Improved air-nailer handles
I use a lot of pneumatic nailers for both finish and framing work, and I noticed that after a while, their handles were beginning to hurt the palm of my hand. To remedy the problem, I wrapped the nailer handles with some tennis-racquet handle tape that I bought at a local sporting-goods shop.
Tennis-racquet tapes are approximately 1 in. wide by 36 in. long. They are quite good at absorbing vibration, so the palm of my hand doesn’t hurt anymore. And because the tennis-racquet tapes also absorb perspiration, my customized nailers are easier to hang onto now.
