Tips on older raft oar handle replacement
I have some old oars from the 80's, and the plastic handles have cracked and fallen off. Hopefully the pic uploads, but in a nutshell I've got a funky setup I haven't seen before and I'm not sure if I should just put it in a vice and starting hauling on it or if theres a trick I should know about.
The base of the handle is made out of plastic and is inserted into the oar, and the handle itself had an aluminum "core" that the handle base was formed around. I think I can take this to a machine shop and have them drill it out, but I would like to be able to do it myself if possible.
