When the kid breaks the Hickory handle of the favorite shovel twice, it gets a serious repair when glue only didn't do the job the first time.

I have given up on buying and using wood handles. I now weld light weight pipe to the tool heads. The best one I ever repaired was a weed-cutter........(those things you swing that have a flat cutting blade).......

If you learn how to let gravity do all the work, then life is good and handles last forever!
