Watch a cheap woodworker repair his grain shovel’s handle rather than buy a new one!

Great work on the repair, very interesting video with nice details on the procedure. I enjoyed watching.

Nice video and repair, I was thinking you should have just turned an entirely new handle but maybe you lathe is not big enough? In any case, the repair looks like it is very adaquete for its purposes and the workmanship looks very nice indeed. Bob

That was a nice repair. He didn’t mention it but he should have made sure the tennon went to the bottom of the drilled hole. If he is scooping sawdust he will probably be okay but he said grain scoop like he might be using it for grain. Wheat and corn are heavy.

Nice repair and nice video. I have never touched a lathe. And to be honest… this is the first video I’ve seen using a lathe. I’ve got so many other ideas in my head of things I’d like to make that I’ve purposely stayed away from the lathe. LOL. But… I have two friends that have lathes and both have been telling me that I can come check theirs out. Guess I might have to take them up on it. :)

Nice strong looking repair,If were my shovel handle I would have left out in the field across from my house and waited for a hoop snake to sting it with his tail.My neighbor left his shovel out there one day and he’s still getting wood from the same handle hasn’t stopped growing.
Although hoop snakes are getting rarer. It’s not like the old days when they were rolling around everywhere.
