I've got  Bencher Hex key, which I generally like, but I don't care for the feel of the plastic fingerpieces. Anyone know of a source of alternative fingerpieces for this key?

Here's a site that makes finger pieces for several different paddles ...

http://2bradioparts.com/index.html

BUT, your HEX key is not listed. Contact him to ask anyway.

Really nice fingerpieces are made of wood. Get some appropriate hardwood and shape it however pleases you.
Drill a couple of holes for the screws.

A nice project for an afternoon.

You're welcome! Cheesy

Igor (or is it "Eye-gor?") might have a few pieces of finger left over from lunch.

...you WERE talking about chicken fingers, right?  Huh

I didn't know chickens had fingers. Toes and claws I think.
