You can use this insert to hold 3/8" Tools in the Hosaluk 12" and 18" Handles or you can make wooden tool handles that offer the convenience of the tool changing feature of the Hosaluk Tool handles. These adaptors offer an easy change alternative to fitting a single tool into a wooden handle. After drilling the proper hole, the adaptor is glued into the handle with epoxy. The hole is drilled deeper than needed for the adaptor to allow for tool adjustment. Each adaptor has two set screws for securing the tool in place. Adaptors are available with center holes of 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8". They require holes of 5/8", 3/4" and 7/8" to be drilled in the handle before gluing them in place. Spade bits work well for this as they make a slightly oversized hole.
