billp Posted February 26, 2010 Share Posted February 26, 2010 I got a few shovel blades for fire place sets but I'm having trouble attaching the blade to the handle stock. I tried to spread the end and attach with rivets but did not spread it out enough and it seems like it would be to thin if I spread it out any more. I finely just spread it out then arc welded it together. Looks like junk so I'll shorten the handle and will use this one at my forge. A late though did come to me to possible split the end of the handle about a 1/2 inch then turn and flatten that and attach with rivets? Any ideas would help as I'm still learning.
