Haven't put them on yet but they look sturdy and perfect. (And made in the USA)
I do wish it came with the appropriate rivots. Or at least, what to look for at the hardware store. I did not want to use screws, or nut and bolt, but found something out hope will last. A little info sheet about what I should and should not put in the wood to make it last would be helpful. I like fixing instead of replacing.
I guess I'm old school because I hate to throw anything away when it is still usable. So, I am replacing several broken handles and the products from Beaver-Tooth Handle Co. are excellent...maybe better that the original.
A Real Pleasure To Deal With This Seller Makes Outstanding Handles It The 3rd One I Bought, Perfect Fit On All Three Of Them (Axe, Maul & Shovel) And Very Happy With Them 5 Stars All The Way
Got this handle to rebuild my Dad's old 1967 Tru Temper coal shovel that I have used since I was a teenager. Lots of sentimental value there. Handle was outstanding! The curve of the neck fit my old shovel's socket perfectly. The woodgrain was oriented just right. It was exactly what I needed to rebuild the old shovel. Over the years carpenter bees had eaten into the old shovels handle hollowing it out. Couldn't use it for snow and ice removal anymore. I was very happy that Beaver Tooth offered this up for sale. I know my local hardware shops don't carry anything like this!
