Welcome to The Hammer Source - Replacement Handle Source!

READ THESE HELPFUL HINTS FIRST!!

Handle orders must be placed on line. 
I do not take handle orders over the phone. 
If you have a handle question, SEND me an e-mail.

Round eye handles are on this page.


Find your wood replacement handle:
1. Determine your tool's eye shape:
a. Round
b. Rectangle
c. Oval
d. Teardrop or pear shape

 2. Measure your tool's eye size:
 a. Measure the Major (long part) and the Minor (wide part) of the opening where the handle inserts.
b. Choose a handle with an eye size as close to the opening as possible. A tight fit is essential!
     (If you find your handle is too big, you can carefully remove wood evenly from all surfaces.

3. Select the handle length.

Installing Wood Handles:
1. Pound the handle through the eye.
2. Trim off any excess handle protruding through the eye.
3. Drive wood wood wedge into the kerf (kerf is the slit at end of handle).
4. Drive the steel wedge in at a 30 degree angle to the head (about 2 o'clock).
