Broke a hammer the other day. The wood handle snapped. I went to Lowes to buy a handle for it. Years ago I had bought a handle for another hammer I had so I figure go back and get another handle. Only to find out Lowes stopped carrying hammer handles 3-4 years ago. On my way home I stopped off at the emporium and they didn't have any hammer handles. Checked Home Depots web page to see they don't have handles. Call me old school but I can not see throwing away a perfectly good hammer head just cause a wood handle broke.
