When was the last time you inspected and repaired all your handled tools?

January 31, February 1: Hammer Handle Day

An anvilfire day on the last weekend of January, or first days of February dedicated to wood handled tool cleanup and repair.

Repair all those abused, worn and weathered tool handles. Replace, re-wedge, glue, sand, varnish, paint and repair those neglected handled tools. Every tool from shovels to fine graving hammers can benefit from a touch with a file or grinder, a little paint and varnish. They will last longer and be safer to use.

Handle Repair an FAQ

Comic of the day! Don't miss it!

Ajax Welding Corp window with spider web being welded by spider using tiny Lincoln Tombstone welder
"Is that spider using a tiny Lincoln Tombstone welder?"

The red round top "tombstone" shape of Lincoln arc welders are probably the most recognizable welding machine on the planet. For decades this was the standard "buzz box" or transformer welder large and small shops all over the world. Many of these nearly indestructable welders are still in service after half a century of use and abuse.
