Broken shovel handle
Uprooting an invasive plant in my yard (old Japanese barberry) resulted in a broken shovel handle. It was an old shovel with a beautiful ash handle (soon to become a dibble if I can find some instructions-- another story!).
By what to do about the shovel head. It is in decent condition-- still bears the maker's mark from 1947, though it shows some wear.
can I retrofit a handle? The pin holding the hanles appears to have ben stamped(?)-- no way to remove pin without sawing it.
Any thoughts oin the shovel handle or dibble?
