Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9909800A1] Tool, e.g. a scoop, a spade, a pitch fork, a broom handle or the like, and a method of manufacturing the same. The tool comprises a shaft (2) a tool part (4) and a handle (3), which tool part (4) and handle (3) are produced of the same form materials. The shaft (2) comprises a metal pipe (8), which metal pipe (8) has at least one curve (12) in the area between the handle (3) and the tool part (4), and is encircled by form materials (7) of the same composition as the handle (12) and the tool part (4). A first joint (5) between the handle (3) and the form materials (7) that encircle the metal pipe (8) and a second joint (6) between the tool part (4) and the form materials that encircle the metal pipe (8) constitute a tight joint of the same form materials. The method includes a rotation of the shaft (2) to achieve friction welding between the encircling form materials (7) of the shaft (2) and the handle (3), and between said encircling form materials (7) and the tool part (4).
