"Shover" Is Hammer And Shovel
"I invented what I call the ęshover' one day after I had to repair an electric pasture fence and the only tool I had in my pickup was my shovel," says Clint Dearden, Scott City, Kansas.
  He took an old shovel that was missing its handle and welded a short length of pipe over it.
  Dearden fashioned a hammer out of pipe and drilled a matching hole through both the hammer handle and the extension pipe. A 1/4-in. clip pin holds the two tools together into an adult-sized shovel.
  He painted the first shover fluorescent orange because he found an extra can of paint in the shop. Since then, he's made a second one that he painted black.   
  "The shover is simply a time and frustration saver, especially for a 19-year-old who has far better things to do than repair a fence."
