this is a thread in which I will be very interested.
I have used Polymorph (UK) to help me with my saw frame.I have
trouble with arthritis and my thumbs hurt when I do the pincer
movement to tighten the saw blades.
I still prefer the bog standard saw frame and so have made a 2 1/2
ins long, flat sausage shape with a slit to fit over the wing nuts.
This gives me a very large wing nut to work with and it works very
well. I have also made these a permanent feature on anything which
Polymorph has made a good handle into which fits the key for my
pendant drill. It gives me more to hold onto if you see what I mean.
I too find it very hard and I like the idea of using cushioned tape,
thanks for that one.
PS. Using the same design wing nut shape makes very good soda bottle
top openers. More leverage, less pain to finger and thumb.
Keep the ideas coming, cheers, Ruth.
