The manufacturer or brand of the hammer is not important. The handles can be used for many types of hammers.
The important factor is, WILL THE HANDLE FIT THE EYE OF THE TOOL/HAMMER?
1. MEASURE THE EYE SIZE of you hammer- The long (major) and width (minor).
2. Next determine its shape- round, rectangular, oval or teardrop.
3. Choose the length.
4. Handle dimensions should almost equal eye size. You may need to file or sand a wood handle to fit. You can always make it smaller. YOU CAN NOT MAKE IT BIGGER!
5. Pound the handle through the eye.
6. Trim off any excess handle protruding through the eye.
7. Wood handles come with a wood wedge which is driven into the kerf first.
8. The steel wedge is driven in at a 30 degree angle to the head (about 2 o'clock).
NOTE- Axe handles will have the thin part of the eye towards the blade. Hammer hammers have the large, rounded end toward the head.
