Reducing Vibration

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and joined because I need your advice...

I do art on pine planks using a Dremel 2001 coupled with the the flex shaft attachment. I am having a issues with vibration in my hand and want to take action to stop it. I am using Valeo anti-vibe gloves which helped but I still get the tingling feeling along with a sensation of my tendons "resonating" when I tap my fingers together after I'm done working.

Is there something I can put over the flex shaft handpiece? or should I see if I can stuff my gloves with more soft material?

Just any tips or recommendations on how to avoid vibration in my hand would be fantastic! Thank you

You are working with a tool which inherently causes vibration.

You might try taking some wheel weights(look for "strips" of the flat kind)and taping them to grinder body........any weight you add to handle unit,"should" act as a sink for vibrations.Thinking of course how this changes the shape of handle.....possibly a good thing.Not an end-all solution,but may spurn another,more professional solution?BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Thanks BW, I will try that! My end goal is just to stop the tool from transferring the vibration to my hand.
