This was fun to make but I’m not sure how much use I will get out of it. You can get an idea of the size from the second picture where I have it in my left hand. I thought it might be nice for small chiseling tasks. I drilled the Aluminum on the lathe, and then cut the handle tenon to fit to a very tight fit. I can always wedge the head if the need arises. After the tenon was cut I drove the aluminum head on to the handle. I then turned the the rest of the handle to fit my hand.
It is amazing what can be made from material from the scrap yard. I love wondering around scrap yards before it gets to hot in the summer. I always come home with plenty of great deals.
Thanks for looking and commenting, Have a great and blessed evening, Todd
