Posted by KAMIKAZEE DIY on 23 Dec. 2018,11:18Would like to replace the handle on a brick trowel from wood to durasoft.
Had anyone done this before?
Looking for some advice or info??
Posted by lutonlagerlout on 23 Dec. 2018,20:06why?
I have used wood,durasoft,leather,and the hard plastic ones
the handle makes little difference mate
its just a tool
the man maketh the job
Posted by KAMIKAZEE DIY on 23 Dec. 2018,20:18Extra comfort i was thinking. Had a look on MT website i think I'd only be able to swap for a plastic handles.
Do you think it's worth swapping wooden handle for plastic?
Thanks for reply.
Have a good xmas.

Posted by lutonlagerlout on 24 Dec. 2018,15:29Kami I used wooden handles for years with no problems,the only reason I use durasoft now is that is what is commonly available
leather MT are a bit snazzier and pricier,but its the balance and weight that you buy MT for
my 19-10 canadian pattern trowel is down to around 19-7.5 now ,I was hoping it would see me out,but I can still out lay young frank 2:1 and he has a 19:11
