All you said in your post was that you wanted to know how to better repair handles.
Well, some of us don't repair handles, because we know they will break almost immediately the next time we use the tool.

I've never had a glued handle hold up for long, and usually it breaks again right when you need it most.

The only effective repair I've ever found is to replace the handle.

You never said anything about the tools being ones you didn't need or use very often. In fact the way it was worded it sounded like you had a chronic problem with broken tool handles.

I'll admit that it was more ambiguous than it might have been. Usually, you don't know what misunderstandings you'll create until they happen. I did say this, though, which was meant to specify that these tools were not critical:

"This falls into the category of puttering---none of these tools are the only one of its type that I have,..."

My intention was to find out if there's anything that can be done to make a quick, largely unnecessary fix any better. Clearly, that didn't come across.
