Winter arrived together with the 'wrong kind of snow' :) - check this link
for more details. If you have a car, I think it is mandatory to have on your car's trunk a small winter / snow kit including a snow shovel.
That snow shovel must be light, durable, to have a good grip and to be cheap. All these - except the last point - are easy to find in some brand products on the market. But they are not cheap, are opposite. So how to overcome this?
This instructable will show you how to build your own light, durable, with good grip and cheap car snow shovel.
Materials needed for a light, durable, with good grip and cheap car snow shovel:
-a hand shovel only the metal part - here my choice was an aluminum one, it is lighter and good enough for hard snow / the right type of ice :) (or you can choose the iron type) - just make sure it is flat and wide enough at the front end
-a wooden shovel handle to fit the metal hand shovel
- 2 pcs of a long wood screw (5cm / 2 inches)
- 1 pcs of a short wood screw (1 cm / 1/2 inch)
Tools needed to build a light, durable, with good grip and cheap car snow shovel:
-screw driver Philips head (cross)
-a panel saw
-drill bits to fit diameter size for the wood screw (3mm / 0,11 inch)
