Super splitter repair 3.0

The original super splitter repair managed to keep the maul head from flying off at the handle after several hours of repeated use, but the space in between the maul and the handle has increased along with a wiggle action that seems to be getting worse.

I used about half of each tube in a Devcon two part epoxy kit. This stuff is very strong, but I've never tested it on such extreme pressures as what it's about to go through once the chopping starts back up. Stay tuned to see if it's strong enough to hold up under real world conditions.

It should hold. I used this once to fix a 16lb. sledge hammer. I used that hammer to knock out the pins that hold the tracks on dozers and loaders for years and it never failed.
