Rockler Contour Sanding Grips

Item #
96% of 100

Our double-ended contour sanding blocks make it easy to sand both concave and convex shapes without distorting or diminishing the crispness of the profile. Each Sanding Grip has a convex profile on one end and a concave profile on the opposite end. The two ends are connected by a narrow flexible section that provides a comfortable grip, and can also be used for sanding. Made from a flexible rubber that adapts to minor variations in diameter. Grippy texture prevents abrasive slipping and hand fatigue. Set includes a total of six blocks with the following inside/outside diameters: 1/4'', 3/8'', 1/2'', 5/8'', 3/4'' and 7/8''. Diameters are molded into the rubber for easy selection.

(1) 1/4'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 3/8'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 1/2'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 5/8'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 3/4'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 7/8'' Contour Sanding Grip

Woodworking Experience:
Needed product
These made possible the sanding to remove paint from plastic trim molding on front door. Combined with quality sandpaper that has no slip backing and holds up well these made a difficult job much easier.

unique grips
Have only used one once, but that will change. I can totally see the functionality of the device. Just the right pliability, too. Not too flexible and not too stiff. I'm sure I'm going to love them.

They work very well
I'm refinishing my front door which has a large amount of inset router profiles. The countour blocks make the detailed sanding job much more efficient and preserved the original profiles.

Obviously invaluable for sanding contours while avoiding splinters and cuts to the fingers. Especially nice that concave and convex is handled with one tool.

Do you carry a flat sanding grip?. I know you did in the past. What you show are all contoured.
Mudd S on Nov 25, 2017
How long are they?
Jeff on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length is 2 3/4" long.
Are these reusable? In other words, they're expensive for using on just one project.
Starwyn S on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are reusable. They're rubber and you wrap sandpaper around them. I really like these in particular as they have two profiles on each blank. Often I am able to sand the mating sides with only one pad that way.
Is that 9.99 for one piece or one set?
Mike L on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You get the set for that price. I use my set frequently. E.g., I build cedar soap dishes with multiple grooves. The sanding grips easily handle the variety of surfaces.
The reason I buy Rockler's red sanding blocks is that they don't leave black marks. These sanding grips appear to be black; do they ever leave black marks on painted surfaces? I want to use them to sand prior to and after priming and painting coats.
J C on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There should be no reason to have the contour sanding grips come in actual contact with the piece you are sanding, the sandpaper covers the grip when using, whether sanded with the rounded edge or the convex profile opposite the rounded edge. I personally use the for pieces that I have routed i.e. Mouldings for various projects.
Based on the reviews it seems these work. However, I have a question. Are the sizes listed exact? If they are, wouldn't wrapping a piece of sandpaper around it make the diameter larger, or smaller depending on which edge you are using? For example, if I have a 1/2" cove and wrap the sandpaper over the convex end of the 1/2" grip will sanding enlarge the cover to over 1/2"? Currently I use a dowel that's less than 1/2".
Barry M on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you use the 3m sanding paper, it is so thin you won't notice. It also lasts longer than regular sanding paper.
