Yes that would be the correct way good suggestion. I keep avoiding gettig a welder cause just don't understand i could see thru those visors.

We have been slowly converting all of our hand tools to all Structron. Great quality and the tool is designed to work for you.
Kolbalt is lowes high end brand it is a good shovel and currently we own 3 for over a year. They are highly abused.
A good hand tool will have a steel shank connecting the tool head to the handle. also a hollow fiberglass handle is junk.
We keep a five gallon bucket full of sand and some old oil mixed in. just dunk the tool head in the sand a few times. Cleaned and oiled. no mess.
Also we sharpen all tools when we buy them it makes a big difference. Beware it is also much easy to cut irrigation & utility lines.
Well they certainly have almost anything you need. Missed seeing springee rakes. I really like your idea of having a bucket of sand and oil to dip. My sons always keep asking why the shovels in my truck are so sharp. Funny how when you use them in this texas rock how they get sharp.
