Hi,

I just posted a new video on installing a new handle for a file.
It is quite an indepth tutorial.

There is no ads. Just sharing the information around.

I remember when I would replace sledgehammer handles with the scrub oak growing behind the concrete plant I used to work at. Guys would drive over them with the concrete mixers and thise handles would just spring bach to shape. I really like a well made handle! Nicely done.

Are you worried about changing the temper of the tang?

That is a good question on the tang. The most important part is the file teeth. I have seen the same
treatment of the tang on knife installation and it does not affect the operation of the blade.

I have made more videos. Do check it out
