Fix That Shovel!!!! by William

Holy cow! Do you actually know how hard it is to find a decent snow shovel? Do you know what snow is? If not, I’m bummed for you, it’s a lot of fun.
Anyways, I’ve had this shovel for a long long time. Let me think of how long….


Okay, I’ve decided I’ve had this snow shovel for at least 13 years. That’s a long time!!
Well, last year, the shovel tried to retire itself on me.




Well, that’s not going to happen as long as snap ties and a drill bit are easily available! Uh, ignore the clothes on the floor. There were more important things to take care of at the moment, like ole blue shovel here. So, as you can see here, I drilled the bejesus out of this motha. The dremel made short work of this task.
Time for some Snap Ties (or zip ties, whatever.)


This is actually round 2 with the Dremel and Snap ties. You can see the large ones there, they were necessary because the other ones were not holding up.
Yea, it seems dumb that I left the tails to the inside, but that is so the locks wouldn’t wear off on the pavement, and I also left them on for easy adjustment to tighten it up.

Currently, the shovel is still kicking, I just sharpened it, might have been a bad idea, it shovels too good now. A few Ties are gone at the bottom, but it’s still moving snow!
