    Digging Tool Template

    Tried to do a design for a DIY shovel digger. Not that talented, can't draw a straight with a ruler.
    Even bigger joke trying to do it on computer.
    Would some one be kind enough to post a template, I can print and trace to shovel?
    Thanks, Deep1
    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

ID:	1674602when I did the mode on this shovel I took a face shield off grinding hood & placed it on shovel head then used a heat gun to form it.Then marked off my lines on what was now my template.However after having done that, I set the template aside and free handed the cuts.To make the plugs smaller I placed the now moded shovel in the vice,put a little squeeze to it added acetylene heating (cutting torch) did some quenching and after the prep & paint I’m now waiting for a day of beep& dig.Click image for larger version.

    This is the same size shovel I used for the mode Attachment 1674603the length of the shovel head is 8” the width is 6” after rolling in the width is now 5 1/4”
    Edited for some added info the 5 1/4” is from outside to outside on the foot tang.The width of the shovel head is now 3 1/4” . Unless a guy just can’t pin point that should be nice enough size plug just over 10” circumference

    I opted to just modify my bank account and got a serrated Lesche Sampson t-handle

    (Of course, I'm about as handy as a pirate with two hooks and an itchy rear end....)
