    Ok I missed the wedge with the metal and tried to use the handle instead a couple of times so now it's time to replace the handle I like the fiberglass handle on my maul better than the wood on my sledge so I opted for a fiberglass handle instead of wood but the hole in the sledge is way bigger than the handle end (1/4" all the way around) in the instructions they say you can use BB's as filler will it hold is this normal also there is a metal clip on the handle end does this get epoxied in the head as the instructions make no mention of this piece
    Thanks

    Yes - Epoxy. Use regular stuff, not 5 minute. I used spent Pop-rivet mandrels as filler since they were on the floor of the shop. I also used narrow strips of duct tape to seal arounf the head/handle interface. Then cut of excess handle after epoxy hardened.
