replacement handle

Page 1 of 2  
Does anybody know where I can get a replacement rubber handle for a Fuller Hatchet? True Temper used to use these, too, with their "Rocket" line. They were black rubber and used a 2-sided tape on the steel tool shaft to secure the rubber after rinsing with gasoline to soften the sticky tape's adhesive. Email welcome

My favourite claw hammer (wooden shaft) is bound with tennis racquet tape, easily obtainable from any sports shop. Improves grip and reduces fatigue.

Any treatment possibilities for that bursitis Doug? I had bursitis on both elbows at different times and it finally irritated me enough that I went to a specialist to have it treated. His solution? He used a syringe to remove the fluid. It was a relatively painless in office procedure. Two or three times on each elbow a few weeks apart and the bursitis has disappeared completely without returning (so far). That was at least five years ago.

On Fri, 15 Jan 2010 08:03:45 -0500, the infamous snipped-for-privacy@teksavvy.com scrawled the following:

I've found most of my physical maladies have been directly related to diet. First I found an allergy to the Nightshade family (got over the potato and eggplant portion, but remain cursed by tomatoes and chilis, damnitall), then milk (got over it), then corn (nearly over it), and I think coffee is now giving me plantar fasciitis. It's mush better on days that I don't drink much. <sigh>
I learned about my allergies to the Nightshade family by going to a woman who was studying to be a Naturopath. She muscle-tested me (kinesthesiology) and it turned out true. Within a week, I felt ten years younger and half again stronger. That was 25 years ago.
Has anyone else gotten over plantar fasciitis? What worked? (In case it's not coffee.) I really -need- full use of my left foot.

my wife has been treating her's with ice. 30-45 minutes of resting her foot on an icepack at night will cause the problem to not be there in the mornings. that lasts for a couple of days. there's some research that shows it can also be alleviated with a foot brace, so your foot is flat during sleeping hours. when you sleep, your toes can curl down. hours in this position can cause the problem.

Most of the gel inserts will be of some help. Each case is a little different.

I usually wear Reebok Men's Classic Suedes with 1" very spongy foam soles. They're extremely comfortable for me.
With every type of shoe I tried gel inserts, they rode up, rode back, or rode sideways and burst with 1/4 mile. I used to do a lot of walking, and still put in a good 7-10 miles a week. <sigh>

My wife had this real bad a few years back. Her doc sent her to a physical therapist who gave her a bunch of exercises to do. Many of them involved one of those giant stretchy bands.
After a few weeks of the exercises all the pain was completely gone. She now wears custom orthotics (shoe inserts) to prevent reoccurrence and they seem to work well as she hasn't had any more trouble.

I have. What worked? Stretching. And better shoes.
http://www.plantarfasciitisbraces.com/plantar_fasciitis_stretching_exercises . html
Specifically, the ones labelled "Calf/Achilles Stretch" and "Stair Stretch".
IIRC, you use a wheelchair, which quite possibly makes these two impractical for you. The "Towel Stretch" might be a good substitute, though, or you might be able to figure out some way to modify the two that worked for me. I would add, too, that the "15 to 30 seconds" described isn't really enough. My doctor told me that if you don't stretch the calf for at least a minute, it's not much different from not stretching it at all. Also, IMO, the illustration for the "Calf/Achilles Stretch" doesn't show the back foot positioned nearly far enough away from the wall. The more acute the angle between your leg and the floor, the more you'll stretch, and (IME) the more benefit you'll get.
You should _expect_ a burning sensation in your calf. If you don't feel that, you're not stretching enough. Keep stretching. It'll go away. Repeat as many times as you can tolerate (the doc told me you can't stretch too much). You will need to do this several times a day at first, then daily for perhaps several weeks, and then at least occasionally for the rest of your life (or for as long as you want to remain pain-free).
According to the doc, prevention consists of regular stretching, avoiding long periods of standing on hard surfaces, and wearing shoes with firm soles and good arch support.

I have used to prostretch to rehab feet and ankles from women who developed problems fromwearing high heels. The second device is new to me. I came across it when searching for the prostretch. It looks good though. Shop around for price, They are sold many diiferent places.

Paul, was hers at her heel or the ball of her foot? Mine's at the ball, under the index toe of my left foot. Occasionally, the right foot gets a similar (much milder) pain under the index and 4th toe proximal/metatarsal joints.

The ball of her foot. One foot, I forget which right now, was much worse than the other, but both bothered her, too.

Excellent. Does she still have the instructions? Most of the exercises should have names. Could you ask her what they are for me? TIA.

A bit of a search did not turn up her instructions, but she described them for me.
She would freeze a water bottle and then place it on the carpet and roll it slowly back and forth with the bottom of her foot for a minute or so, then switch feet, then repeat several times. The combination of cold and stretching really helped when the pain was bad.
Stretches included standing on a step with only the toes and ball of foot and then lowering heel and holding for 30-60 seconds. Then alternate feet and repeat several times.
Using one of those wide stretchy resistance bands (you can get at sporting goods stores) she would lay on back, loop the band under the toes and ball of her foot, and pull on the band firmly to stretch the foot. Again, alternating and repeating. This was done with the toes pointed up (toward ceiling) but also to the left and right (twisting the leg). Supposedly stretches slightly different parts of the foot.
Then, also using the band and while still lying on back, raise one leg straight up and pull down on the band to stretch the foot again. Alternate, repeat....
Those were the main exercises. My wife said during the 2 or 3 sessions she had with the physical therapist, the PT did a long deep tissue massage of both feet. It was uncomfortable during the massage, but gave her a lot of relief afterwards. The PT said it helps loosen scar tissue and stretch the tendons.
HTH,

are done by ART practitioners. ART stand for active release technique. It really hurts when it is done, but can cause dramatic releif afterwards. A lot of advanced athletes use this and some have gone from helpless to winning competitions in a few days time.

Thank CROM they aren't! I'm aware of the practice and have had something quite similar, accupressure, used on my neck and shoulder muscles. It hurts, but once the knots are released, the pain is gone in under a minute.
My niece worked on it during Christmas and it hurt like holy hell and felt worse the next day. Ugh!

Thanks immensely, Paul. I'll try those immediately.
I also need to remember to stop squatting. I do that a lot in my work (handyman) so I need to remember to put my knee pads on and kneel instead.
Losing about 20 lbs will help take the stress off, too. I think I'll do that tomorrow morning, before lunch. ;)
