keyboard. this means pain and some numbness in the hands arms and
i needed to remove some plaster completely from my basement foundation
(this exposes it for waterproofing material). the job is pretty small
and i didn't want to spent $400 on a great hand grinder/compressor. so
i got the $40 black and decker, one disc, and a heavy duter wire brush
type attachment. i powered it up with the heavy wire attachment and my
hands staring going numb after less them 1 minutes work! i stopped.
then i put on the disc, better, but still no way i could do this for a
couple of hours.
so i went to this site and started reading. my question is: is there
that big a difference in getting a good air hand grinder (Ingersoll
Rand) and wearing vibration gloves? or should i just try and get my
contractor to do the work?
btw, i have no problem working with my hands in cases where a vibrating
power tool is not involved.
