Beginner's question regarding hoof rasps

Hello there, I was wondering if any of you knew how to attach the wooden handle of a hoof rasp. This is my first time getting one and I can't seem to figure out how the handle works... I'd appreciate some help! ;)

Did the site you bought it from say if it was a twist on or not?

The wood ones usually just push on. Put it on as best you can, then turn it upside down and slam it straight down a time or two on concrete or asphalt. That's the way my farrier always puts his on, lol.

Some are screw on though. You'll need to put some elbow grease behind it and really push hard while twisting the handle (righty tighty!). I would try twisting it first, and if that doesn't work, try banging it on.

I have the plastic kind that screw on.

All the ones I use tighten right up with just 1/4-1/2 a turn.

I will try these. Thank you! I'm pretty sure it doesn't screw on, I've been looking down inside and I don't see any grooves of the sort. But, I'll try it. ;)
