rubberized grips on sanders
« on: September 26, 2013, 09:14 PM »
If the subject line doesn't say enough, basically I'm fond of rubberized grips. I was looking to buy the RTS400 the other day and checked it out and am concerned it will get slippery in my hands which tend to get sweaty a lot. Sure wish the rubberized grip like on the RO90 went across the whole line. Of course my preference may not at all be shared by others, but that would be my latest Festool wish. In the mean time, are there tapes that can be applied that provide extra grip that don't move around and leave a bunch of gooey adhesive residue? Or a rubber boot of some sort? Just trying to find a way forward.

Here's a different take on the subject, I wear gloves. The anti-vibration, gel filled kind with the cut-off finger tips. They vent some of the heat from your hand since they're not fully enclosed, and you get all the grip you need from the material of the glove. The little gel pockets really help with long sanding sessions, but I often just pop them on even with just a few minutes sanding out of habit.
