Here is a nice family, Mr. and Mrs. Ballpeen Hammer with Junior. The handles were broken off and the heads were rusty and dirty. Now they have a new lease on life with solid ash, custom turned handles. The heads have been custom fitted into a cradle that helps suppress vibration from the blows and forms a strong cushion should the target be missed, which is the cause of most broken handles. No expoxy, just good mechanics and tight fit.
