Here are some handles i made for this cool but pesky little tool. It is a combination groover, marker, and has three different size edge bevelers.  Problem with it is its a pain to keep changing tips, the allen screw wears out and i drop those little pieces constantly. So i made handles to fit the bevelers problems solved!

The reason i'm posting is i will make anyone here a set of handles, for these or any other use, unfinished or shellacked out of whatever wood with burnishing grooves if wanted for a 20 spot. If you would like more finish, a certain wood or something that will take me hours to make then we can discuss pricing.

Those sure are pretty.   FYI>>>  the neoprene hammer    is a wheel and axle shaft from a skateboard  handle slips over axle. you  might want to complete sets  

You know,  i was kicking this around with a buddy yesterday 

what I need is  handles for my stamps.  I get So PISSED when the stamp twists sideways in my fingers just as i am hitting it

MAN, that makes me mad. So I was thinking a flat sided  with a hole in it.  of course i understand that the hole is going to warble with use.. that is a different subject that a shim could fix  

something that would not twit in your hand.  

 

found it,   walmart.  rubber childs pencil holder

That is a good idea indeed, i make a few of my stamps out of stainless bolts, the threads aren't fun to hold so i was using that shrink wrap for electrical wires to cover them. These would be much better.

Chuck, I'm surprised you didn't make them out of antler.:lol:

Good idea though, should make them more usable instead of fiddling around changing bits.

I will! Measure the diameter of you tips so i get the right hole size, Do you want burnishing grooves also?  They sure are handy on smaller jobs you dont have to change tools, just bevel and burnish.
