As the title says, I would like to buy a cheap set of old ice axes and crampons that i can use to learn mixed climbing with.

I started my first season on ice/mixed with Koflach + Foot Fangs and a set of Hummingbirds. It was cheap, but terrible for learning to mixed climb with. Good luck out there!

I imagine the "Birds were more of a hindrance than the Footfangs, no?

We called them the knuckle busters.  The foot fangs were actually pretty decent though, and the Koflach boots were always so warm. So that was nice.

I can set you up. Have a pair of older  grivel rambos or charlet mosers. Have two fixed heads charlet mosers.  Super nice tools.
