    DYI Digging Shovel

    Had my Lesche shovel stolen out of my truck when I was at the store on christmas eve.

    Man was I pissed.

    Anyway I decided to make my own out of a Tractor Supply Mini Shovel and used a cutting wheel, grinding wheel and round file to
    Make this… Not bad for $14 and a lil labor in the shop.

    The best thing is... I like this one better than my stolen Lesche!

    Man that looks good; please come back and tell us how good it was when you find the fella who stole your last one.

    But hey, bright side, at least he will have something to dig his own grave with.

    Great job on the modification! Perhaps a new business venture for you?

    Sorry about your Lesche being stolen out of your truck, but you did a great job on this shovel. That thing looks like it would slice through the nastiest of roots and even Thugs jugular veins. I can't stand a low down Thief n Thug.

    Now YOU have the better shovel. You did a great job on the newly designed old shovel. I’d rather have the one you made. Congratulations on on great job.

    People just don't respect other people's property. Trust me, ''karma'' will be revenged. You sure did a swell job of making your own digger, and it will most likely mean more to you than the Lesche.

    That's a nice looking shovel. And not a bad price either.

    Oh bummer, that's a great looking shovel they stole. Better install some truck accessories that serves as a good place to store your shovel. Maybe an under-seat storage like this will do?

    I'd like to try to make a shovel, not as talented as you guys.
    Would someone be kind enough to post a template.
    Thanks.
    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.
