This "cracked" tool is a garden digger. The weld holding the claws together was so flimsy that when it cracked, it fell all the way off. I guess my rocky ground is hard on my tools. I thought it a perfect first weld to learn on. First, my hubby taught me to grind off the old weld. Then I welded the claws back together. It took me a few attempts! But finally, I got the hang of it... enough! Not pretty, I know. But newbies have got to start somewhere!
