Rebuilt Sharpshooter Shovel
“I wasn’t satisfied with my commercial sharpshooter shovel so I replaced the shovel’s original wooden handle with a longer one made of oil field sucker rod. The longer handle provides more leverage and added weight so it makes digging easier,” says Michael Pounds, Corona, N. Mex.
  The original sharpshooter shovel came with a thin, serrated shovel head and a riveted-on, 3-ft. long wooden T-handle. Pounds replaced it with a 5-ft. long one made from 1-in. dia. sucker rod.
  “I use it to start fence post holes. Once I’ve set the post in the hole, I use the bell end of the tool to tamp and pack the soil back into the hole,” says Pounds.
