when referring to the plural of Axis. 

"Axels"
Sorry. Look it up in any decent book on Grammar and Engineering.

Impeccable sources confirm that the plural of "Axis" is "Axles." Axis is a word borrowed from Engineering, and this is how that field handles the wording.

It is an important topic. May people screen other people online based on grammar! If you want to impress the most smartest cookies on this fair and fine dating site, it is best to know the most obscure grammar points. To which case being nice, as in punctilious, is key.
