  2. I purchased 3 of these gadgets quite some time ago. Gave one each to 2 sons and kept one. I subsequently used the gadget on a fiberglass garden fork handle and thus far everything is great. Beats trying to find another handle and an easy repair!
    I would recommend it for every barn or basement.

  3. I don't know, a solution in search of a problem that you still have a cracked handle on a farm implement? It would be more prudent and safer having a new handle put on. They are not that expensive and hard to do. I wouldn't buy this repair kit, wouldn't waste my money and time. You still will have to replace that handle eventually.

  4. My Don got one of those recently after seeing it in Countryside Magazine. Don't know if he's used it yet though. Nancy

  6. We bought 3 of these as well, gave two away and kept one. Wonderful product, works wonders on all kinds of stuff. I also would recommend it.

  7. I have seen something similar used on hoses. They used something similar also in ww2 on hydraulic hoses in aircraft.
