The handle of his garden rake broke off where it joins to the business end of the rake. He tried using a leaf rake but it didn’t work very well as a replacement for a garden rake.
It looks like the wood just rotted away. I suggested that it could probably be fixed.
After cleaning out as much of the rotted wood as he could, Charlie drilled a hole through the metal casing and the shaft.
He put it back together with a small bolt and nut which has been working very well.
What do you do with old tools? (Obviously we save or salvage them.)
