Of course they have hoes in America!


A hoedown is a square dance, or a gathering where a square dance is featured. The word is commonly used to describe any country or hillbilly type gathering, generally one with fiddle and banjo music. Hoedowns were originally harvest festivals of sorts, a gathering held in the fall as the crops were brought in. The farmers who attended would put their hoes down and come to a dance, hence the word "hoedown".

In the UK we have garden implements called hoes; I realise that does not
translate well to American and the connotation but there you are we have
them. They have a blade at the end of a handle and you use it to break up
the soil around plants to keep weeds down and aerate the soil; you go and do
some hoeing. You could use them as we have in some Labs to scrape off wax.

There are ice breakers that will serve this purpose - but silver "duck" tape
will hold the putty knife on the end of a broom handle (wrapped around
several time) - then you can turn it around and sweep up the mess!

Hello everyone,
I am looking to purchase a very long handled paraffin scraper that you
attach a razor blade at the end.  This is so I can stand and scrape instead
of squatting and using a putty knife.  I checked the Fisher and VWR catalogs
and was unsucessful.  I have called at least two Home Depot stores and they
don't sell them either.  Can you direct me to some company or place where I
can buy this ?
I will appreciate your assistance.
