#313427 Easy Supa' Comfy Handles

Posted by alugilaC on 23 March 2012 - 08:17 PM in Homemades

I tend to hurt my hands a lot, so I don't like to sand things for 10-30 minutes, also I don't have any kind of electrical sander, though I'm looking into acquiring one. This is just a shortcut I've found to avoid extensive sanding, but yes, I do find that sanded handles are a bit comfier.

I took bits of the PAPbow by Lt. Stefan and Ryan's Pumpbow that I liked best.

Tired of sanding your wood handles for hours? If you're like me you have totally forgotten your scroll saw table can tilt

I find that ~30 degrees works the best, all that is left to do is take your block o' wood handles and cut off the edges

Just a little sanding to get rid of the burrs, and bam! easy comfy handles.
This may be redundant to some, but I'm guessing I'm not the only one who hadn't figured this out yet.
Flames, comments, praise?

If you still have the templates, could you post them, i'm very interested in that handle design.
