As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- öxull (ǫxull)
- m. an axle, Lat. axis; veltask sem hvel um öxul, Pr. 476; en öxull skal millim vera, Sks. 89 new Ed. öxul-tré, n. an axle-tree, Sks. 423.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, öxull may be more accurately written as ǫxull.
