Stan, What is Sacred About a Broken Handle of any Kind??.....Do whatever is needed to remove, and Buy a new handle and Install it. Hammer handles are a 15 to 30 minuet job on average.
I only use a #1 Irrigation shovel and I will not throw it away. Go price a #1 to a crappy POS #2 shovel! A new handle is still a few minuet R&R job!
Why do you keep a tool around when it is easy to fix, If you are breaking the handle then maybe Y'all are using the wrong tool for a given job or just abusing it it beyond regular stresses!
There is no reason to keep a crappy broken handle in a hammer shovel etc, etc, when it is easy to fix and you have your favorite tool back a 100 %!

John A.,

Settle down. There's no point in getting yourself all worked up answering a different question than the one I asked. I can't justify spending half an hour repairing a tool I don't need. That's why I asked the question I did. If a tool has given me good service---and I know how not to abuse tools, but thanks for suggesting it---I hate to just throw it away if it breaks. So I'll spend a few minutes fixing it and it can be a last resort tool, or a loaner I don't expect to get back.

Did you notice, I didn't tell you how you should use your tools?
