How do you change a Pulaski handle?
Easy to reset so you can get back to getting the job done right. To re-handle simply remove the head with the provided allen wrench. Replace with new handle. Work with gravity to hit the bottom of the handle on the ground or a solid surface a few times to set head completely.
How do I remove a pickaxe handle?
Once the pick axe head is sat on the tapered section of the handle, hold the thin end, then raise it up and firmly hit the wedged end of the handle onto a firm solid base. Repeat this several times and it will secure the pick axe head to the tapered part of the handle.

How do I remove an old axe handle?
First, you can hit the axe head with a mallet or dead blow hammer, striking the bottom until it comes off the handle. Or you can do what I do; I clamp the head in a vise, place a drift on the top of the helve, and then hammer the drift until the shaft pops out.
What is a mattock pick?
: a digging tool with a head having a point at one end and a transverse blade at the other.
How does a hammer head stay on?
9 If the hammer has a wood handle, the handle is inserted up through the adze eye of the head. A wood wedge is tapped down into the diagonal slot on the top of the handle to force the two halves outward to press against the head. This provides sufficient friction to hold the head on the handle.
How do you wedge a hammer handle?
A common way to do this is to simply insert a metal wedge into the slot or kerf once the head has been placed onto the new handle: which then pushes apart the slot and thus holds the metal head onto the handle.
What is the difference between a pickaxe and a mattock?
A mattock has a broad blade on one end of the head and a pick or axe on the other, which makes it good for digging, prying, and chopping. A pickaxe has a pick on one side and a chisel on the other, making it good for prying.
