Your code doesn't compile for me but the basic answer to your question is here: use the p.axes_width() command to change the axes width. Go to a Sage cell server and type in

```
p = plot(sin(x), (x, 0, 2*pi))
p.axes_width(10)
p.show()
p.save("MyPic.pdf")
```

and you'll get the output with extremely thick axes. The bottom left will have a link to the PDF and that has the thick axes as well.

Given that latex is integrated with Sage, I think you could have much better looking graph paper working in LaTeX, such as is mentioned here. The tkz-fct package, for example can give good results.
