Wood Replacement Handles

Buy Wood Replacement Handles here at The Hammer Source!

The Hammer Source has a wide variety of replacement of WOOD and FIBERGLASS handles. 

PLEASE read here before you call me for help. I am happy to help but I am going to ask if you read this first!

The manufacturer or brand of the hammer is not important. The handles can be used for many types of hammers. 
The important factor is, WILL THE HANDLE FIT THE EYE OF THE TOOL/HAMMER? 

Wood Handles:

1. MEASURE THE EYE SIZE of you hammer- The long (major) and width (minor).  
2. Next determine its shape- round, rectangular, oval or teardrop. 
3. Choose the length.
4. Handle dimensions should almost equal eye size. You may need to file or sand a wood handle to fit. You can always make it smaller. YOU CAN NOT MAKE IT BIGGER!
5. Pound the handle through the eye.
6. Trim off any excess handle protruding through the eye.
7. Wood handles come with a wood wedge which is driven into the kerf first.
8. The steel wedge is driven in at a 30 degree angle to the head (about 2 o'clock).

Our Nupla Fiberglass handles handles are shaped like this:


Fiberglass handles need to have about a 1/8" space around the handle to allow for the glue. Select the largest handle that allows for at least a 1/8" space around the handle. 

Handles include a glue kit unless noted.
 
To replace a fiberglass handle:
1. Tape the bottom of the hammer head with masking tape.
2. Mix the two part epoxy- THOROUGHLY.
3. Pour some epoxy into the head.
4. Place the handle into the head, and secure the handle to something (a jig).
5. Pour the rest of the epoxy around the handle.
6. DO NOT DISTURB FOR AT LEAST 24 HOURS, LONGER IF LESS THAN 70 DEGREES.


If you don't see what you need, e-mail or give us a call. But remember, I am going to ask you if you read this first and measured your eye size!
