If you have a lawn rake, garden rake, spade, shovel, axe, or other wood handled garden tool that is broken, there’s a few things you can do to fix the handle so you can use it again. I used wood glue to fix the cracked wood handle and let it dry over night, sanded it smooth, and applied a mineral oil to the handle (you can also use boiled linseed oil or another oil that is easily absorbed into wood), and straightened out the rake tines and put it back together. If you are still having trouble you can try drilling a hole through the handle and the metal portion of the rake and put a bolt through it to tighten it up even more, or even Gorilla glue can work well.

    A good reason to repair instead of automatically replace, beyond getting back to your project sooner, is because there is no planet B. This is planet A, and its resources are finite. Our children and grandchildren will thank us for reducing, reusing and recycling.

    Can do with out the music sounds porn like too loud.

    All the action of putting the rake to handle happens ABOVE THE PICTURE! Major fail.

    Great feeling of fixing your own tools. Plus you add to your skill set.

    Hi! Looks like it worked. = ) – my trying to ‘fix’ usually entails repairing what i need to work on first.
    ~ please Don’t complain’ that your Yard Rake isn’t new, Old beats new Any day! It’s a Great thing what you did.
    lol you didn’t say ‘dig up grass’ – with that rake? Your grass looks too thick & healthy, use Fork or Shovel > Much easier.

    Kinda interesting I do have a newer rake such as your that I am trying to figure how to get the sleeve off of Most of my tools are much different from this They are left overs from when my grandfather began farming in the mid 80s ….1880s that is My tools are mostly assembled by forge welding and the handles are desintergrating from just so much experience
