So in the middle of my manic attack of cleaning and organizing my tool room and the stuff I was doing on the Willys. I came across the head for my Pulaski tool and the really nice if slightly bent Hickory handle I picked up at a yard sale for a couple bucks. This handle is some of the hardest Hickory I have ever shaped. Glad I have a 2 x 72" stationary Belt grinder to do it with. Anyway after at least a dozen trys and maybe an hour trying to get the handle to just the right shape. I manage to get it to fit properly and then I bang it all apart again. I mix up some slow cure epoxy (crap has to be 10 years old) and I slather the wood all up and then paint some more into the eye of the head. And I start banging the handle on top of my anvil to seat the head. Wipe up the mess then worry for 5 hours if the old epoxy will cure. It did so I sand out the handle clean up the epoxy mess and decide to give it a good painting. A little OSHA Safety Blue for the head, Some Red Pepper Red for the handle with a nice glossy black tip for trim. I let it dry almost long enough then I take it back to the grinder now with a 220 grit belt on it and give it a nice cutting edge. And a stout digging edge on the hoe end. Going to be one of my Pioneer tools on the back of the Willys. Next up is a dirt shovel. For that one I am thinking Black Blade, Yellow fiberglass handle, With a Safety Blue D grip on the end. Should make them both easy to find in the mud or snow or even just the pumice sand I plan on adventuring in a bunch when the Willys is done.
