Plastic Dip

I bought Plastic Dip at Menards,
http://www.plastidip.com/
The product works on cheap screwdrivers
I also coated a door panel tool, it is more better looking, It was so thin, so I wrapped electrical tape then I dipped the tool in the bottle, let dry and put second layer.

Yes that stuff does work good I have used it for years. It is useful for a lot of things besides just coating previously bare tool handles such as recoating old worn handles and making cushion grips for other tools, I have even used it as insulation for wire connections although there is a better product made just for that purpose. Good tip thanks for bringing it up!

I have had good luck with it, I just clean the part to be dipped with a body shop wax/grease remover, lacquer thinner would probably work just as well, dip and let dry. It seems to hold up nearly as good as the factory dipped tools. I have some screwdrivers I dipped to insulate them from the tip of the shank to the handle for electrical work and they have been coated for several years now, admittedly they don't see a lot of use but they have been coated at least 5 years now.

I like to use the stuff on battery cutoff switches that are under the car, to coat the terminals and seal them from the elements!
