Easy Supa' Comfy Handles
Posted 21 March 2012 - 09:33 PM
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?

You can take off more material in less time.
I prefer to use a spindle sander, but you could also use rasps, files, or heck a Dremel to work down your handle blank.

Like Eik said, tilting the table will take off much more wood in much less time. Correct me if I'm wrong but, I assume you still finish it off by sanding down the edges right?

That's what I use, and I have some smaller course files that I use for tight corners. Then I usually finish it off with emery cloth (which is really just a long narrow roll of sandpaper) on the curved surfaces and a foam sanding block on the more flat portions.

Both of you need to get a Dremel and a finishing buff bit..........(Dremel)
