This item has had good reviews to date so maybe the supplier has changed something. It arrived today, well packaged as others have mentioned and the parts are good quality however they don't fit together! The wooden handle is significantly too big for the plastic shovel. This really needs a lathe to cut it down to the right size - has to be quite a lot smaller. I'll then have to look for a couple of screws (OK, no big deal but irritating) to attach the handle to the shovel itself - not supplied. Something so simple and probably I can find the tools and time to make it fit rather than returning it but if I were you, I'd find another supplier whose product might be sourced from a manufacturer with some sense.
