you are peening occasionally
  • you are peening blades mainly used for mowing rougher grass and weeds
  • you need to peen a blade that has not been peened in a long time / has never been peened.
  • you want a stepping stone to freehand peening
  • you need a budget entry point.

You might be better with the Fux Deluxe Peening Jig if:

  • you expect to do a lot of peening (multiple blades, many times a year)
  • you will be mainly mowing fine meadows and lawns
  • you expect to stick with jig peening over your scything career

NOTE: Blades need to be peened regularly for this jig to work most effectively.

There is no need to buy a specialist hammer for use with a jig. You can use a standard carpenters hammer with a minimum weight of 1lb (454g).
