Broken Wood Handle Garden Tool? How to fix rake, shovel, or spade!
Please Like, Comment, and Subscribe!
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.
