    I admire your work.

    As I was using this http://www.harborfreight.com/16-inch...pan-67068.html. I though about posting the link to this dustpan.

    I am not a big fan of harborfreight but you do luck on a good deal sometimes.

    Yours looks very good and very functional.

    I could use something like the one Paul D built, but since I'm planning to go to Harbor Freight tomorrow, I might just have to pick up the one Paul G showed instead.

    I've got a large metal one now, but the handle has been bent, so now it flexes when it's headily loaded. Also, the front edge i warped, so it doesn't sit flush with the floor when I'm trying to sweep things into it.

    That is great, but I like my coal shovel, the handle is longer

    Cool Paul D, I think you could do with some of Brents welding in the corners of the pan. I like the handle a lot though.
    cheers

    I've though of getting a grain scoop/coal shovel, but it seems it would be harder to maneuver around the tight spots where the chips tend to congregate in my shop.

    Put a longer handle on it and you could shovel snow with it

    Pretty cool idea. I need a larger one myself. I may steal your design

    Paul's post reminded me I need to get a new DP... I have one that my ex-SIL gave me when they were shutting down the Uncle Ben's plant in Houston and he was collecting things they were throwing away... their janitorial department was throwing away several large plastic dust pans.. but the handle has broken off mine and now it has a "thumb" hole where the handle was, but the edges are sharp and one of these days I'm going to cut myself... he also scored a couple of roll around tool boxes, one of which I got, and a compressor that I didn't get... selfish SIL kept it for himself.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
