Hi, can i just add my bit James whilst its about spades? My partner has broken my 24yr old spade yesterday, great! The shaft of it has snapped inside the metal bit, he probably put all his 17stone weight on it whilst digging a shrub out, it has been well used though. It has been lovely to use just the right size for me. I thought of mending it, if there's a strong glue for sticking wood together but just seen some new replacement shafts/handles on internet but don't know if it would be a good fit, I can always shave a bit off it if too big. Does anyone know of any shops that sell replacement handles then I'll know if it fits? R I may buy a new spade that has a lifetime guarantee saw some on BQ website.
