Diggy, Bangy things

Been on a bit of a tool restoration kick of late, mucking around with Axes in the Axe Hole, but have some other striking tools that need some work.
Here's an unknown brand mattock, Cyclone 10lb Sledge, and Hytest Forged Tools 7lb Sledge
The Hytest Sledge handle was loose, I'd tried soaking with some Linseed oil but the wood was too far gone and split up
Bit of a shame, as the handle was quite nice otherwise
Here's a little Birkinshaw Lump Hammer. I thought they'd miss spelled Birkenshaw but now I'm sure it was the maker, not the place, though the maker's stamp isn't clear. I got a new handle for it but it probably just needs a bit more wedging to tighten it up
