My older Bessy's and many of my "F" type clamps have plain wood handles that are not very large in diameter. This can make it rather hard for my old and slightly arthritic hands to get a good grip and crank them down. I need some form of application or tape I can wrap the handles in to give me a bit more torque.
I've looked at sports tape for raquets and clubs, but they don't seem to have a lot of tack and the sales person noted that; 1, I'd have to put electrical tape at each end to keep the tape from inraveling, and 2, sawdust might make the little bit of tack the tape did have go away. Wrapping electrical tape at each ent would effectively reduce the grip area and likely would not last long without peeling off itself.
I know that there are many of you who have faced this same problem. How did you cope?
