We present an axiomatic framework for what we call Mach's mechanics, inspired on the ideas by A. K. T. Assis and P. Graneau about relational mechanics. We show that, in contrast to a suggestion of these authors, Mach's principle does not need to be committed with any Weber's like gravitational force. Actually it is possible to settle an axiomatic framework for non-relativistic classical particle mechanics which incorporates Mach's principle and is still consistent with any force that obeys the Newtonian action-reaction principle. We make further criticisms concerning relational mechanics.
