it's usually just the handles that wear out, weather and snap. It happened to two of mine.
I came across some handles and thought it was time to have long rakes again!
Step 1: Take Off Old Handle
Step 2: Sand New Handle to Match Old Handle
Keep test fitting as you go. If you over sand and the handle gets too skinny, just sand off the end and keep working at it.
Step 3: Remove Rust
I put it in the sand blaster for a quick cleanup.
Step 4: Reform As Needed
Step 5: Paint Metal Rake
You can slow that down by coating them with paint!
I used a hammer tone spray paint.
I like to hang items that need paint from a low branch with baling wire. Make a simple hook and be sure nothing will bump it if a breeze picks up.
