Default Ice cream scoops

I'm not sure if this is the right area of the forum to post this but I'll give it a chance.
Recently a customer asked about ice cream scoops and if I could make some for him that he could sell in his store. So...I ordered a scoop (same as the PSI one PKISCOOP3) and was wondering if anyone here has used these. My question involves the scoop/spade end that is glued into the handle. My first thought is that they, the scoops, look very flimsy when the end is glued into the handle material and if someone really wanting ice cream might break or crack the handle. I like my ice cream cold and hard and I can put a lot of pressure on a scoop as I know others can really crank down on the handle. So are these scoops acceptable for heavy duty use. I currently use a one piece metal scoop that I've had no problems with. Thanks in advance for helping out!

Watching as I have wondered about these, also. Looks failure prone the way they mount in the handles.

Check out the scoop from Woodcraft. The threaded tang goes in the handle about 1.75 and has a heavy duty matching ferrule....all stainless steel.👍

Tom:

Charlie is correct on the Woodcraft Ice cream scoop by Woodriver part number 153928 on sale for $11.55. I have made several of them for family and yet to have one broken.

Have tried others and they don't measure up to the Woodriver.

Cheers

Charlie

I have made around a half dozen of the PSI scoops and not had any problem with them yet. I do use plenty of epoxy when I glue them up though.

I've made several of the PSI model as well, in both wood (olive) and PR. All are still going strong. A good fit of the tang and the right amount of epoxy should help ensure strong seating. I made a video for one of my PR ones, here: https://youtu.be/8KDS2ijNW7o

Hi Charlie, nice to hear from you. A very good friend of mine recently joined IAP, David Ward (Cali-co) and I told him about you. You might be getting a message from Dave.
