Rebuilt Sharpshooter Shovel
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.
