I turned the grip on my metal lathe using a mandrel I built. shaping with a file & sand paper. I am going to look for a used small wood lathe after the holidays. For some reason I don't think cork dust is good for the internal parts on a precision machine tool But a electric drill to spin the handle or even a hand file & sand paper will make a grip with a little work.
